The first annual Ashevillage Building Convergence (ABC) is a citywide collaboration and celebration of what's beautiful, practical, and life-affirming about sustainability and takes place throughout Asheville from June 19th – 21st.

Other activities of the ABC include an opening celebration night with City Repair from Portland, Oregon on Thursday, June 19th at Jubilee. On Friday, June 20th there will be an Ashevillage Town Meeting, also at Jubilee, with hundreds of local leaders and citizens, participatory round table discussions, and inspiring presentations by nationally renowned sustainability pioneers, including Julia Butterfly Hill. Saturday, June 21st is the Ashevillage in Action day, when a dozen local organizations will be hosting hands-on participatory projects – with as many local community members who would like to join.
