The Australasian Permaculture Convergence promises 4 days of rich offerings from a variety of experienced leaders in the world of permaculture.
The program will include talks and workshops covering topics relevant to the three ethics of Permaculture, which are Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. We feel it is important to explore the bigger picture of what true sustainability entails.
As well as thought-provoking keynote speakers, the daytime workshops will each be 90 minutes long to allow for more participation and hands-on activities.
To find out more about the Convergence please follow this LINK.
