The 2020 Australasian Permaculture Convergence has been postponed to April 2021 due to the COVID19 pandemic. We plan to keep the program as close as possible to the one included here and will make changes as necessary through the year ahead.
The Australian Permaculture Convergence is a biennial gathering of permaculture people from around the country and the Asia Pacific region. All people with an interest in permaculture and regenerative development are invited to join us for 4 days of workshops, hands-on activities, and discussions on how we can both celebrate and support nature’s abundance. The Convergence is being organised by Northey Street City Farm on behalf of Permaculture Australia.
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. Earth Care is obviously essential, however without People Care and nurturing healthy, sustainable relating, the task of coming together and working as a community can be greatly hindered. Finally, if attention and conscious intention isn’t given to the economic sustainability of communities, and the distribution of resources isn’t managed equitably, then communities may struggle to be truly sustainable in the long term.
A Community Gardens and Permaculture Festival will be held at Northey Street City Farm prior to the Convergence, in conjunction with our weekly Organic Farmers Market. The date is Sunday 11 April 2021. The Festival will showcase Community Gardens and sustainable living in cities.
We will organise post-APC tours to Permaculture properties in Northern NSW, Brisbane River Valley & Lockyer Valley, Granite Belt and the Sunshine Coast.
