This collaborative event is the annual showcase & celebration of permaculture goodness from all around Aotearoa. This year the South Coast Environment Centre is hosting us at Robert and Robyn Guyton's internationally renown forest garden in Riverton.


The venue, studded with the jewels of the region’s heritage fruit trees, will provide us with varied spaces for meeting and mooting amongst the circles of trees. These will include their insulated community-sized Mongolian yurt, tepee and an enormous grow-house and teaching space.

Workshops will cover deeper issues of meaningful relationships with land, especially plants. We will look at approaches to creating desirable communities and networks between disparate groups, and the value of looking to our predecessors and their approach to living within their means. We will examine global “messages” and trends to take note of, ways to communicate worthwhile ideas effectively, learning to recognise ossified thinking and ways to create new ones, and much more.
