11-15 April – 11th Australasian Permaculture convergence in Turangi near Taupo
The 11th Australasian Permaculture Convergence, running in Turangi from April 11-15th, will see more than 500 people planning, designing and creating a resilient future – through permaculture in practice: urban design, sustainable transport, community economics, seed saving etc.
Keynote speaker and co-founder of Permaculture Bill Mollison will be emphasising the imperative to address the economic dimensions of our global crisis.
“…it’s no good any longer just being an organic gardener or farmer, we have to be effective financial and political units. We have to become bankers just as we have had to become seed savers.”
With peak oil, climate change and an unsustainable monetary system impacting us from all directions, this event comes at a time when we need it most.
In addition to Mr Mollison, a range of expert local international and local speakers will facilitate interactive workshops on transforming natural and human environments into healthy, connected and sustainable landscapes.
