South East Permaculture Convergence

SCPA -South East Producers will be hosting the 2014 South East Permaculture Convergence on 16th– 17th of August at Mumbulla School, Bega St, Bega.

The South East Permaculture Convergence is a weekend for the permaculture community of the South East to come together and celebrate. That’s anyone from Moruya to Wollongong to Braidwood to Canberra to Bairnsdale to Orbost and Bega.

The theme of the convergence is ‘sharing’. We’ll be sharing ideas, skills, stories, plants, passion, music, seeds, songs, food and hope.  It’s open to all those with an interest in permaculture; whether you’ve completed a Permaculture Design Course, an intro to permaculture course or you just want to know more about permaculture.

On Saturday there are over twenty different workshops to choose from so you’ll go home with many skills; from fruit tree pruning, making seed balls, wicking beds, crocheting, seed saving, building a composting toilet, preserving, growing industrial hemp and much, much more. If you have a skill you would like to share, you can hold a workshop too.

All meals are provided. On Saturday night we have a dinner and talk by our special guest speaker Professor Stuart B. Hill followed by a screening of the Chikukwa Project.

On Sunday Pip Magazine will be launching issue two followed by an in-depth workshop facilitation by Professor Hill helping our community work towards meaningful change.

$95 for the weekend, $60 for 12-17 y.o., kids are free.  All meals included. (donations for kids meals welcome).  For more information and registration visit permacon.scpa.org.au
