Date corrections and Updates

The Australasian Permaculture Convergence will be the central part of a week of Festival, Expo, Conference and Guided Tours of local areas.

These combined events will be during the week of 7th – 15th March.

The actual convergence will be from 9th with a welcoming Dinner and then through to the 12th when the Convergence part of the weeks activities will end.

There was some confusion on the actual dates of the event as the Website and Facebook page was displaying dates for the entire week.

We do invite you to come and attend the full weeks activities but please be aware if you are camping the official dates we can guarantee toilet and other facilities for camping are from the 9th to the 12th.


Alternative Accommodation…

We recognise camping may not be an option for some delegates attending so we have negotiated with local Accommodation facilities to offer special rates just for those attending APC12. Don’t forget to mention the special rates available to those attending the Australasian Permaculture Convergence…

Be sure to book early…


Post Convergence – Advanced Permaculture Design with Dan Palmer

Aimed at people with a Permaculture Design Certificate (from anywhere in the world), ChickenDanthis workshop will increase the effectiveness of Permaculture designers towards working at a professional level. Drawing on seven years of experience as a professional designer, Dan will take you on a detailed and hands-on journey through the design process he uses professionally, sharing concrete strategies, tools & insights you can use to lift your game. Whether you are interested in residential, school, community or rural property design, we’ll go through:

  • Pre-visit preparation
  • On site design process
  • Design completion and follow up
  • Learning and using design software
  • Design implementation management or referral

** This workshop is being run directly before our Permaculture Teacher Training course with Rosemary Morrrow (16th-21st March) in the same venue (valued at $750). For students who would like to complete both courses we’re offering a special deal of $950 for the two courses (savings of $120).

We’re running this course directly AFTER the 12th Australasian Permaculture Convergence which is also being held in Penguin. If you can, we wholeheartedly recommend you pop along to this as well, as you’ll get to meet some of the most skilled, successful, generous and wonderful permaculturalists on this side of the world!
