19–23 April 2020, Brisbane, QLD
Save the date! On Sunday 19th April 2020, the next APC will begin with a Permaculture Festival open to all at Northey Street City Farm in Brisbane. Then, for those who have completed a Permaculture Design Course (PDC), conference talks, workshops and more will be held from Monday to Thursday 20–23 April 2020 at Redland Bay South Moreton Bay (35 mins from Brisbane—accessible by public transport). Tours of Northern NSW and Southeast QLD will follow the convergence.
APCs are held every two years with a changing location around Australia or New Zealand.

APC is supported and run by Permaculture Australia.
SUSTAINABLE HOUSE DAY

A sustainable house or ‘green house’ is one that has been designed, built or renovated to be more environmentally friendly, cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in. Register your interest and you’ll be given a list of where the sustainable houses will be so you can check them out and talk directly to the owners. Last year, 33 000 people visited 226 homes, with thousands of dollars donated to charity.
