AUSTRALIAN PERMACULTURE CONVERGENCE
15 – 19 April 2018
The Australian Permaculture Convergence (APC14) kicks off with the ACT Permaculture Festival at Canberra City Farm on the Sunday, followed by four days of connecting and learning at ACT’s Greenhills Centre. Tours, workshops and courses will also be held across South East NSW.
A feature of the program is locally sourced, ethically raised food and drinks, with the organisers working with local farmers to achieve this. And as APC14 is being held during the school holidays, a children’s program is being planned.
This is an opportunity for everyone to share their permaculture journeys, research and ideas, and have fruitful discussions about the future directions of permaculture in the world. You can register now at www.apc14.permacultureaustralia.org.au.
