Australasian Permaculture Convergence 2020

Celebrating Nature’s Abundance

Monday 20 April to Thursday 23 April 2020

at Camp Kindilan, Redland Bay, Queensland.

The 2020 Australasian Permaculture Convergence is a biennial gathering of permaculture people from around the country and the Asia Pacific region. All people with an interest in permaculture and regenerative development are invited to join us for 4 days of workshops, hands-on activities, and discussions on how we can both celebrate and support nature’s abundance.

The Quandamooka First Nations people are the traditional custodians of North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) and the Southern Moreton Bay region including  Redland Bay.  We pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. For more information on their activities visit their website Quandamooka   Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation.

The Convergence is being organised by Northey Street City Farm on behalf of Permaculture Australia.

The program will include talks and workshops covering topics relevant to the three ethics of Permaculture, which are Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. We feel it is important to explore the bigger picture of what true sustainability entails. Earth Care is obviously essential, however without People Care and nurturing healthy, sustainable relating, the task of coming together and working as a community can be greatly hindered. Finally, if attention and conscious intention isn’t given to the economic sustainability of communities, and the distribution of resources isn’t managed equitably, then  communities may struggle to be truly sustainable in the long term.

Keynote speakers confirmed so far include Starhawk and Robyn Francis.
