IT HAPPENS every second year, the Australasian Permaculture Convergence, when practitioners of the permaculture design system gather to talk, see and do.
The permaculture clan is far-flung, from Far North Queensland, down through Brisbane, Northern NSW, Sydney, the NSW South Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and all the way over to Perth, Western Australia. And that's not to mention those west of the ranges in inland Australia.
Permaculture is a design system for creating resilient communities. I like to think of it as a platform of ethics, principles and characteristics upon which its practitioners build useful applications. These might be in food production and distribution systems, energy and water efficient building, community development, community education, international development, journalism and publishing and more.
