International Permaculture Day

Start: Sunday, May 5, 2013 - 1:01am Location: Worldwide

International Permaculture Day – is a day where a range of Permaculture events occur across Australia and around the globe. All activities are held on the first Sunday in May unless specified otherwise. 

Visit the website to see what is happening and even join in and upload your own event. You will see a list of events for Africa, Asia, Europe, north and south America ... and, well, everywhere!

We here at Permaculture magazine aim to carry on throughout the whole week, culminating in us taking part in the South Downs Green Fair on 12th May 2013.

The Permaculture Day concept is one that celebrates all things permaculture around the world on the same day or weekend, if possible. The events are hosted and funded by local permaculture people, groups or businesses with the benefits accruing to your local area whilst spreading the word about permaculture. By coordinating the events worldwide at the same time we want to present a unified face to the broader community and show just how innovative, productive and fun permaculture events and projects can be.

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments. It is about designing households and communities that are productive, sustaining and largely self reliant and have minimal impact on the environment. 

The Permaculture Day is evolving from an initiative in Australia that started in 2009. Events can consist of: workshops, talks, site tours, shows, films or even permablitzes. They can take place where ever you are, with whatever resources you have access to.

Let's get the permaculture word out all over the world and make it a day of positive action for people and planet.
