Permaculture people needed for Extinction Rebellion march

Extinction Rebellion are taking to the streets again in October. They want to set up a permaculture area, to share solutions to the climate crisis, at Lambeth Bridge. Can you help?

During the upcoming Rebellion in October, we will have one site (Lambeth Bridge) that will be focused on food security and sustainable solutions. This is where we would love input from the permaculture community. From the 7th October, we plan to hold this space in a way that is also educational and inspiring, and this will be centred in the 'solutions zone'. In this space we would like to have a 'permaculture bioregion' and host introductions, talks and workshops, to emphasise the importance of permaculture in these times. This may look similar to permaculture zones at festivals, and will include a space for workshops, connecting, networking and learning. If you would like to help in any way, please contact us: [email protected]

Help needed:

1) Solution zone workshops and sessions - the session(s) can be as long or short as you wish, on any topic related to permaculture and sustainable food systems. Please contact if you can offer a workshop any time between 7-12th October.

2) Space building - creating a permaculture zone, in the food solutions area. This can be as creative as you wish, bringing life and permaculture design to the space. We are looking for a point person to co-ordinate this space. Contact [email protected] 

3) Permaculture zone volunteer - spend an hour (or a few) in the permaculture info space, handing out resources, talking to people about permaculture and food solutions.

4) Food security mass action, Tues 15th October - various help and support needed! - more info here: 

Please respond if you would like to be involved in the Permaculture XR group, including your email, number, if/when you will be in London and what you would like to help with.

We need a movement of movements, and we are excited to bring together the natural allies of permaculture and extinction rebellion, in mutual support. The recent momentum in the environmental movement is demonstrating how relevant permaculture is in these times and how much we need solutions. We wish for this to be an integral part of the October Rebellion, and we need your help create it.

Please forward this to your permaculture networks, or related groups that would be interested in helping to make this a beautiful peaceful rebellion of love for our planet, in this desperate time.

Get in touch with Arthur for more information, or if you are able to help bring permaculture to the rebellion! [email protected]
