Opportunities galore with the Permaculture Association in the UK!

Web volunteers needed

We have a small team of volunteers in Wales who help to manage the Paramaethu website: www.wales.permaculture.org.uk

If you be able to spare an hour or two every month to help with this task we would be grateful for any assistance uploading news, pictures, projects and events.

Ability with written Welsh would be a distinct advantage.

Some experience of web layout would be useful – the site uses a content management system so is fairly straightforward.

Call for artists and writers

We’re looking for talented illustrators and writers for inclusion in our long-format membership journal, Permaculture Works, coming out this summer. This is our new flagship Permaculture Association member’s print publication and features interviews, in-depth design features, technical and practical articles and personal reflective pieces on our lives in permaculture.

Green Scythe Fair: Help run the Permaculture Association Stall

The Permaculture Association plans to run a stall at the Green Scythe Fair in South Somerset on Sunday June 9th 2019.

We will be promoting membership of the Association, our current work and our national convergence being held in September of this year.

We're looking for two volunteers with permaculture experience - ideally signed up Permaculture Ambassadors - to help staff the stall.

The Association can provide the required promotional materials including banners, fliers and tablets. 

The Association will cover your travel to the event and entry tickets.

Down to earth examples that others can replicate

A question for Diploma students/teachers: Do you have any examples of how you have applied permaculture/the principles to elements of your own life? We have one or two examples coming up in future issues of Permaculture Magazine and would like to be able to tell more stories in the aim of showing what permaculture does and inspiring more people to dip their toes in and take a closer look, sign-up for courses? It could literally be anything, big or small.

Website testers wanted

This is a call out for support testing our website. No experience required!

We want to improve our accessibility, usability and navigability and would really appreciate building up a team of volunteers who can give us some feedback.

Testing can be performed at any adhoc times and we can send instructions and explanation. We do not anticipate it to take longer than half an hour in the first instance.

If you are able to help, please get in touch with Nicola Bell below

National Permaculture Convergence media team

You'll have heard about the national permaculture convergence by now.

We're forming a team of people to capture the top notch content across the event. Think 'catch and store energy' - the energy is the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm of convergence participants. We'd like to create resources to share over the coming months, as part of our #WeLoveLiving campaign.

LAND Development Task Group - Volunteers wanted! (Low time commitment)

The group is being formed "TO DEVELOP A PROCESS WHICH ALLOWS NON-PDC HOLDERS TO APPLY FOR LAND CENTRE STATUS." We are looking for people who can genuinely commit to the process, but this will not necessarily take too much time; it will involve an online meeting every 2-3 weeks of up to 2 hours, plus any work you are actioned in between meetings.
