Opportunities galore with the Permaculture Association in the UK!

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.
