All Island Permaculture Gathering August 2012

category roscommon | environment | event notice author Thursday July 05, 2012 13:38author by Permaculture Gathering 2012 - Permaculture Irelandauthor email permaculturegathering at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

This year’s island-wide Permaculture Gathering will take place on an evolving Permaculture farm in the heart of Ireland this August 3rd – 6th. Building on the momentum from last years gathering in Wicklow, our goal again this year is to organize a weekend camp in a private location to support the growing number of permaculturalists in Ireland by providing an opportunity to network, celebrate & learn from one another.

Opportunities for learning how to work in non-hierarchal ways and share the surplus of knowledge will be key. This will not be a passive event laid on by some others, but rather an active participatory gathering where we create it together. Every participant has a role in making the event happen. Anybody can get involved and help out.

How will permaculture be used?

Permaculture design principals and methodology will be used throughout the organising of the gathering and the site design.

They can then submit a budget proposal for materials to the core team.
