About International Permaculture Day

sunflowersInternational Permaculture Day, on the first Sunday in May (or thereabouts), is a day of celebration and action for permaculture around the world. It is a day when visitors can see these range of our initiatives, ask questions and decide for themselves whether the permaculture design system has relevance to the challenges we face and to creating resilient communities.

Now in its 10th year, International Permaculture Day has grown rapidly from its roots as a local Australian initiative to a global day of permaculture celebrated in over 35 countries.

Why not experience permaculture on the ground with practitioners?
It is a chance to visit homes, gardens and farms, or go along to film screenings, workshops, permablitzes (garden makeovers) and much more.

Why not organise an event in your area? It is simple just complete the ‘Add and event‘ form.
