Event Description

Please join us for the 2018 International Permaculture Day in Santa Barbara, CA.

Sunday 6 May — 2-5pm
South Coast Watershed Resource Center
2981 Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93109, at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park (also known as Hendry’s Beach)

We will celebrate by sharing our recent experiences at the International Permaculture Conference & Convergence (IPC) in India, what could be more appropriate?

Over 1000 participants from more than 60 countries attended.   Once again we had a chance to experience another culture in a way seldom experienced with ordinary tourist travel.   We will give a short talk, show an IPC India video, with time for questions, then go outdoors to picnic on the lawn with Indian food appetizers.

Our hosts for  IPC India, Padma & Narsanna Koppula of Aranya Agricultural Alternatives, did a magnificent job bringing attendees & speakers from all parts of India, including women farmers, who were kind of rock stars at the event!   Women as Agents of Change, a subtheme for the IPC, accomplished with the women farmers and the dedication of Aranya Agriculture Alternative, their mission for over 20 years.   Our heroes, a team of volunteers came from around the world to help with IPC India, some staying for an entire year.

Learn about the grassroots permaculture global community crowdfund that helped raise $10,000 for attendees that wouldn’t have been able to come otherwise, organized by the Friends of the International Permaculture Convergences (FIPC).

This IPC event had special meaning, as it was the 30th Anniversary of Permaculture coming to India with Bill Mollison & Robyn Francis in 1987.

We will also take an opportunity to talk briefly about the next IPC in Argentina in 2020, at a gorgeous site, near a UNESCO Heritage National Park with enormous waterfalls.

This will be both an indoor & outdoor event at the South Coast Watershed Center at the Arroyo Burro County Park (Hendry’s), on Sunday, May 6, from 2-5pm, no reservation needed.  Bring your brown bag lunch or favorite Indian potluck dish/appetizers for an informal picnic outdoors.  Children welcome!
