Western Australia is a big place, and even Perth is fairly spread out, so Local Permaculture Groups give people greater opportunity to share experiences, celebrate achievements (and share gluts) as well as overcome challenges.
Belonging to a local group can also provide inspiration and motivation, hands on practical help, opportunity to share equipment or swap seeds and cuttings. Lastly and maybe of greatest value, local groups can provide a sense of comradeship and connectedness.
Join a group in your area!
To the left is a list of the current Permaculture Local Groups.

The most significant benefit in being a local PermacultureWest group is to be covered by our public liability policy. Public Liability coverage are requested of groups by events managers when you want/need public stalls or workshops.
For you reference PW's current 2016 public liability insurance document can be requested. You need to inform us you would like to use the liability policy, the nature of your event and the names of our financial members in your group.
