Your Membership Provides

This year PermacultureWest will be making 50% of your membership fee available to your local group to help fund activities during the year. So please find and nominate your local peers OR let's start a new group in your area (we only need 10 people). All the local groups can be found here: http://permaculturewest.org.au/community/local-groups

Just a reminder of what we are here for and why you need to renew:

PermacultureWest is the state support group for a decentralised movement of local permaculture groups. We encourage local groups to cooperate and help them to learn self-organising skills. Our intent is to build local and regional resilience through permaculture promotion, design and doings.”

Why pay $30 (if in paid work) or $10 (if otherwise employed)  -[for the full year,  $15 or $5  from January on]?

Apart from getting that warm glow of being part of PermacultureWest

  • PermacultureWest is run by volunteers and no outside funding, we are independent and represent you, so we all chip in to make that work. We would love any volunteer capacity or skills you have to offer.
  • If you are a regular member of a local group, half of your fees will go to that group for their own use. You (and other nominated attending members of your family) will be covered by PermacultureWest insurance at you local groups events and similarly your local groups events will be covered by PermacultureWest as all the regulars will be insured.
  • We can spread the permie word further via our website, facebook presence and with stalls at relevant events – this means signage, handouts, props, marquee and a lot more that jams in an ageing PW trailer.
  •  By joining PW, we can see where there are a number of members in an area that doesn’t yet have a local group, and help get new groups going
  • The Australasian Permaculture Convergence #13 hosted here in Perth in October 2016 – see why it’s called APC13 for short? Being held locally means that lots more of us will be able to afford to access some really exciting and interesting stuff, do some serious networking, and have a generally great time with a crowd of like-minded folk.  PW is underwriting the upfront costs, which should be recouped by the end of the week long event.

Membership FAQ-

Membership is available to individuals/families not to corporations or businesses. One membership fee covers the whole family, and partners residing at the same location as nominated on the form and signing attendance sheets etc.

Additional donations are welcome, but not tax deductable.

Online registration is preferred. NOTE: All correspondence, newsletters and membership activities will be exclusively online so you will need an email address or use public internet services. Try your library.

Small local businesses that would appeal to our membership are encouraged to contact us and if appropriate will be listed/supported on our Perth permie businesses listing.
