Come and celebrate International Permaculture Day with PermacultureWest!

There will be activities for all ages at the mini Festival, with the centre piece being The Giant Plant Swap! Please bring any excess seeds, tubers, cuttings, seedlings or produce to share. Find yourself something you need for your garden, or kitchen. Bring a picnic to celebrate in the Peace garden. Entry fee by gold coin donation.

After lunch hear about what food security looks like in urban communities and explore the role that permaculture plays, and could play in the future, at our Community Forum. The forum will be facilitated by Anthony James from the RegenNarration Podcast and will feature a guest panel (to be announced). Ticketed event.

In the morning join a garden tour of the Murdoch Community Garden. It will be an opportunity to reflect on the original permaculture plan, 25 years of the Environmental Technology Centre and 10 years of the community garden. As places are limited, free registration will be required.
