‘Imagineering’ the Permaculture Australia organisation
Fri 26 – Sun 28 April
Location: Bondi, Sydney
You are invited to participate in a collective visioning to take Permaculture Australia to the next level and into a working reality. This gathering of minds will build on the previous processes and discussions (APC9, APC10, the 2011 survey) to clarify PA’s purpose, its functions, and to create a strategic plan, aroadmap and working groups to get us there. Other critical outcomes will include clarifying memberships and working relationships between local/state permaculture groups and PA.
We welcome a broad participation from permaculture groups and individuals. Contributions can also be received via emails to the PA website. To be kept informed, email email@example.com
