VEG Victorian Educators’ Group
The Victorian Educators’ Group is a group of Permaculture teachers who work in cooperation rather than competition. We share ideas and teaching strategies, course content, philosophy and sometimes projects.
An ongoing project of VEG is the updating of A Syllabus for Permaculture Design in Cool Temperate South Eastern Australia. This is a resource to help Permaculture Educators plan Permaculture Design Courses. It covers the whole PDC curriculum as required by The Permaculture Institute and includes additional material relevant to our local bio-region. Educators interested in using this resource are invited to contact us.

The Plant Group
The Plant Group focuses on all plants useful in a permaculture system, with a particular interest in plants which may be uncommon in our area, but are potentially useful. The Plant Group aims to support members who grow grow permaculture plants for their own use, to document plant information, and to run workshops, field days and plant swaps.
