Story by Ross Mars, convenor of APC13

And now you can follow us as we invent the thirteenth Australasian Permaculture Convergence — APC13 in Perth, Western Australia.

We're going to add new information as it becomes available, including how to register to attend this event that will bring together permaculture practitioners from across the country.

You can already apply to register a workshop and we'll soon be posting info on courses and tours.

So… what are you waiting for? Click… read… think… plan — and we'll see you in 2016.

Visit APC13's new website

Update 23 December 2015...

You can now register and subscribe to the APC13 News and Updates. At least subscribe then you can be sent relevant info as it comes to hand. Please also join up on our facebook group, as we intend to post regular info about the program of events.

While you can register you can’t finish by paying for things such as the convergence, tours and courses. We are still sorting out the payment gateway and hope to resolve soon.

The website now has some info about the four different tours on offer, as well as the various courses before and after. We are not offering a PDC beforehand, as part of the formal APC13 program, and would encourage everyone to attend a local one in their own state or region. However, Greg Knibbs is organising one just before, in case overseas visitors need to do PDC.

You can now send in your abstracts should you wish to present. The guidelines and deadlines are listed on website.

We are looking at presenters and workshops for the public open day on Sunday (The Expo). If you have suggestions or can run a hands-on workshop please let us know.

There is an early-bird registration (end June). If anyone has words of inspiration please send them along to me to add to the fantastic statements already on website.

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Xmas and New Year.
