Working towards a diverse, resilient and thriving world grounded in care for the earth, each other and the future of all.

Now as the PA Patron, I see my role as more actively contributing my conceptual and historical perspectives within the movement to support Permaculture Australia’s various priorities and projects towards the vision of an Australia enlivened by permaculture ethics and design principles. As patron I will continue to highlight the lineage from and respect for Indigenous and traditional ways of being inherent in permaculture that can help all Australians come to terms with history and rekindle a shared connection to country.”

The Permaculture Calendar

Permaculture Principles (the business, PcP) is all about practicing the ethics and principles of permaculture. Supporting PA’s Permafund through profits from sales of the Permaculture Calendar is one of the ways in which PcP demonstrates the ethic of Fair Share. We must practice our values.
The vision for the calendar is of a collective process; to engage with the permaculture community and to illustrate practices and promote examples. The 2021 calendar was the first step in involving more people in the design, so the production too is part of the collective. Calendar originator David Arnold and his adult children, Felix and Grace, wrangled the text. The PcP team of Christine, Richard and Oliver collected and worked with images from the community and produced the artwork. And now we have Kat and Emma involved in the development of the 2022 edition.
In order to run a growing business like ours, we need to constantly evolve. The principles that are illustrated in the calendar are the design tools we use to adapt to changing needs. As support for Permafund and the calendar grow, we are expanding our reach to support other permaculture enterprises and projects. This multiplier effect will increase our collective impact to help create a positive future in tumultuous times.
