Australian Permaculture Convergence (APC)

We are thrilled to announce that South Australia has been successful in their bid to host the 2023 Australasian Permaculture Convergence, with support from Permaculture South Australia.

The vision for the 2023 APC is to run a fun, socially responsible, educational and sustainable event with the theme Toolkit for life: building a resilient future.

Australian Permaculture Convergences (APCs) happen every 2 years, usually in the Autumn. all permaculture practitioners and those interested in regenerative development are welcome to attend.

Attendees typically come from all over Australia, New Zealand and south-east Asia.  They are an opportunity for everyone to share their permaculture journey, their research into resilient and productive systems, and have fruitful discussions about the future directions of permaculture in the world.

They are a chance to showcase best practice in sustainable living and demonstrate how permaculture can bring about positive changes in people’s lives, the environment and offer solutions to the inevitable changes that are taking place in the world right now.

The location of APCs moves around Australia and has been in New Zealand too.
