Pip Magazine is your guide to living the good life. Pip is filled with ideas, information and  inspiration to live in harmony with the planet.

With articles on growing your own food, natural building, keeping bees, backyard chooks, fermenting, design, natural parenting and much more. Pip has profiles on people, projects, gardens, farms, houses and businesses. There are ‘how to’ guides, recipes, reviews, a directory and a kid’s section.

Pip is taking permaculture to the people. Artistically designed with beautiful photos and interesting content, Pip presents permaculture in an easy to understand accessible way.  In only a few years, Pip has grown a world-wide following of permies and people who care about the planet.

Pip Magazine is a thing of beauty. Printed on matt FSC certified paper with vegetable inks, each edition of Pip is something to treasure and after reading cover to cover, keep on your shelf and refer to. It is also available across all digital platforms.

NOTES ABOUT MEMBERSHIP CHANGES

PA recently made a number of changes to its membership options.

  1. The old Ordinary and Associate membership options have merged to become Ordinary Membership:

Ordinary members don’t need a permaculture qualification to join up – anyone with an interest in permaculture is most welcome! Ordinary members can still vote at PA AGMs. Ordinary members are eligible for an increasing range of member discounts from ethical businesses and permaculture providers.

  1. Professional Membership is for individuals who operate a permaculture related enterprise - examples include sole traders or partnerships:

Professional members need a PDC or APT qualification at level three or higher. Professional members can advertise their business and post courses and events on the PA website and Facebook Group at no cost. The PA website has a reach of over 11,000 visitors/month and the Group has over 10,000 members. One nominated person can vote at PA AGMs. Professional members are also eligible for an increasing range of member discounts from ethical businesses and permaculture providers.

  1. Organisation Membership is for incorporated entities such as companies, associations, and cooperatives who have a primary objective relating to Permaculture activities and support services:

Organisation members can list their organisation and post courses and events on the PA website and Facebook Group at no cost. The PA website has a reach of over 11,000 visitors/month and the Group has over 10,000 members. One nominated person can vote at PA AGMs on behalf of the organisation. Organisation members are eligible for an increasing range of member discounts from ethical businesses and permaculture providers.

Pip magazine

Pip magazine is the place for news on permaculture in Australia, showcasing people and projects around Australia and internationally. There are three editions of this beautiful magazine each year.

To give members the choice, PA will no longer provide Pip magazine as standard with any membership category. Instead, PA is pleased to offer a heavily discounted subscription to members for only an additional $15 per year. That’s a saving of over 60% on the usual price of Pip.
