Welcome

Permaculture in New Zealand's mission is to act as a national hub in promoting and empowering permaculture education, activism and advocacy in Aotearoa NZ.

Our website aims to help people interested in and practicing permaculture within Aotearoa to keep in touch and share information.

If you're new to the concept of permaculture and its strategies, the principles and ethics are a good starting point.

Permaculture Needs YOU!

Permaculture Needs You!!!

Permaculture in New Zealand is looking for a group of inspired, permaculture-minded, team players to put together our national hui for 2016. Having an annual hui is one of the key requests our membership made at Te Teko in 2010 so we are looking for support from a small group of members and/or others to make it happen next year. There’s a wiki with ideas about how to create the hui. It can be as simple as deciding a weekend, finding a venue and allowing the co-creative process to unfold.

Two People Living Off A 200sqm Garden! Plan Included!

Introduction

Bob and I (Kay) have just finished 12 months of eating only our own food, not buying anything from the supermarket at all except for salt (from health supplier) and a handful of organic imported spices. It was actually fairly easy and we have no intention of changing back to the supermarket, only going forward from here.

We have been on this site for 3 years and the soil was very poor pumice based soil to begin with.
