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.

Chair report to AGM April 2016

Blessings to one and all.

I have to start by saying that it has been a hard year for council. We ended up with 5 members and this was just not enough people to cover all our responsibilities very effectively. In addition a number of council members had personal issues disrupting their lives, such as the multiple deaths of family members and friends, house moving etc. This mean that we were stretched pretty thin. Nevertheless we managed to get some important things done.

Shelterbelts can be juicy!

Here is GreenBridge's latest monthly article for our local newspaper...

Single row, single species, trimmed shelterbelts have their place. But by thinking outside the square, we can achieve great shelter while gaining lots of other benefits too…. writes Kama Burwell.

The opportunities with shelterbelts are exciting. We can design shelterbelts so they also provide bee fodder, bird & insect habitat, rongoa/medicine, fruit, nuts, stakes, fibre for weaving, fruit tree pollination, firewood, chook food, nitrogen & phosphate fixing, animal fodder, mulch, and more.

Web Team Coordinator - End of Contract Report

I have been involved in discussions about improving the PiNZ website at permaculture.org.nz since about 2009, when I set up the Aotearoa Permaculture Network project on CoActivate.org to provide email lists for bioregional networks, intending to supplement the forum and events calendar offered by the existing website. I became more actively involved in 2012 when I joined the PiNZ Council.
