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.

Our journey to sustainability

Over the years my wife and I worked at our jobs and we were leading a generic, yet pleasant New Zealander life, until recently when she was laid off and decided to try her luck in homesteading and gardening, since we've got a nice piece of land. The land itself stood unused for years and she felt that it was time to put the dirt to good use. From time to time I'd hear about permaculture and self sufficient farms, never really grasping the idea that one day I myself might work on one or to be more precise live on one.
