Save the date, and join us for the next installation in the hui series "making permaculture stronger!"
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.
Last weekend the new PiNZ Council had our first proper face to face meeting. The venue was the Ecomatters building in New Lyn, which was a great place to meet, with plenty of space, wifi, kitchen etc. They even have an outdoor pizza oven which we made good use of on Saturday night. Thanks to Guenther for organising such an excellent space for us.....
I’ll start off with some general comments before moving on to some of the specific projects we have had going on this year.
Apologies if this is old news but this is an incredible archive of permaculture writings. Even what looks like a complete scan of Bill Mollison's Permaculture Designers Manual
This is a great opportunity to experience life on a permaculture farm while 'nesting' over the long, wet winter.
Kaitiaki Farm is an exemplar permaculture farm with world-leading education programmes.

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.
