9-11 March 2013
Taranaki is hosting this year’s national Permaculture Hui, and we’ve picked the March date so you can stay on after the hui to take in some of the post events, check out our beautiful region, and finish your week at WOMAD which is held in the
stunning setting of Pukekura Park (www. taft.co.nz/womad).
The venue is Vertical Horizon, an outdoor adventure centre next to
the Manganui River and beautiful Everett Park Scenic Reserve. It is a 5 minute drive from Inglewood and 20 minutes from New Plymouth.
Accommodation includes cabins (limited), dormitories, marae-style, and BYO camping, with a maximum capacity of 250 people. There are other accommodation options nearby.
The theme of the Hui is “Upskilling", with an emphasis on practical workshops. There will be a wide range of talks and activities, including a strong matauranga Maori presence. We aim to
appeal to both the novice and the seasoned permaculture practitioner. There will also be lots of connecting with people, networking, and having
A kids' zone with organized activities, a marketplace where you can buy & sell cool stuff, and the all important coffee cart and hang out zone will be available.
There will be a tour of local permaculture sites, the perennial “open mic” night, and lots of great local food to eat.
We really need you to register early this year. To help you out, we are offering a range of fee options: an early bird, a normal registration,
and a late registration.
