Permaculture in New Zealand 2014 National Hui

Permaculture in New Zealand 2014 National Hui
Heal, Connect, Protect - more than just gardening

Friday 25 – Sunday 27 April 2014
Venue: Tapu Te Ranga Marae, 44 Rhine St, Island Bay, Wellington

Permaculture designers from all over the country are coming together in Wellington on the last weekend of April. This is an excellent opportunity for the wider public to come and learn with experienced members of the national permaculture organisation.

In a nutshell, permaculture is a design system that mimics natural ecosystems. Ideally, everything in the design, from humans to plants to energy systems and soil life, supports everything else and all wastes are used as resources. Strategies and techniques, for example solar energy harvesting (strategy) through water heating or photovoltaics (techniques), are applied according to the needs of a specific place and group of people. The ethics of permaculture encompass caring for the earth; caring for people; and using all surpluses to provide both for the natural ecosystems and for the people.

The hui is hosted by Tapu Te Ranga marae, rich in history and built by community for community. We are privileged to work with and alongside the whanau at Tapu Te Ranga marae.

At PiNZ annual events, we co-create a sustainable future through interactions, conversations, presentations and workshops while being nourished by music and mindfully-prepared food. They are open to everyone.

Keynote speakers this year are Jessica Hutchings and Tina Ngata on Reconnection, and Kay and Bob Baxter who founded and now run Koanga Institute.

Examples of other workshops and presentations:
Soil building techniques
Timebank
Own Your Own Home: Mortgage Free
Natural burials

Bees in the city

Limited spaces available! Registrations are now open at: www.permaculturehui2014.org.nz
