The 2012 UK Permaculture Convergence

The Convergnce comes to Wales!

350 Permaculture practitioners, teachers, project leaders and interested newcomers will come together to share knowledge, skills and practices, and meet each other at Coed Hills Rural Artspace in South Glamorgan this August for the 2012 Permaculture Convergence.


The Permaculture Association, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year, co-ordinates the biannual event for those who are interested in Permaculture, just starting out or have been practicing Permaculture for many years.

Over 80 workshops, presentations and practical demonstrations were on the schedule in 2010 and with eleven different ‘zones’ for this year, another amazing line-up is taking shape.

On the bill, Permaculture authors Aranya and Looby Macnamara will present ‘Systems and Patterns’ and ‘People and Permaculture’ respectively.

Permanent Publications’ Maddy Harland will speak about the business side of Permaculture in ‘Permaculture Outside the Box’ and meet practitioners Deano Martin of Wolds Woodland Farming Project, Hannah Thorogood (Regenerative Agriculture at the Inkpot, Lincolnshire) and Stefan Geyer who will answer “What is Permaculture?”

Furthermore, five people shall give their Diploma accreditation presentation – each outlining projects they have been working on - always inspiring to observe.

The three-day event begins at 3.30pm on Friday August 24th until 4pm Sunday 26th August (camping available). Entertainment includes a Ceilidh on the Friday night and a Saturday night Cabaret served up with a bar in the barn.
