There will be safety in numbers - so grab the family and friends and walking shoes and come along - there will be spot prizes, and a Push Play passport which if it has 4 stamps on it will go into a draw for a $250 voucher from Smiths Sports shoes
(so you can replace the ones you have worn out!)

Permaculture Hui 16 - 18 April

This is on in Raglan this coming weekend. There are still places available so if you haven't registered, you can still do so. Great way to escape Hamilton while a certain other event is on.

Come along to the 2010 Annual Permaculture Hui April 16 - 18 in beautiful Whaingaroa Raglan where the local community will share their successes and showcase many of their gems with Annual Hui participants all weekend long.

Meet up with other permaculturalists, ecological designers and change agents from around Aotearoa New Zealand and share the harvests, innovations and success stories of your bioregion and learn about what others are up to. Bring along surplus food from the garden, resources and project ideas to share with the permaculture whanau. This is a great opportunity to pool our resources and share our taonga!
As always there will be a mix of activities for everyone including a children's area, a film tent, open forums, site visits, and pre-planned advanced skills training workshops.
The open forums will allow time and space for discussions on various topics decided on by participants at the event. These sessions will be scheduled at the start of the Annual Hui.

Site visits have been scheduled to local permaculture properties in Raglan, ranging from small to commercial scale.
There will also be a wide range of skills training workshops. Some of the workshops that have been scheduled so far are: DIY composting toilets and urinals, How to Make Our Own Money, Permaculture in Schools, Introduction to Experiential Education, Tree Care and Restoring New Zealand’s Watersheds. There is still room in the schedule for more workshops. If you have a skill or presentation to share, we are eager to hear from you. It is a great opportunity for us to share knowledge within our community.
Breaking from tradition, this year PiNZ is requesting that EVERYONE attending the Annual Hui register in advance. Spaces are limited this year so register early. Go to the Permaculture in New Zealand website for registration details - http://www.permaculture.org.nz/ We want to ensure that we can accommodate everyone at the venue as well as ensure a quality and enjoyable weekend for all. Your cooperation is appreciated.

 Feel free to share this opportunity with your networks.
