About Us

Permaculture hunter is a community group of people who are passionate about Permaculture. Our members are from all over the hunter valley and include a diverse range of people - from Permaculture farmers on large rural properties, right through to city-dwellers with balcony gardens. We are a not-for-profit organisation, run by a volunteer committee and we hold bi-monthly 'Permaculture Evenings' with fascinating guest speakers who talk about a broad range of permaculture topics.

What permaculture is about

The word 'Permaculture' is a combination of the words 'permanent' and 'agriculture' (or 'culture'). Permaculture is about using a systems-based, holistic approach to design productive and abundant agricultural ecosystems that protect and enhance the environment. It's clever design. It's about growing food by working /with nature, /not against it. It's also about fostering a sense of community, developing social and economic strength and resilience. Designing natures abundance!
Our community is all inclusive, regardless of skill or experience. All are welcome!

Our Committee

Our committee is completely volunteer run and consists of people with a range of permaculture experience. We are a diverse bunch, and our committee consists of an eclectic mix of artists, librarians, engineers, retirees and plant nerds. We have a broad range of skills and passions to bring to the table, and we are united by our love of nature. We have lots of fun planning permaculture events and new members and volunteers are always greatly appreciated!
