#EUPC21 will celebrate the work of permaculture across Europe. We will learn together, make new connections, and grow the network that is tackling some of the biggest challenges of our time. Our ten day programme has something for every permaculture practitioner from how to grow your garden to how to transform your city, and whether you can attend one session, or all ten, you are very welcome to join us this October. We have sessions to suit complete beginners and the most experienced designers too, so tell your colleagues and bring your friends.
We’re now delighted to make our first announcement of speakers and projects from across Europe!. Contributors will be taking part via a mix of live interactive broadcasts and pre-recorded sections.
