The second annual All Ireland Permaculture Gathering will be held at Strokestown, County Roscommon over the August Bank Holiday weekend, 3-6 August.
This year’s island-wide Permaculture Gathering will take place on an evolving Permaculture farm in the heart of Ireland this August 3rd – 6th.
Building on the momentum from last years gathering in Wicklow, our goal again this year is to organize a weekend camp in a private location to support the growing number of permaculturalists in Ireland by providing an opportunity to network, celebrate & learn fro mone another. We also hope that preparation for the event & the weekend itself could bring energy, vision, experience, skills & time to help develop the farm project in permaculture related ways.
Opportunities for learning how to work in non-hierarchal ways and share the surplus of knowledge will be key. This will not be a passive event laid on by some others, but rather an active participatory gathering where we create it together. Every participant has a role in making the event happen. Anybody can get involved and help out.
If you suggest something the lightly answer will be “thats a great idea, go right ahead and do it or organize it.” The only criteria is that things fit into the Permaculture Ethics and Principals (e.g. earth care, people care, fair share, -produce no waste, capture and store energy etc).
Cost of attendance will be the same for everyone as we will all be volunteers and kept affordable to ensure ease of access.
