Permaculture Ambassadors Conference – 21st April 2017

Apr 6, 2017

Permaculture Ambassadors Conference – promoting ways to create thriving communities.

The Permaculture Ambassadors Conference is an event organised by The Permaculture Association and is a chance to meet, share knowledge and good practice, and to network with people from across Britain. There is space for up to 90 participants to spend the day learning together.  The event will be held at The Impact Hub Birmingham, 58 Oxford Street, B5 5NR and is open to all.

Many people are creating a brighter future for their communities, caring for the earth and for each other, whilst living within nature’s limits. The conference intends to share these practical solutions with more people to enthuse and inspire them.

There will be an inclusivity fund to help with travel costs and The Permaculture Association believe that the benefits of connecting and learning should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation.

Recognising that what is affordable for some can be a financial stretch for others a tiered pricing structure is offerred. When booking, the price that feels appropriate can be chosen from the following selection: £22, £32, or £42.
