NZ National Permaculture Hui 2015
3rd-6th April 2015 (Easter Weekend)
Basic Regeneration with Permaculture
This year we’re bringing the Hui back to it’s roots with a 4 day immerse experience.
The Hui’s focus is Moving On, set to a timely backdrop of blossoming regeneration in the Garden City of Christchurch, Aotearoa. This year we’re incorporating Gift Culture and Open Space Technology (OCT) along with the usual PiNZ AGM.
All ages and levels of experience welcome.
We start with a Welcome Day on…Friday 3rd April –
Creating space, Arrivals & Introductions.
Workshops & Meetings.
Potluck Evening Meal.
Then we will take a day each to explore the 3 Permaculture Ethics…
Saturday – Earth Care – Kaitiakitanga
Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply.
Earth care encompasses care of the soil, care of all living systems, concepts like Gaia….
Sunday – People Care – Whanaungatanga
Provision for people to access the resources necessary for their existence.
People Care starts with the self – if you don’t take care of yourself you can’t care for anyone else! From the self, People Care spreads out to kin and community…
Monday – Fair Share – Manaakitanga
This is sometimes called “Surplus Share” or “Share our Resources”.
By governing our own needs, we can set resources aside to further our ethics.
Set limits to consumption, growth and population.
We’ll explore how to harness the ethics and principles of permaculture in all areas of our lives to move us towards Sustainability, Regeneration & Abundance by using a blend of Presentations, Talks, Open Circles and OST.
Plus Music, Movies and Stories to entertain us in the evenings.
And plenty of time for sharing, connecting and exploring all things permaculture & beyond!
Fresh local organic Food & Drink provided. Though, this year there is no accommodation at the Hui site. After careful consideration, Central New Brighton School Hall was chosen to host. This has kept the ticket prices as low as possible, and the hui easily accessible and open to more people. Watch this space for information on lift shares, accommodation & billeting options.
Planning the 2015 Hui has been a great adventure so far…. We invite you to join us for a long weekend of Learning, Sharing & Dancing!
