N.Z. National Permaculture Hui 2015: Let’s Get GROWING!



NZ National Permaculture Hui 2015

3rd-6th April 2015 (Easter Weekend)


Moving On

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!

    The regeneration of New Zealand’s Urban, National Park and Seashore Wild Life and Bird Life would be an ideal topic for discussion at this National Permaculture Hui!

    Why would a certain political lobby group disguise their real intentions as to the insane utilisation of 1080, to completely destroy man’s hunting grounds and wipe out all wild animals in Aotearoa???

    To falsely claim that 1080 is necessary to control Opossums is a crime, when the ulterior motive is to actually deprive the manhood of New Zealand of ancient and primordial food gathering!

    I would have thought that the Tangata Whenua would have stood up strongly and vociferously for their traditional hunting rights!

    Having conducted a study of Urban Bird Life for over a year in South Canterbury and Otago, I am appalled to discover that the New Zealand Government has been duped into spending millions of taxpayer funds to poison our National Parks and inflict an ecological holocaust on Nature!

    Deer Me!
