This year’s International Permaculture Day takes place on Sunday 2nd May 2021 (‘or thereabouts’). It is a day of celebration and for showcasing the work of permaculturists globally.
It is 24 hours of open homes, gardens and farms, films, community gardens, educational workshops, permablitzes and much more. It’s an opportunity to experience permaculture and meet its practitioners.
