Festival of Permaculture, National Convergence 2022

8-11 September at Hill End, Oxfordshire

2019 convergence back shot

We are back, in real life and in Oxfordshire for our national convergence. 

2022 is all about celebration, coming together, breaking bread and raising a glass. It has been a long time coming but we are so excited to embrace one another again (hugging is optional). The festival is a thriving hub of ideas, community and sharing experiences; we invite you to join us and take part. 

We'll be returning to the idyllic surroundings of Oxfordshire, at Hill End Centre where we last gathered back in 2019. Hill End is an eco-activity centre with camping, dormitories and lots of meeting spaces onsite.

We listened to feedback and there will be a focus on practical workshops where you can get your hands dirty and have fun ‘doing’ permaculture.
 
Here is a sneak peak at some of the line up:
  • Aranya, teacher and bestselling author of ‘Permaculture Design: A Step-by-step Guide’
  • A whole programme around agroforestry and forest gardening including a talk from Pippa Chapman
  • Visits to local projects including Marston Forest Garden, Oxford City Farm and Willowbrook Farm
  • LAND demonstration centres share their experience working in their local communities 
  • Permaculture diploma students exhibit their design work
  • Live link up with the Permaculture Association Wales convergence, sharing stories and speakers
