Auckland Permaculture Workshop’s mission is to increase the resilience and wealth of Auckland’s bioregion through research, design and education.
Typically people think of permaculture as a type of organic gardening – it is however, much more than that. Permaculture is a design philosophy and practice that draws from a range of disciplines – it is a solutions focused way of thinking, which is proving to be a viable, practical and empowering means of addressing contemporary environmental, social and economic issues.
APW see education as a key component in the development of a sustainable culture. We have developed a series of interrelated and comprehensive full day workshops that teach the foundation of the permaculture principles as well as practical hands-on skills. These workshops combined with a design project enable participants to obtain an internationally recognised qualification, the Permaculture Design Certificate.
APW workshops are for everyone interested in living sustainably, designing their own lives and empowering change in their communities.
