Australasian Permaculture Convergence 14 (APC14)


Call out for Permaculture Festival and the Australasian Permaculture Convergence

Page updated on March 1st

Call for volunteers for APC14

The Permaculture Convergences worldwide are organised by the people, for the people.
Indeed, permaculture is all about community spirit. Thus, volunteers are at the heart of these events to make them run! The APC14 team itself is 100% made of volunteers.
And because we care for the people, we want everybody to have a great experience at APC14!

Get involved in APC14 and help make an unforgettable event for all of us! Moreover, by joining our team and making this event happen, you will also help bring permaculture to more and more places, and reach more people!

Whether you are based in the region or abroad, whether you can spare a little bit of time or a lot more, there is surely something you can help us with!

The volunteer positions are unpaid, but we are working toward being able to rebate all or part of the volunteers  convergence ticket expenses. The amount of rebate will depend on the number of volunteers, amount of volunteer work time and the final budget for APC14. In the meantime, you will still need to purchase your convergence tickets.

Examples of volunteer roles…

Permaculture Festival – Sunday 15th Apr 2018. 

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Permaculture Festival 2018 is the first permaculture festival happening in the ACT area, and it will not be be the last! These are exciting times since we are bringing, for the first time, such a big permaculture event to the public.

We need volunteers for set-up and pack-down, welcome stall, parking marshals, photo/video (you need to have your own camera), cleaning, first-aid stall, children’s activities (Working With Vulnerable People card needed), AV and technical support, electricity, feedback survey, and we also need all-rounders.


We aim at welcoming several hundreds of people for the Convergence – so we need to be ready when they all arrive!

We need volunteers for the Sunday 15th set up.

During the Convergence – Monday 16th to Thursday 19th April 2018.

The convergence will happen at the Greenhills conference centre, close to Canberra, in a quiet space surrounded by nature. Therefore, we will guide attendees to the venue, provide them with meals and help them with their accommodation. We will make it easy for everybody to attend talks, workshops and various activities so that everyone can have a lot of interaction and a lot of fun!

We need volunteers for set-up and pack-down, welcome desk, talks (room set-up, AV and technical support, time keeper, speaker liaison), catering (food liaison, meal set-up and clean up), media coverage (photo/video), waste management (we are aiming for as little rubbish as possible!), and we also need all-rounders.
