All-Ireland Permaculture Gathering 2013

We are delighted to have this year’s Permaculture Gathering just outside Galway city and the countdown is on – only 3 weeks left!! We still have quite a bit to do on site so we wanted to throw out an appeal to see if we could get a group of volunteers together this Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th August.



About the Permaculture Gathering:

A gathering in the spirit of the Permaculture ethics of
Earth Care, People Care, Fairshare.

A weekend of practical workshops & demos, discussion & debate, expertise & ideas, along with all the magic that happens in the spaces inbetween; music, dance, food, fire, craic, connection & more….!

We have an alcohol free ethos, There is camping onsite, we use compost toilets & collect rainwater. We’ll have a communal kitchen & a cafe stocked with local food.


PermacultureGathering2013The Permaculture Gathering is a self organizing event, where we create the content of the weekend together by sharing our passions. Everyone is a volunteer and everyone who comes participates. Perhaps you have a workshop, talk or demo to offer, maybe you’d like to host a discussion, share your project, or your inspiring dream…

Last year participants described the gathering as a space for “meeting old & new friends, creating positive solutions, inspiration, learning about permaculture and sustainable living, strengthening the network in Ireland, finding out about projects, finding encouragement & support, celebration & joy!”

In the past two years that the gathering’s been running we’ve experienced everything from alternative economies, to earth building, african drumming to agroforestry, basketry to biodeisel, wormeries to rocket stoves, plant identification, urban permaculture, household hints, creating co ops, & so so much more!

Collectively we take reponsibility for the safe & efficient running of the weekend, so on arrival you can join a ‘working group’ and dedicate a little time to keeping things on track in the kitchen, welcome & info area, toilets, etc.

This year we have found a home at the lovely, creative & welcoming Parvani Hall, near Claregalway, where we hope to bring energy, skills & enthusiasm to a great project. Parvani is easily accessible by car & bus. Directions & more info about the site can be found on the website

If you’d like to be involved in this years gathering please do get in touch! Email . We will be delighted to hear from you. You can also request to be added to our mailing list by contacting the above address.

We are currently developing this years site through some run up events where we help out with some essential jobs onsite & also learn a thing or two through some micro worshops & skillshares. We need all hands on deck for this & all are welcome to these free mini gatherings.

Further information to be added soon so keep an eye on this page!
