facilitators and changemakers! 

This day is open to anyone with an interest in permaculture education - from those new to permaculture through to experienced educators and senior diploma tutors, education members, or non-members, apprentices - all are welcome, including those working on curriculum and education in related sustainability fields and regenerative agriculture.

This year PAB is 40! We have a lot to celebrate, and we will be taking a proactive approach to documenting and showcasing the wonderul work you do as consultants, designers and changemakers! 

This year we will shoot a promotional video for learning permaculture at the event, alongside multiple new and exciting areas of marketing news and strategy - all directed at supporting the reach of permaculture, and directly benefiting our education community. 

If you havent been to an education event for some time, or never before, NOW is a great time to come, gain from the new marketing focus, network, broaden your reach and learn from each other! 

Educators Gathering Programme


'Raising the Profile and Scaling up!' 


The programme is being designed by you, our educators -    with a mix of sessions led by educators and open space sessions where topics can be explored which come up on the day. 

Would you like to hold a conversation around a new course theme, innovation in teaching, reaching a particular audience or another topic you are passionate or curious about?

We will have an 'open space' session where people can propose topics on the day and explore them with others who are interested. This space can also be used for digesting, connecting with each other, walking, talking or resting. 

More information about the programme will follow... 



The event will formally begin at 9:30am. The formal sessions will finish at 6pm.

We encourage you to arrive the day before, with camping or dorm accommodation provided. 



The event will be at Lambourne End Outdoor Activity Centre, Essex. We will also offer attendance online so that as many international educators can join as possible, and tickets to follow. For in-person attendance, the Festival of Permaculture will begin the next morning after evening dinner and networking.
