...as a volunteer

Learn more about permaculture, develop skills, and make a positive difference.

There are many ways to help.

Volunteering at events

Helping to run a permaculture event is a great way to get involved and meet people in the network.

There are many events happening all year round, some of which may need volunteer crew support, so to find out what is happening near you search in the Events listings, or read here for details of the next Permaculture Association national event.

Join a working group

The Permaculture Association is member-led; our working groups help guide us and organise our strategic work in different areas, including in Scotland, Wales, Education, Diploma and Policy. For more details about our working groups please follow the links or contact us.
