Paramaethu Cymru/Permaculture Wales
The emerging Permaculture Wales (Paramaethu Cymru) has been moving ahead with plans for a Welsh LAND project, and an initial survey has yielded a good crop of potential LAND sites and LAND Learner projects in Wales. The Working Group, which has been informally constituted since the launch of Permaculture Wales in 2011, aims to introduce more formal governance to reflect the developing status of the new body, which will, like Permaculture Scotland, still be part of Permaculture Association Britain, but have some autonomy.
A Facebook page now exists to facilitate networking and dialogue in Wales: see
The Working Group hopes to have an event organised for September, probably in Mid Wales, which can be a mini Convergence to keep momentum going and enable more participation from people across Wales. A new dedicated and accessible page for the Permaculture Association website will also enable people in Wales to find information for their region more easily.
