  1. Many of us around the World cannot attend physically. I suggest you make the lectures available via the internet after the Conference has taken Place. In that way high quality permaculture teaching is made available to the masses. The technique is there, eager permaculturists are waiting and many people still to be introduced.
    Kindly Erika, Sweden

    1. I agree I sincerely hope that this conference will be broadcast via the Internet. Yes, the technology does exist and should be utilized for our Brothers and Sisters involved and promote Permaculture worldwide.

  2. I second Erika’s great idea. Please record all the fabulous lectures & workshops and some how make them available , even at a cost. Too many fine minds in one place to not record for the future. All that experience and experiences to share.
    Thank You,

  3. Epic Line-Up. This is like a Permaculture Woodstock. Fancy them all doing a tour down under? Enjoy to anyone who is going.


  4. Would it be possible to buy a copy of the conference proceedings as a pdf file? Or as the person above suggests, could the sessions be filmed and released via yo tube?

    Cheers, Rowena

  5. Yes, yes,Yes,
    I too would love to come and see,
    But as I can’t raise the fee,
    Please put them all on pdf
    & if possible make it all available free
    thank yee, oh thank yee

  6. Hello All,
    We will be recording the conference in its entirety. It will be available after the fact via audio and video. So stay tuned. Thanks for the support. :)

  7. though i would give anything to be able to attend this and to be able to meet all the wonderful people, it is simply not affordable to be able to attend for us in india…will eagerly wait for the video of voices recorded…all the best for the great event!

    1. Because an event like this is expensive to put on. Nutiva sponsored some much cheaper tickets, there is a farmer and student discount, and the early bird price was lower. So there are/were ways to save.
