Robyn Francis presents an inspiring case study of her village of Nimbin in Northern NSW Australia as an example of Permaculture working at a community level. The local bioregion boasts over 40 intentional communities and the village has been at the cutting edge of social experimentation and environmental innovation for over 30 years. Learn how she has worked with her community as a Permaculture consultant for eco-developments and local government, influencing state planning laws, facilitating participatory design, and establishing a Permaculture training centre and bioregional campus.

Award-winning international permaculture pioneer, designer, educator, presenter and innovator, Erda Institute’s principal tutor draws on over 25 years of permaculture work throughout Australia and overseas. Robyn was founding director Permaculture International Ltd (PIL) in 1987, editor of the Permaculture International Journal, designer and creator of Djanbung Gardens, Australia’s leading permaculture centre, and was member of the National Reference Group which developed the Accredited Permaculture Training™ (APT) for Permaulture International.

At this point, just showing up is fine!

To get to Inspiration Farm take exit 256A off North I-5. Turn right and go 6 miles N. on the Meridian St. Go right 1 mile on E. Laurel Rd. We're on the right. Watch for the yellow Gossamer Glass sign on the South side!

I am planning on attending and could give a few people a ride from Fairhaven. I just clicked the link to Inspiration Farm for registering, but couldn't navigate to a registration page. So two questions: Do we need to pre-register or just show up? And, are there directions to Inspiration Farm somewhere that I've missed? Thanks.

Hi Paul,

Glad you're planning to attend. Hopefully we'll find someone that's willing to help out with the transportation.

My wife and I are new to the area and would like to attend the 7pm-9pm My Eco-Neighborhood Presentation on Aug 13th. We no longer own a car and would need some transportation help to and from the WWU Sehome area or from the Cordata bus station. We can help with gas expense. If you think you can help us get there please email me at
