Presented by Special Guests PermaQueer all the way from Wangerriburras Country (QLD)

A workshop on how we can use Permaculture design & Queer theory to transform a pathway forward.

Everybody is welcome to listen, share and learn about Using Permaculture to Co-create with Diverse communities.

Permaculture and Queer Regenerative Design

Permaculture can be an incredible design methodology to help create equitable systems that care for community and the planet. Alternatively, it can be another tool of eco-colonialism if not implemented meaningfully or with the feedback from diverse communities.

Innovation and transformation has always been Queer and Queer theory is now helping steer permaculture into increasingly diverse and equitable outcomes. Permaculture has so much to offer in terms of tangible systems design support to Queer communities and Queer folks. Queering the pathways that have been laid before us has never been more important.

This is a 4 hr workshop with a lunch break in between (you can purchase yummy lunch and drinks on the day)


  • The role of ‘bravery’ in regenerating our landscape & relationships and new ways we can be brave.
  • Breakdown of the social conditioning we have all faced that led to the issues we experience today across Patriarchy | Cis-heteronormativity | Ableism
  • Frameworks we can use to understand and combat challenges  across Systems thinking
    • Trauma informed design
    • Culturally competent design
    • Resilient community design
  • The basics of Queer Theory & Permaculture and their role in this regeneration
  • How we can all use the above to regenerate our world
