Permaculture Yarra Valley Events

PYV organises events between March and December (avoiding the fire season), with activities generally held on weekends, usually once a month. Events vary between educational workshops, visits to permaculture sites – including members’ properties within the Yarra Valley and excursions to renowned permaculture demonstration sites around Victoria. Social events during the year encompass a Winter Warmer event and a Christmas Breakup and naturally the AGM.
