Global PermaYouth Festival – September
[pr]activism discussions • visioning • music • poetry • art • film • garden tour
Join us in this new series of free online events especially for youth into permaculture.
Each month we’ll bring together great speakers, spark discussion, share music and art, take tours of youth gardens around the world, screen a short permaculture film, and see what emerges.
A huge thanks to David Holmgren (co-originator of permaculture), Brenna Quinlan (permaculture artist/activist) and Charlie McGee (permaculture musician/educator) for being our special guests this month.

David Holmgren is the co-originator of the permaculture concept following publication of Permaculture One, co-authored with Bill Mollison in 1978. David is globally recognised as a leading ecological thinker, teacher, writer and speaker promoting permaculture as a realistic, attractive and powerful alternative to dependent consumerism. His most recent book, RetroSuburbia: The Downshifter’s Guide to a Resilient Future, shows how Australians can downshift and retrofit their homes, gardens, communities and, above all, themselves to be more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future.
Brenna Quinlan is an illustrator and educator who strives to make the world a better place through her art and her actions. For the past four years she has lived a low-impact lifestyle at Melliodora, a permaculture demonstration site in Central Victoria, Australia. There they grow food, milk goats, build soil, engage with community and regenerate the land around them.
Charlie McGee is the talented permaculture musician, TEDx speaker, educator, and activist. Check out this clip he made specially for Permayouth, and also a recent collaboration he and Brenna made ‘Climate Movement’.
Both Charlie and Brenna are Permaculture ambassadors sharing another way forward through their art and music. They live together at Melliodora, the home of David Holmgren and his partner Su Dennett. What a household!!!
