The day after the International Permaculture Conference
finished there was a Permaculture
Research meeting. There was around 80
guests, people interested or
involved in research.

Chris Warburton,the  Permaculture Association Britain research
coordinator, guided the session.

Many interesting research groups came out of it, but one of the most promising ones, is a perennial polyculture and forest garden world research project. This group have met already 4 times since its creation and it arranged a workshop during the convergence to get more forest garden interested people to participate. Now there is a core group of approximately 10 people and an extended network of more than 60 people around the world.

The group will work on developing a feasible project to gather
worldwide information on polycultures, to help show the academia the value of these growing methods as well as to expand the tricks and techniques among the world permaculture community.

Begivenheden bragte vidensdeling om permakulturprojekter og -initiativer fra hele verden, og skabte samhørighed og udarbejdelse af fælles visioner, som i de kommende to år – indtil næste IPC finder sted i Indien 2017, vil blive præsenteret og lanceret på såvel individuel og lokal, som global skala.
