The Permaculture Association is a British education and research charity that promotes the theory and practice of permaculture in the UK and beyond. It was a partner in the Local Food consortium[1] of the Big Lottery Fund's Changing Spaces programme.[2] The Association will play host to the International Permaculture Convergence (IPC), London 2015.

The charity is based at offices in Leeds, England but connects a diverse network of projects across the country, with over 1400 members and over 100 demonstration LAND sites. There are national sub-networks in Scotland and Wales (Paramaethu Cymru).

According to its website, the Association offers its members a range of services including a quarterly newsletter, various discounts for events, books and services, opportunities to network, promotion and support of projects and a telephone helpline.[4] It also certifies Permaculture Design Courses in the UK and runs a diploma programme[5]

The Association organises a biennial national gathering of members, known as a 'convergence'.[6]
