Upcoming Events

We have some amazing events coming up, with more being added in the near future including our Introduction to Permaculture 1-day course.

Permies at the Pub

Every 4th Thursday of the month from 6 pm. Most people have a meal, but that's not essential, you can just drop in for a drink and a chat. It's a great way to check us out without committing to anything 😉  As we need to book a table, please let us know via the Facebook reminder for the event, or email to if you'd like to attend.

We are meeting at 5:30pm on Tuesday 21 Nov 2023 at the Uniting building on the corner of Queen St and Dyte Parade, opposite the central Ballarat Community Garden.

After some drinks, food and music, the BPG committee and financial members will go into a meeting room to conduct the official AGM proceedings.

This will include the annual reports, election of office bearers, and presentation of life membership - a brand new initiative!

Non-members are able to stick around socialising while the AGM is completed.

The AGM should be complete by around 7pm, after which time we can continue socialising together.There's no better time to get to know our members and see what we've been up to this year.

We hope to see you there!
