The World has Lost a Great Visionary


It is with heavy heart that we have learned of the passing of Bill Mollison, often referred to as the ‘Father of Permaculture’.  From Wikipedia…”Bruce Charles “Bill” Mollison (4 May 1928 – 24 September 2016) was an Australian researcher, author, scientist, teacher, and biologist. Considered to be the “father of Permaculture”…Permaculture is an integrated system of design which Mollison co-developed with David Holmgren, and it encompasses not only agriculture, horticulture, architecture, and ecology, but also economic systems, land access strategies, and legal systems for businesses and communities. In 1978, Mollison collaborated with Holmgren and they wrote a book called Permaculture One.  Mollison founded The Permaculture Institute in Tasmania, and created a training system to train others under the umbrella of Permaculture.  Mollison’s system of train the trainer has taught thousands of people how to grow food and be sustainable using the Permaculture method.”

Bill would have been the first to admit that death is as essential to the cycles of nature as that of birth. The seeds that he planted during his lifetime have taken root and are bearing fruits throughout the world. In addition to his global outreach, Bill Mollison left us with some very valuable resources:
