Sad day for permaculturalists around the world with the passing of co-founder Bill Mollison. His ideas on permanent agriculture were the essence of what is now food security and sustainability.
His first work, although more an essay in book format, formed the core thinking from which thousands of ‘disciples’ would develop methods and techniques for creating an ecology for living.
We are all the richer for his contribution. Enjoy this video (produced circa 1989) of Bill explaining how Permaculture came about.
