Miracles In Permaculture with Bill Mollison

$1.99

Program Description

We hate to be reminded of the dangerous degradation of our air, water and soil quality because it is so widespread and seems so hopeless. But Mollison, one of the originators of permaculture, tells us how to make land and water healthy and supportive of human and countless other forms of life. He describes a sensible, sustainable community that is feeding itself abundantly and saving energy costs while improving its soil and water quality, and tells how he himself rejuvenated five acres of badly abused land to create the “food forest” he lives in:  “You could get lost in it, but you’d never starve!” Mollison illuminates the complex and marvelous interactions among trees and rain, soil, plants, animals and humans, as he tells us how to bring health and sanity back to land-use practices. (Hosted by Neil Harvey)

Bill Mollison is a researcher, author, scientist, teacher, naturalist and has been called the ‘father of permaculture’, an integrated system of design co-developed with David Holmgren that encompasses not only agriculture, horticulture, architecture and ecology, but also economic systems, land access strategies and legal systems for businesses and communities. He received the Right Livelihood Award in 1981 with Patrick van Rensburg. He is the author of Travels and Dreams (Tagari Publ., Australia 1996), Introduction to Permaculture (Tangari Publications revised 1997), and co-author of The Permaculture Way: Practical Steps to Create s Self-Sustaining World (Permanent Publications 2005), and  is executive director of the Permaculture Institute in Tyalgum, Australia.  To learn more about the work of Bill Mollison go to www.tagari.com.
