Recently David Holmgren went up to the ACT and southeastern NSW to speak at several events. He had a good time everywhere he visited and with everyone he met on the road. Some of the new people he met on this recent northern sojourn were involved with what they call “non-nativist landcare” around the town […]
Why do you think you should go to Penguin, Tasmania in March next year? To see its famed “big penguin”, a three metre ferro cement construction built some forty years ago when the town celebrated it’s centenary? Nah, the reason you should be there is of similar vintage, but not quite. The reason all permaculture […]
The largest typhoon ever to reach land struck the Philippines on the 7th of November last year. Thousands of people died and tens of thousands lost their homes and livelihoods. The true cost of this mega-disaster will never be known because it was too big for the authorities to handle. Steve Cran is a sustainable […]
Just a friendly reminder, that the early bird deal will soon come to an end for the Holmgren designed PDC at the Rockly Ashram. If you are thinking about making a “life-changing, horizon expanding” experience, as described by a participant last year, make sure you save $200 by paying full fee by Dec 12 by […]
One of the ways to make sense of long distance traveling is to maximise the purposes of the trip.

So when […]
More than an agricultural technology, permaculture is a vision of the societies of tomorrow, ours, which will be confronted with the evolution of energy and climate systems. Permaculture is not only another way to garden: it is another way of thinking about and acting on the world, a global philosophical and concrete change. At the […]
What is going on in the world? What can we do about it, you wonder? Climate change, peak energy, and global finance seem to be the biggest worries of many people. Naturally so, because according to David Holmgren, they are the key elements deciding our world, and our future. How are these factors behaving now, […]
It’s the biggest hectare I have ever seen! Tatyana Temirbulatova’s Permacultured website It’s an awesome place to be! Jessie’s the Rabid Little Hippy What I didn’t expect was to be so taken with what permaculture is, and what it isn’t. Jacqui’s dusty country road, Everywhere you looked there was an abundance of food, even though […]
As I have been working alone in the garden over these last few days I have been thinking about Vries Gravestein as an elder of the Australian permaculture movement at the same time that the nation is reflecting on the passing of another big man, Gough Whitlam. While comparisons between the two might be trite, […]
Earlier this month we reported that David Holmgren’s seminal Permaculture: Principles and Pathways beyond sustainability is now available in French. Published by rue de l’echiquier, Permaculture sits very nicely with the very interesting and thought provoking titles in their « Initial(e)s DD » series. What is so special about the French edition by the way, is […]
