Honouring Bill Mollison

In memory of Bill Mollison, David helped his son Oliver plant dozens of trees at Oliver’s place, near Fryers Forest. They were mostly food producing and included carob and pistachio trees. #plantedforbill

Oliver also styled and snapped this photo of his father paying homage to Bill and the photo that David took of him on a plant and seed collecting trip in northern Tasmania in 1975.

If you haven’t already heard Charlie Mgee’s beautiful tribute to Bill, you can listen to it here:

Radio National’s Blueprint for Living had a segment called ‘Farewell to the father of the global permaculture movement’ devoted to Bill Mollison and featured David talking about Bill and more broadly about permaculture.
Samuel Alexander wrote a piece for The Conversation about Bill entitled ‘A revolution disguised as organic gardening’.
Declan Kennedy’s tribute, I am mourning my friend Bill Mollison is also well worth a read.
