David Holmgren

david holmgrenCo-originator of the concept of permaculture, David will be presenting during the first part of the course. This opportunity to learn with one of the planet’s purest exponents and philosophers of permaculture provides you with a chance to update values and techniques or start your permaculture career at the cutting edge.

In 2003 David published 'Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability', a book which is the first significant development on the permaculture concept since Bill Mollison’s 'Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual' which was published in 1988. David’s teaching expounds permaculture for this millenium, freed of the necessity to justify some of the now publicly accepted environmental concepts which occupied so much time in the traditional course.
