Working towards a diverse, resilient and thriving world grounded in care for the earth, each other and the future of all.

Now as the PA Patron, I see my role as more actively contributing my conceptual and historical perspectives within the movement to support Permaculture Australia’s various priorities and projects towards the vision of an Australia enlivened by permaculture ethics and design principles. As patron I will continue to highlight the lineage from and respect for Indigenous and traditional ways of being inherent in permaculture that can help all Australians come to terms with history and rekindle a shared connection to country.”

Where can I study permaculture?

Dan Palmer, permaculture pioneer and creator of Making Permaculture Stronger, died in the first week of August. To his friends, readers and listeners, his passing was a sudden and tragic loss. He had emerged as an important voice in the permaculture community, gentle but persistent, bringing people from related approaches in to yarn about evolving design processes. Fearless questioner, passionate connector, a strong and fragile a spirit as the living systems he loved, Dan is sadly missed. Donations to his family can be made at
