Take a tour of Purple Pear Farm with this short video. PURPLE PEAR FARM in New South Wales, Australia, is a permaculture and biodynamic farm with rotating tractor domes over mandala garden beds, pigs, chooks and some great philosophy.
Stanthorpe Permaculture Group had a great turn out on the morning of 3rd July with around 22 people coming together to exchange seeds. The variety of seeds available was incredible. We put all the contributions on the table and then people helped themselves to what they wanted to grow.
Bill Mollison (1928 – 2016) was the father of permaculture. Charlie Mgee wrote this song to commemorate his life as a formidable agent of change who inspired the world. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the “In Memory Of Bill Mollison” group on Facebook for the inspiration. www.facebook.com/groups/618041141700206/
Iconoclast, provocateur, visionary, gardener, author, educator, scientific researcher, university lecturer, one-time forester and fisherman — Bill Mollison, was a man of many parts.
Australia and the world have lost one of its most influential thinkers on community-led approaches to sustainable development. Author, educator, academic, researcher and innovative thinker, Bill Mollison, died peacefully in Hobart, Tasmania, on 24 September.
