Bill Mollison

Bill Mollison co-originated the Permaculture concept with David Holmgren. He is referred to as “the father of Permaculture” for his tireless work spreading the ideas and nurturing the Permaculture movement from the 1970 to his passing on the 24th of September 2016.

Bill founded The Permaculture Institute in Tasmania, and created the Permaculture Design Course (PDC). Bill taught thousands of people throughout the world how to grow food and be more sustainable using permaculture design principles. In 1981 he was awarded with the Right Livelihood Award (also known as “Alternative Nobel prize”) for his accomplishments in the field of permaculture.

Bill led a Permaculture Design Certificate along with Nick Ritar for Milkwood in the summer of 2011 in Sydney.
