Permaculture One will be of interest to all permies as a historical document from the very start of the movement, but its information is still relevant to help people on their permaculture journey today. In particular, it contains a catalogue of 130 trees and plants useful to a temperate climate permaculture system.
The copy that this facsimile edition was created from has two special features: it is signed by both Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, and features the sticker from the bookstore it was purchased at: Rellim Books, David Holmgren’s parents’ bookshop.
About the Authors
Bill Mollison has inspired countless people to take action. He is a recipient of the “Right Livelihood Award,” a prestigious honour that is often nicknamed the “Alternative Nobel Prize.” He was also named one of the “Senior Australians of 2010,” and has received honours and accolades from many places he has visited worldwide.
Bill’s first two books, “Permaculture One” (co-authored with David Holmgren) and “Permaculture Two,” are considered by many to be among the most important writings in sustainable agriculture. His encyclopaedic classic Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual is used as the foundation for the Permaculture Design Courses that he developed in the early 80’s that spread the permaculture philosophy and practice worldwide.
