THE PATRICK TIMPONE SHOW
Environmental Design Consultant
Now more than ever it is mission critical to get cleaver with the space we have available to grow our own food. Growing our own fruits and vegetables is the only way to know exactly what we are eating.
David Holmgren is an environmental design consultant, author, teacher and public speaker with an international reputation as a leading sustainability thinker.
In the late 1970s David was the youthful co-author (with Bill Mollison) of Permaculture One (1978), a milestone in the application of design to productive land use (now published in six languages).
How do we all fit into this complex relationship with all things living? Just what is are our realistic options for health and healing ourselves and the planet?
David Holmgren is best known as the co-originator with Bill Mollison of the permaculture concept following the publication of Permaculture One in 1978. Since then he has developed three properties, consulted and supervised in urban and rural projects and presented lectures, workshops and courses at a wide variety of events and venues in Australia and around the world. His writings over those three decades span a diversity of subjects and issues but always illuminating another aspect of permaculture thinking.
At home (Melliodora in Hepburn, Central Victoria), David is the vegetable gardener, silviculturalist and builder. Within the international and growing permaculture movement, David is respected for his commitment to presenting permaculture ideas through practical projects and teaching by personal example, that a sustainable lifestyle is a realistic, attractive and powerful alternative to dependent consumerism.
As well as constant involvement in the practical side of permaculture, David is passionate about the philosophical and conceptual foundations for sustainability, the focus of his seminal book Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. This bookhas been significant influences on the development of Transition Initiatives around theworld. More recently his Future Scenarios work has seen him recognised as a significant thinker about the “Energy Descent future.” After a decade of significant international travel, David is no longer flying but continues to do some international presentations by skype and pre-recorded video including receipt of the recent award by Italian environmental organisation.
