About David Holmgren Permaculture Founder

David Holmgren is best known as the co-originator of the permaculture concept following the publication of Permculture One, written with Bill Mollison in 1978. Within the growing international permaculture movement, David is respected for his commitment to presenting permaculture ideas through practical projects and teaching by personal example. He shows 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. He lives at Melliodora, a one-hectare permaculture demonstration site at Hepburn Springs, Central Victoria, Australia.
