Known as the Father Of Permaculture.
His system advocated sustainable and self sufficient agricultural eco systems. The systems work with, rather than against nature, when producing food, and favoured cultivated species suited for local conditions.
He founded the Permaculture Institute in 1978.
Permaculture is now a global reality.
