Bill Mollison’s Classic 1981 Permaculture Design Course pamphlets

by | Jan 3, 2021 | Permaculture | 5 comments

This series of pamphlets is a complete transcript of an early Permaculture Design Course taught by Bill Mollison in 1981. The transcripts were typeset and distributed online as a PDF by Barking Frogs Permaculture.

Originally it was a series of 15 pamphlets with transcribed tape records of one of the first Permaculture Design Courses ever taught in Wilton, New Hampshire, the booklets makes for interesting reading.

We were fortunate to have had Bill Mollison spend some time with us at Ecocentro IPEC in Brazil. He was our surprise teacher in a Permaculture Design Course (PDC), much to the excitement of international students from the USA, Australia, and Brazil.

Enjoy the stories in the pamphlets from a man that sometimes seemed larger than life.
