Bill Mollison 1928-2016
Bill Mollison founded the first and original Permaculture Institute, which was established in 1979. He was born 1928 in Stanley, Tasmania, Australia and died recently on the 24 September 2016 in Sisters' Creek, Tasmania. Known as the “father of permaculture”, Bill’s legacy is that hundreds of thousands of past students have created a world-wide network to take his concept forward.
Creating The Bill Mollison Permaculture Bursary
Here at The Sustainability Centre UK, we are creating a lasting tribute to Bill Mollison by establishing an annual bursary from 2017 funded by our Charity – the Earthworks Trust. This will enable at least one student a year to have a free place on our Permaculture Design Course.
In offering this bursary we would hope to inspire others to create a network of bursaries across the globe to reflect the global influence that Bill has had.
