Bill Mollison: The Global Gardener - Permaculture in 4 Different Climatic Zones (1991)
Part 1   Part 2   Part 3   Part 4                            

Bill Mollison is a practical visionary. For three decades he has traveled the globe spreading the word about permaculture, the method of sustainable agriculture that he devised. Permaculture weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected productive communities. Mollison has proved that even in the most difficult conditions permaculture empowers people to turn wastelands into food forests.

This is a 4 part series with examples of permaculture in different climatic zones.

  1. Urban Permaculture - New York City and Harare, Zimbabwe. 
  2. Tropical Permaculture - Mollison introduces the basic principles, and shows results in Australia, India, and Zimbabwe.
  3. Permaculture in Arid Lands / Dry Lands- Reversing desertification in Arizona, Botswana and Australia.
  4. Permaculture in Cool Climates - Europe, Tasmania, and the San Juan Islands in Washington State.
