In September of 1983 I had a rare opportunity to spend two weeks at a Permaculture Design Course by Bill Mollison. It occurred to me that not everyone had such an opportunity.
In an attempt to make that course available to everyone I took professional recording equipment with me. Much editing later, I present the enthusiast with an audio set which marks a point in history. A time before Permaculture has become a household word. 
            - Jeff Nugent, editor.


I have owned a set of these recordings for many years. It is a recording of the design course which I actually attended in 1983. They capture Bill in classic form - full of energy, enthusiasm, and passion. As a Permaculture teacher, designer and consultant, working on numerous projects around the world, I have found them to be an invaluable and endless source of reference information and inspiration.
