Our Chelsea Green Authors : Kerry Dawborn (Editor)

Kerry Dawborn (Editor)

Kerry Dawborn is a permaculturist with post-graduate qualifications in Social Science, Environmental Urban Planning and Secondary Teaching. She has worked in both sustainable and conventional agriculture and in the organic produce retail industry. Kerry is passionate about ecological economics, small-scale sustainable farming and land-use, community food security, social justice and related public policy and education issues. She has been a university tutor, researcher, permaculture teacher and political candidate. Living in the Yarra Ranges with her three dogs, her chickens, muscovies, fruit trees and vegie garden (when she has time), Kerry looks forward to a world in which humans understand and honour their place as part of a diverse, healthy and biologically rich earth community, and in which access to healthy, sustainably produced local food, and vibrant, connected human communities, are a right, and not a privilege, for people all over the planet.

    Permaculture Pioneers

    Stories from the New Frontier

    Permaculture is much more than organic gardening. Arguably it is one of Australia's greatest intellectual exports, having helped people worldwide to design ecologically sustainable strategies for their homes, gardens, farms and communities. This book charts a history of the first three decades of permaculture, through the personal stories of Australian permaculturists. From permaculture co-originator David Holmgren, to ABC Gardening Australia host Josh Byrne, the authors span the generations and the continent.
