peaking fossil fuels, global warming, and a 
fragile global food system---and comes to the 
conclusion "All the worlds problems can be solved in a Garden".

         From working with the aboriginals in the
Australian outback to Greening the Desert in the
Dead Sea of Jordan (see video

providing post tsunami reconstruction. Geoff has
just about done it all; thinking and acting both
locally and globally. Geoff takes you on an
adventure you will never forget. Hear about his
life and times in permaculture, his journey,
work, challenges, threats and opportunities.
Whatever you do this year don’t miss this mind
blowing presentation that will leave you in awe.

own suburban backyard before venturing to large
scale properties and overseas projects. He also

co-originator of Permaculture, upon his
retirement, asked Geoff to establish and direct a
new Permaculture Research Institute on the Bill's
147 acre Tagari Farm. Geoff developed the site
over three years and established  The
Permaculture Research Institute as a registered
