Originally studying under the founder of Permaculture, Bill Mollison in 1980, and later with Lea Harrison and internationally renowned community designer Max Lindegger, he has since worked as consultant, teacher and project coordinator through south and south east Asia, Australia and Europe.
Mollison asked him to present Permaculture to Plan International and he subsequently worked with them throughout South East Asia over a period of two years, teaching courses and consulting on their community development programmes.
In India he was working on projects funded by various sources, including WWF, MS Swaminathan Foundation, AusAID. I created the original Permaculture design for Green School, Bali.
