About Harry Wykman

Permaculture is my passion. I became interested by reading Permaculture One, which I found on my parents bookshelf. They had taken courses with David Coleman in the early 90's when our family moved to Perth, Western Australia.

Since then, I haven't looked back. I WOOFed my way around Australia in 2002 with the aim of learning about community living and Permaculture as it applies to land-use. I worked and learned with people like Julie Firth (Geraldton, WA), Robin Clayfield (Crystal Waters, QLD), Rick and Naomi Coleman (VIC) and Graeme and Anna-Marie Brookman (SA). This was my real introduction to Permaculture in practice.

I am a member of the Peacetree Community in Perth, Western Australia. I am the principal worker of Peacetree Permaculture and Edible Landscapes. My sister Bonnie Wykman and fellow communard Joshua Hobby work with me in this enterprise while developing their own expressions - respectively, The Compost Tea Company and Design to Produce.

Plants have a Microbial Immune System

It is something that has been “known” or suspected for some time but it is wonderful to have this kind of hard science to show it. That is, that plants cooperate with bacteria (and other microbes!) for their protection and the microbes’ sustenance.

Perennial Veggies for Mediterranean Climates from the Master of Perennial Vegetables, Eric Toensmeier

Natural Dryland Gardening and the Lessons of Semilla Besada
