About Geoff Lawton

Since 1995, I have specialized in permaculture education, design, implementation, system establishment, administration and community development.

In 1996, I was happy to be accredited with the Permaculture Community Services Award by the permaculture movement for services in Australia and around the world.

Since 1985, I have undertaken a large number of jobs, consulting, designing, teaching and implementing in over fifty countries around the world. Clients have included private individuals, groups, communities, governments, aid organizations, non-governmental organizations and multinational companies.

In October 1997, Bill Mollison, upon his retirement, asked me to establish and direct a new Permaculture Research Institute of Australia (PRI Australia) on the 147-acre (0.59 km2) Tagari Farm. The site was developed over a period of three years and I established The Permaculture Research Institute as a global networking centre for permaculture projects. The institute is a non-profit company limited by guarantee. It is currently located at Zaytuna Farm at The Channon in Northern NSW, Australia where I am currently the managing director.

PRI Australia won the Humanitarian Water & Food Award for 2010 for their initiative “Greening the Desert“.

My aim is to establish self-replicating educational demonstration sites.

I established the Permaculture Research Institute and the www.permaculturenews.org website to network mainframe information worldwide.
