About Wil Seiler

I am third generation in a farming family in South Eastern Qld. Studied for a BA at JCU, Townsville; subjects including geology, history, philosophy. Quality controller for a year in a small furniture factory in Melbourne, before returning to take over family farm in 1989. In 2012 I completed a graduate diploma in teaching, hoping ultimately to teach permaculture and sustainability science at secondary level, but in the meantime teaching various classes at Primary and Secondary level, including rural studies and Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden.
My interest in Permaculture developed in the 1980's after first seeing Bill Mollison on TV. In 1992 I married Megan, who had been passionately interested in Permaculture since late 1970's. Together we have attended multiple workshops, including one with Bill Mollison in Brisbane; and Permaculture Expos in Brisbane, organised by Leo Mahon. We have developed our 540 acre farm into mixed production, including olives, cattle and pigs, using permaculture principles. Over the past 20 years we have had over 200 WWOFers and students; teaching permaculture and organic production techniques. Along with building a value adding and direct to customer marketing network, we have run courses and workshops, school gardens and consultancy. Our long term vision is to forge a permaculture demonstration and teaching facility on farm, with adjunct community programs, especially in schools.
