About Richard Larson

I have been a small business owner since 1990.

Being exposed to the permaculture idea a few years ago, adding completion Geoff Lawton's online PDC 2013, I have begun to intensely implement the methods. Including diversifying my city backyard and implementing a mainframe Permaculture-inspired design on a wild land track. This wild land has many of the criteria as highlighted by Geoff, and Bill Mollison in the manual, as potential for an aquaculture site.

In my view it is important to gain hands on experience as a step in establishing a valuable consultancy, with the aim to establish demonstration sites that will aid others in learning Permaculture techniques. Thank you.
