About Angus Soutar

Angus is interested in applying permaculture design to a wide range of situations, and is intrigued by its seemingly universal application. He is keen to develop practise through the use of methods and tools, finding these easier to work with than bald "principles". He is a champion of apprenticeship as an appropriate way to develop design practice and places great value on experience "in the field".

Angus, together with his associates and apprentices, work under the banner of The Northern School of Permaculture (visit us under "projects" for courses and updates). We provide high quality training in permaculture design. Our "school" is not a single site - we work with property owners on a variety of sites - it is more a "school of thought" where we are continually developing the art and practice of permaculture design.

Angus studied permaculture with Andy Langford and, later, with Bill Mollison, and he has applied permaculture design to his work since he graduated from the design course in 1990. He has been teaching the permaculture design course since 1992, and has worked with many of the leading British permaculture teachers. He was awarded the diploma in permaculture design in 1997 by the Permaculture Academy (Britain). In 1999 he joined with the Academy to introduce a support system for students and diploma apprentices wishing to improve their design skills and work with other designers. This work continues to develop. Angus has helped to found the Permaculture Institute of North Britain to provide a firm and reliable base for design practitioners in that part of Europe, and has strong links with permaculture designers across continental Europe.
