Michael Morrison

Mike has had an interest in permaculture for at least 40 years, with his first introduction to it by Bill Mollison showing off cabbages growing under Nasturtiums on a NZ TV interview. He was extremely impressed by that and has followed ever since with strong interest.

He has been an environmental inventor for the past 30 years and has done a lot of work processing food into dry powders. A lot of this work involved producing fertilisers from waste.

Mike now feels like he has gone back to the beginning and is starting afresh. He is currently in a very privileged position of creating a new garden applying permaculture principles. The garden will feed a very large family.

Now more than ever he is starting to appreciate the living communities in the soil, plant and animal world and just beginning to appreciate how they all work together.
