Talk: 17th October > “Permaculture and The Global South”

Permaculture through its work in the Global South, and with Refugees is giving extraordinary results and opportunities for permaculturalist to be more relevant and ready for the challenges that this century is presenting us with. Covid is giving opportunities to the Global South to lead.


Rosemary Morrow trained in agricultural science at Sydney University, rural sociology at the Sorbonne in Paris, development at Reading UK and horticulture at TAFE but, after spending time in Africa, she realized there needed to be a better alternative to conventional agricultural practices. She found this in the ethics and integrated applied science of permaculture, and has been teaching permaculture ever since.

For almost 40 years Rosemary has worked extensively with farmers and villagers in Africa, Central and South East Asia and Eastern Europe. Rosemary has especially dedicated much of her efforts to people of war-torn nations such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Kurdistan and East Timor, refugees in Turkey, Bangladesh, Philippines, Malaysia, and to communities experiencing the serious effects of climate change like the Solomon Islands, and the effects of the Global Financial Crisis, like Spain, Greece and Portugal.
