“Mostly this was taken from two different courses. I start with the 1985 course because it was Bill’s introduction to that group so he was starting from scratch with them. For those that are not familiar with Bill it should also be a good introduction to him for you. He had flown in the evening before and leapt straight into aquaculture. The next day he took a different group for a weekend course on Designing Your Own Backyard. He covered home ponds in that so I have included that small section. Various parts of the 1983 Permaculture Design Course that I attended in 1983 in Stanley Tasmania are included also. There is some doubling of information but I doubt you will be bored because it is usually in a different context and from a different perspective. “ – Jeff Nugent, editor and author of Permaculture Plants
