Co-founder of the permaculture movement, David Holmgren, will be visiting Mullumbimby this weekend with an array of events planned.

Organisers say that David maintains one of Australia’s best-known permaculture demonstration sites, Melliodora, which is based in Hepburn Springs in central Victoria.
