Permaculture founder Bill Mollison was recognized for his work educating millions throughout the world by leaders in his native Australia.
“Bill was awarded with the distinctive title of “Senior Australian of the Year 2010 – National Finalist” in a ceremony held in Hobart on November 23, 2009 and will go to Canberra for the National Awards ceremony held at Parliament House on January 25, 2010.”
