Patrick Whitefield
Patrick has recently retired from our residential courses but it continuing to teach the Land Course Online. He was brought up on a smallholding in Somerset and qualified in agriculture at Shuttleworth College, Bedfordshire. After several years working in agriculture in the Middle East and Africa, he settled in central Somerset where he still lives. In 1983 he bought a flower-rich hay meadow to save it from destruction and kept it as a Patrick Whitefield nature reserve for 25 years before handing it on to the Somerset Wildlife Trust for safe keeping. He's always been a vegetable gardener, and some fifteen years ago he planted an orchard which now gives him an abundant supply of apples from September to May. In the past he's made his living by a variety of country crafts, and for a while he was a prominent member of the Green Party. Since 1990 he's devoted himself to permaculture, especially to teaching it, and has appeared on the BBC2 television programmes, It's not Easy Being Green and A Farm for the Future.
"I find permaculture makes use of the varied skills I've acquired during my life," he says. "and puts them into a cohesive whole."
Patrick is now one of the leading permaculture teachers in Britain, indeed in Europe. He combines a deep knowledge of the subject with an inspiring and professional teaching style. He's written three books on permaculture: Permaculture in a Nutshell, How to Make a Forest Garden and The Earth Care Manual. His latest book is The Living Landscape, how to read it and understand it, a subject especially close to his heart. He also practices as a design consultant.

Patrick Whitefield 1949-2015
...
Patrick Whitefield, respected permaculture teacher and pioneering author, died this morning.
It is with great sadness that we announce that permaculture teacher and author, Patrick Whitefield, died peacefully this morning (27th February) at his home in Glastonbury, Somerset.
Patrick was loved and respected by the permaculture community worldwide for his books and teaching methods that defined temperate permaculture design. He leaves a wife, Cathy, and a son, Caleb.
Patrick was born on 11th Feb 1949 in Devizes, Wiltshire to the Vickers family. He was brought up on a smallholding in Somerset and qualified in agriculture at Shuttleworth College, Bedfordshire. After several years working in agriculture in the Middle East and Africa, he settled in central Somerset. In 1983, he bought a flower-rich hay meadow, The 'White Field', to save it from destruction and kept it as a nature reserve for 25 years before handing it on to the Somerset Wildlife Trust for safe keeping. He adopted the name 'Whitefield' in honour of this field.
Patrick was a countryman and he loved the part of Somerset where he lived. He has always been a vegetable gardener, and some years ago he planted an orchard at the field which gave him an abundant supply of apples from September to May. In his earlier days, he made his living by a variety of country crafts, and for a while he was a prominent member of the Ecology Party (which became the Green Party).
From 1990, he devoted himself to permaculture, especially to teaching his own form of land based practical permaculture. He said, "I find permaculture makes use of the varied skills I've acquired during my life," he says, "and puts them into a cohesive whole."
Patrick was one of the leading and pioneering permaculture teachers in Britain, and indeed in Europe. He taught at various locations around Britain, including Ragmans Lane Farm, Gloucestershire where he developed a two week design course that offers a wide range of experiences yet covers the essential syllabus.
...
Patrick also practised as a permaculture design consultant.
Patrick has appeared in several BBC TV programmes, made popular YouTube videos and was a consulting editor of Permaculture Magazine: Practical Solutions For Self-Reliance since its launch in 1992.
Patrick was a warm and dedicated man who devoted his life to teaching permaculture and the preservation of the Earth. He was a stalwart friend and an honest and hard working editor and writer. He helped steer Permaculture magazine in its fledgling days, giving feedback on every article and a detailed critique of each issue that he humorously termed 'Slag the Mag'. Later on, he kept his benign eye on Permanent Publications' publishing work and was always available as a sounding board and advisor.
