Patrick Whitefield
Patrick created the residential and online courses but has recently retired from teaching. 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 was one of the leading and pioneering permaculture teachers in Britain, and indeed in Europe. In his legacy of books and films he has combined a deep knowledge of the subject with an inspiring and professional 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.
