"Tagari" is a Tasmanian Aboriginal word meaning "those of us who are gathered here" or "us mob".
We began in 1978 as a community of people who worked and lived on eighty acres of swamp land in Stanley, Tasmania, researching & experimenting with Permaculture concepts. The development of sustainable design principles began here & together with the establishment of the Permaculture Institute, was the catalyst for the birth of the Permaculture ethic, which has since spread worldwide.

Tagari Publications was founded by Bill Mollison in 1979 - the primary function of Tagari Publications is to support the work of the Permaculture Institute by publishing and selling books about Sustainability and then transferring the profit to the Permaculture Institute at year end.
