About Tagari

Who are Tagari Publications?

"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.
