The Team


Maddy Harland
Maddy Harland
Co-founder and Senior Editor
Maddy is a writer, editor and speaker. She lives in north Devon with Tim where they care for an ancient woodland and wildflower meadows. Permaculture came into her life over 30 years ago and inspired the founding of this magazine and their publishing company, Permanent Publications. She loves growing her own food and appreciating nature, from large landscapes to tiny insects. She is passionate about regenerating the land and also culture and has been lucky to be inspired by many mentors in her life, including Joanna Macy, David Holmgren, Max Lindegger, Patrick Whitefield, Polly Higgins, Jamie Sams, and the many talented writers and authors who she has been lucky enough to work with.
Tim Harland
Tim Harland
Co-founder and Publisher
Tim is co-founder of Permaculture Magazine and is project overseer and ‘finisher’. He is a keen gardener (food and wildlife primarily) and is enjoying settling into his new woodland home in the south west of England with Maddy. Here they plan on making themselves as self-reliant as possible and enhance the biodiversity of their already ecologically rich site. He considers himself incredibly fortunate, and a little surprised, to find himself living in such a paradisiacal place where he likes doing nothing better than sitting immersed in the dream of Nature. Over his life he has been influenced by, among many others, Patrick Whitefield, Max Lindegger, Launcelot Fleming, Ram Dass and of course his dear wife who has led him on many unexpected and exciting adventures.
Tony Rollinson
Tony Rollinson
Sales and Marketing Director
Tony engaged with environmentalism, feminism, co-operation, the everyday and taking responsibility at the first gig he ever attended ... by the hugely influential Crass back at the start of the 1980s. He has remained an activist with a focus on urban permaculture, people and diverse communities. He has a love of music (playing in and managing bands), the arts and history. He has a BA, an MA and has published a book (which was made into a film and album). He lives in Portsmouth with wife Andrea and Rudi dog. The place he is at right now is to tread lighter, be more local and to make sure that Permaculture magazine, Permanent Publications and permaculture people and courses are there for people when they work out they need them. His permaculture inspirations include special shout outs for Patrick Whitefield (still miss you man), Morag Gamble (truly talented, her work with Permayouth is inspiring beyond words) and those innovative groups who are weaving in vegan approaches, the vital people care aspect, the Black Permaculture Network and our myriad of forebears who have helped us get to this place where we have enough knowledge to be better.

Kate Saunders
Kate Saunders
Subscriptions Manager
After many years working in the Arts and Heritage sector achieving 2 BAS and a MA in Fine Art, Kate moved to Permanent Publications to help educating people to live in harmony with the planet. She has learnt that we can all help to heal climate change, a small action at a time = recycling, preloved, being aware of and reducing her carbon footprint etc. She supports the local economy and small businesses, especially since the various lockdowns. With her daughter she has fundraised for a Welsh dog rescue and after losing her beloved rescue chihuahua Paige, is now living with her older lady chihuahua Poppy. Disability rights are also very close to her heart.
