Learning Permaculture with Bill Wilson | sivanandabahamas.org

Learning Permaculture with Bill Wilson

Please share what you do in 10-15 words. Permaculture designer and teacher of the Permaculture Design Certificate Course.

Why do you do what you do? I am inspired by the thinking and ethics behind permaculture design and am passionate about sharing it with others.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? How so many people are already thinking and living like a permaculturist but are not even aware of the word yet nor do they understand the significance of their thinking or their contributions.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? It began as a spiritual journey to understand how life really works and what is true in this world. Permaculture, like yoga, is a path in whereby people can peak behind the veil of our cultural illusions and fantasies to find an authentic experience of being human while learning to be an agent of peace and plenty in the world.

What book(s) are you currently reading? “Permaculture Handbook” by Peter Bane and “The Soul of the Soil” by Grace Gershuny.

Bill Wilson is an internationally recognized teacher of permaculture having hosted and taught at over 40 Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Courses in just the last 7 years. He is the co-founder of Midwest Permaculture with his wife Rebecca and makes the subject not only easily understandable but brings it alive with possibilities. Bill has delivered 5 PDC Courses at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, CA.
