Presenter Spotlight Q&A: Bill Wilson

authentic human experience through permaculture


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.
