Peak Moment 157: The Heart of Permaculture



Former truck driver Bill Wilson tells an insightful story about the energy packed in a gallon of gas — which we won’t always have in cheap abundance. Now a permaculture educator, he sees permaculture as a viable, realistic way to use nature to provide the abundance we really need — harvesting sunlight, food, wind, water and more. Can you guess what the magic stuff is that we all can’t live without? (No, it’s not oil.)

In his classes, Bill not only passes on a bounty of practical, common sense ideas, he also inspires people to experience being alive on the planet, finding their connectedness with life, their passion and ways to make a world that works for everybody. (Midwestpermaculture.com).

We met Bill in 2007 when we videotaped his presentation “A Permaculture Perspective: Living in Authenticity During Energy Descent at “A Renaissance of Local” in Colorado.
