Bill and his wife/partner Becky are co-founders of Midwest Permaculture. Now in their ninth year, Bill has become one of the respected permaculture teachers and designers in the U.S.. The goal of Midwest Permaculture is to see permaculture (in name or action) become a household term. Bill’s two adults sons are now involved in permaculture as well.
Bill joins us today to discuss among other things “The 4 Fires of Group Work”.
Often, people get together with dreams of starting a permaculture group, a community or a business only to be surprised and disappointed when it falls apart. They have failed to navigate the 4-fires.
With 35 years of small community living experience Bill has hard won insights into what it takes to work with others. When permaculture oriented projects fail it is rarely because of the the design piece — it’s almost always the people piece.
