Bill & Becky Wilson Salon

EVENT: Thursday, June 10 from 7:00–9:00pm

Our special guests are Transition Trainers, plus otherwise multi-talented individuals—knowledgeable in Permaculture, Transition, community-building, intentional communities, and much more.

The event will be a "salon format" which means a warm and comfortable gathering where we can explore ideas in great depth. Bring your questions about Transition topics, leadership issues, community-building issues, or Permaculture concepts.

This is a chance to "cross pollinate" Transition ideas with another geographic area, to hear from thinkers who have a different regional viewpoint about The Great Turning, and to gain from the experience of long-time Permaculture veterans. We hope you can join us for this world-class conversation.

Light refreshments will be served.

Bill Wilson (permaculturist, communitarian and teacher) is the co-founder of Midwest Permaculture along with his wife Rebecca. They are 30-year residents of the sustainably oriented community of Stelle, IL which hosts its own garden, tool, chicken and dinner cooperatives. Bill combines his years of community experience with a broad based knowledge of permaculture. He shares his understanding of what it takes to create resilient communities by hosting many educational permaculture events and speaking regularly on the subject. Bill and Rebecca are creating a permaculture oasis surrounding their traditional suburban home while also supporting the recently birthed Transition Initiative in their own town. More information about Bill and Becky along with pictures of their permaculture-oriented home can be found on their website at

Becky Wilson is co-founder with her husband Bill of Midwest Permaculture and works from home creating educational courses and events. Becky served as community manager for 18 years (paid) and President of the homeowners association for 8 years (unpaid). She gained experience in all aspects of community living, from the nuts and bolts of water and sewer, to social events created on a shoestring, to the highs and lows of what it takes to encourage people to work together. Becky homeschooled her children and participated in learning co-ops. She was trained in a self-awareness and discovery program called Core Creatives and became a facilitator. In 2002, she and her husband, along with several friends, created a not-for-profit organization called Center for Sustainable Community (CSC) with the vision of creating transformation through education in all aspects of sustainability. She is certified as a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner, and holds a Permaculture Design Certificate.
