About Bill Wilson

Along with my wife and partner, Becky, we started Midwest Permaculture in early 2007 to bring a stronger permaculture presence to the middle of the US. As of early 2017 we have hosted over 75 Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Courses and other Advanced Permaculture Trainings and now have well over 1,500 graduates. Our students have gone on to start many projects of their own, begun offering their own design services, and some are teaching, even offering their own PDC courses. We couldn't be more proud of their accomplishments.

As our knowledge of permaculture grows so does our desire to implement it around our home and in our community. To date we have incorporated rain-gardens, swales, a 425-gal. rain-water tank, berms, raised beds, hugelkultur beds, modest guilds, an aquaponics system, various plant guilds and more. Some picture summaries are available on our website. Some of our neighbors are now adding permaculture elements to their landscapes as well.

Our Evolving Permaculture Home in Stelle, IL

We are also implementing a full permaculture design on 8.7 acres of land that our local non-profit organization owns. It is on this land that some of our permaculture training takes place.

I received my Permaculture Teachers Training from Jude Hobbs (permaculture teacher of 25 years - Oregon) in 2010. Becky took her teacher's training in 2011 with Rosemary Morrow (author of 'Earth User's Guide to Permaculture') when Rosemary was teaching in Austria. We are grateful to have been trained by these talented and giving teachers. Both of them trained with Bill Mollison and have learned much from David Holmgren as well.

Our goal as certifying instructors of the PDC is to have our students leaving their Course excited, with useful knowledge and skills, and ready to implement both. The feedback from our students seems to reflects this.

Besides our well-received PDC courses we offer 3 advanced trainings now including:


  1.  The Teacher Training

  2. The Permaculture Farming Course

  3. An Advanced Training in Permaculture Design


We have lived in the small, sustainably-oriented community of Stelle, IL, for almost 4 decades. Although we are from the Midwest, we are invited to teach in other areas of the country which is reflected in our course schedule.

That's about it. We wish you well in your permaculture pursuits. Maybe our paths will cross someday.
