Wes is a curious bugger from birth. He has been an organizer from his early days bringing groups of people together , it is an his blood

He loved history and specially Geography and studied Urban Planing in University.

First heard of Permaculture in 1992 when living in Hawaii and saw his first copy of The Permaculture Manual the was pulled out of a garbage can library in the jungle and knew this was what he had journeyed to find an ethical design system

Took my first PDC with Bill Mollison in 1996 then again in 1997 in Ojai CA. We the grads from the course South Coast Permaculture Guild was formed with listserves for each regional guild

In 2008 we brought Woody Tasch, author of Slow Money, Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered to Santa Barbara, and as a result the Slow Money Santa Barbara Chapter was formed. Margie and Wes have been the local Slow Money representatives at the National Conferences and participated in establishing the structure of the National and Local chapter bylaws.
