Green Drinks to Host Permaculturist Bill Wilson on June 28

“Is it possible to grow our food in abundance without pesticides and herbicides and in harmony with nature?” Increasingly, people are taking that question very seriously. Many of the answers can be found in the study of permaculture.

Permaculturist Bill Wilson will return to Door County to lead a permaculture design charrette beginning on June 29. On the eve of the charrette, Wilson will be the featured guest at Green Drinks at Glas Green Coffeehouse, located at 67 E Maple Street, in Sturgeon Bay from 5:30 – 7 pm. Green Drinks events are free and open to the public.

For over 30 years the permaculture movement has been helping groups and individuals rethink the relationship between humans and the rest of the natural world from both a practical and spiritual perspective. The movement is best known for its work in creating self-sustaining agricultural environments.

“[Wilson] is committed to helping communities identify their collective strengths and resources to aid in their transitions to self-sufficiency and resilience,” said Ann Hippensteel, who is hosting the charrette, along with her husband, at their Wind and Sun Farm.
