A Sample of our Newsletter
We send out about 4 educational emails per year to our “Friends of Midwest Permaculture” email list. Each email has something that we think is particularly interesting. We will also keep you informed of our upcoming schedule of courses and different kinds of permaculture events. You can easily unsubscribe at any time and we never share our email addresses with anyone…Ever.
Midwest Permaculture – December, 2019
Permaculture Principle #4
Apply self-regulation and accept feedback.
Hello Permaculture Friends,
2019 was a full and rewarding year. We are continually blessed with inspiring students and committed clients. The feedback we are getting from them is that they feel that the world needs an ethical approach to caring deeply for our planet, the people on it and the future of us all.
So as we enter our 14th year (2020), we will continue to dedicate ourselves to bringing the tools of permaculture to those who resonate with our approach to it. Hence classes, consulting and the pursuit of relationships of higher purpose will fill our year ahead. Our most up-to-date schedule for 2020 is here.
So, may we ask what is alive in you at this time? Is your inner voice asking you to contribute more fully to something of greater meaning in the world? Will you be able to listen to it and follow it?
It’s very easy to tap this inner voice down and just keep plugging ahead, but we believe the world is facing a future that will have greater and greater challenges before it. Whether we wish to engage or not, life will end up pushing most all of us up against our comfort zones, encouraging us to be involved in the co-creation of a saner future.
But we know that stepping out of our comfort zones and into something different can be a bit frightening. But the work is more important that being afraid, so it is our courage we muster.
Courage is not the absence of fear.
Courage is fear walking.
We look forward to seeing and meeting many of you this year. We’ll be walking this journey with you.
Wishing your a wonderful new year…Bill and Becky Wilson
Sharing the Surplus
When there is a surplus at the end of a year we look for ways of sharing it where we know it will do some good. We’ve been in relationship with these two organizations that exemplify that higher purpose. If you are inspired, they can use your support as well. Links and their stories are below.
