Bill rewired my brain in 1992, as I sat on a rather uncomfortable chair in a hall in Stroud. Permaculture was a new term to me, but I was intrigued, so the opportunity to hear from its founder was too good an opportunity to miss, so a few of us made the journey from Bristol. He had the rare ability to change the life of half of his audience forever, and to enrage the other half to the extent that it was sometimes surprising he made it out of some venues. Fortunately I fell into the life-changing half.

His message was that all this needs to change, and that that change needs to start now, and it starts with you. And you don’t need to spend years in a University to know what to do. You don’t need to study soil science for 3 years in order to make good soil. You don’t need to study architecture in order to create good shelter. He challenged me, and all of us, to stop talking, philosophising, dreaming, finger pointing, and to roll up our sleeves and start rebuilding the earth and her ecosystems in all their dazzling diversity. He gave me a kick up the arse which still propels me forward. He changed my life that man, changed my life. Thanks Bill. Go well.
