William Faith Upon encountering permaculture for the first time in 2005, the nature of his artistry and activism changed for the better, both finding a confluence in permaculture. Shortly after completing a permaculture design course at the Ecovillage Training Center at The Farm in Summertown, TN in 2006, he co-founded Ars Terra, a sustainable homestead project in Palmdale, CA, where he taught several permaculture courses and workshops before moving to Chicago, where he co-founded the Chicagoland Permaculture Guild in 2012, and completed an advanced permaculture design course at Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture in Fountain City, WI in 2014. In 2015, he completed an advanced permaculture teacher training at Kinstone, became board president of the Great Rivers and Lakes Permaculture Institute, co-facilitated the first ever vegan PDC in the U.S. at Wild Earth Farm & Sanctuary in Irvine, KY and also launched Genius Loci Permaculture, a full-service Design, Build and Education firm.
William regularly gives presentations on permaculture at libraries, colleges and universities, eco/green fairs and festivals and private events, including several radio interviews on the subject. William can be reached at
