“You start with your nose, then your hands, your back door, your doorstep. You get all that right, then everything is right. If all that’s wrong, nothing can ever be right” – Bill Mollison

The interconnected permaculture ethics of earth care and people care imply that wholeness and earth repair is not just about the wider ‘out there’ of our gardens, farms, forests and oceans, but is just as importantly to do with the ‘ecology of the self’. Paying attention to our own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs and development is fundamental to good ‘Zone Zero Zero’ design. Just as peace is not simply the absence of war, so too health is not just about being free from disease. Therefore self-care – setting up holistic mind and body systems in order to avoid sickness, depression, stress and burn-out – is a vital part of enhancing well-being and developing personal effectiveness.

A newly revised, updated and expanded edition, this publication is a collection of articles, writings, notes and thoughts by Graham themed around applying permaculture design thinking to people and the ‘ecology of the self’.
