“Seen from the sun, the biosphere is whole – one radiant membrane, blossoming from the earth’s core of flowing rock. All beings bathe in the same flow of sunlight, all are washed by the same air and breathe in subtle, rhythmic accord. Gaia, as biologist Lynn Margulis wrote, is symbiosis – the mutual interdependence of the whole – seen from space.”
– Eleanor O’Hanlon

Maddy is editor and co-founder of Permaculture magazine and Permanent Publications, a publishing company dedicated to regenerative, ecological solutions. She helped set up the Sustainability Centre in Hampshire, once a military base, now a thriving learning centre.
