Nature-inspired living

Yes – we have all experienced the benefits of learning from nature and designing our lives – once you start you don’t want to stop.  And when hard times (such as Covid) come along we already have a toolkit to dive into. Because the natural principles have evolved over hundreds of millions of years they are useful in any circumstance.
