Ecological design is not so much an individual art practiced by individual designers as it is an ongoing negotiation between a community and the ecology of particular places.”

— David W. Orr

“The standard for ecological design is neither efficiency nor productivity but health, beginning with that of the soil and extending upward through plants, animals and people. It is impossible to impair health at any level without affecting it at other levels. The etymology of the word ‘health’ reveals its connection to other words such as healing, wholeness, and holy.”
