About the Author

A pioneer in ecological design, John Todd has been active in shaping the discipline for more than years. He has befriended and inspired such well-known figures in the field as Janine Benyus, Bill McKibben, Paul Hawken, David Orr, and Wes Jackson. Together with his wife, Nancy Jack Todd, Todd was named as a visionary of the twentieth century by the British organization Resurgence, and he has been featured in "The Genius Issue" of Esquire magazine. Dr. Todd was also named one of the twentieth century's top thirty-five inventors by the Lemelson-MIT Program for Invention and Innovation. In 2010 the Smithsonian Institution recognized his eco-machine at the Center for Sustainable Living, part of the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, as a significant design breakthrough. The drawings and film of the project were displayed in the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum of Design in New York City.

Reviews

"John Todd has a sixth sense for the Creation, a deep feeling for ecology, and the practical ingenuity of a brilliant inventor. This is the story of possibilities, healing, restoration, and redemption--about coming home to Earth as a partner and cocreator."
--David W. Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics

"Healing Earth is a rare gem of a beautifully illustrated book and a valuable resource for anyone ready to engage in ecosystems restoration or regenerative development. The book can be regarded as John's memoirs, distilling 50 years of professional practice in ecological design and engineering into a delightful and informative read. It offers a passionate testimony to humanity's potential to create conditions conducive to life by healing the Earth and her people."
-- Dr. Daniel Christian Wahl, author of Designing Regenerative Cultures
