Hi Looby,

Firstly, well done on the new book; I will find it to be a really useful tool as I explore what Paul would probably call "Purple" Permaculture.
The more I scratch the surface of the less tangible side of Permaculture, the more I appreciate its value in bringing a deeper connection to the land, which will help me in my land-based design.

I have been looking into the 8 forms of capital a lot recently, and have noticed in your book that that you have added another to the original 8: Health and Wellbeing. I recall Ethan Roland saying that his 8 forms was a draft map, and that he would be interested to see additional capital flows appear, but you are the first person I have seen who is stretching these edges.

How you would envision Health & Wellbeing being exchanged as a form of capital?
And would you welcome people proposing further ways of thinking in addition to your seven?

Thanks,
Iain

hi Iain, interesting question about exchanging health and well-being capital. I hadn't really thought about it as a form of exchange - more as something we build for ourselves. Although I think you could extend it to the health and wellbeing of your relationship, family or other group.

I'm sure that are other ways to think differently beyond the 7 that I have discussed - it would be interesting to see what comes up in the future.
thanks Looby
