Design for the Environment
Having noticed the dog, you notice a butterfly. Having noticed the horses, you hear a woodpecker and then see it fly across a corner of the field.
- John Berger, 1980
It is work and it can also be play, a way of communicating with other species and with the landscape. Any work, any kind of play, any experience naturally changes the participant, and what I want to consider here is how the experience of restoration might be expected to transform the restorationist.
