Cecilia Macaulay

Permaculture Designer

Cecilia designs ecosystems.  Actually, they pretty much assemble themselves, she just works out what creature, idea, or object is missing, and puts it in.    

She works mostly in Japan, helping re-set the culture of children’s homes, art schools, share houses and Ecovillages. The aim is creating satisfying connections, getting rid of unwilling, unproductive effort, and working with, not against, each other's quintessential nature and talents.

With buddy Mark Garratt, she designed a self-maintaining food forest for Richard Branson’s Necker island. She consults for organisations with big ambitions and no known way to achieve them, such as Tarronga Conservation Society. 

She’s convinced you have ten times more things in your house than is good for you, not nearly enough people, and that if you allowed her to get her hands on it, your home would be transformed into a Zen Fairyland Resort everyone wants to hide out in.
