       ecological building for over 30 years. Named a Green Design Trailblazer by

       of straw, earth, and “good wood” and consulted on schools, healing centers,
       and eco-villages. Her first book, Healing Environments: Your Guide to Indoor
       Well-Being, advocates restoring the vital connections between humans and the
       rest of the living world. In addition to her architectural practice, Carol directs
       the EcoDwelling program at New College of California and writes the “Design

       the western United States. In 2005, Natural Home Magazine named her one of
