In the forest there is no such thing as garbage! Everything works together without harming anybody. They find ways to get along because they need each other. Pierre talks about how people can learn to think like a forest.

We see that all living things have a right to live their lives, too. We see how to live together, and we see how to run a business - all by thinking like a forest.

Blue Spruce Hollow, Episode I:
Architect David Hartke showed Pierre his environmentally conscious new home, under construction in Doylestown Pennsylvania. The home is to become a LEED-Certified or 'Green' dwelling with many energy and environmentally-friendly features.
South-facing, the home gains much from solar orientation. Large sheltered porch living spaces will provide several 3-season rooms. The home uses little/no large timbers, relying instead on strong composite materials made from fast-growing woods.
