In the first half of my GP career I watched and shared people’s struggles, joys, loves and miseries whilst being a husband and father of two children, and creating a garden by nudging nature into revealing her wonders. I was awe-struck by my patients’ resilience and by their lack of it. In the second half I began to study and understand the limits of medicine and the wonders of nature, and how the latter can inform the former. This turned out to be preparation for the KAN experiment. Website: www.keynshamactionnetwork.co.uk .
