Holistic means Whole-Culture

education, ecology, economy, science, art, etc.

I use the word "holistic"
not to narrowly mean herbal medicines alone,
but yes to broadly mean whole culture, including economy, education, science, art, the ways we live and learn and work (EEE System), relationships with people, relationships with nature, etc.

If something has the quality of being "holistic" that means that it relates to and supports everything basic that people and communities need: food, water, shelter, nature and science, art and community, economy and ecology, community and culture, love, joy, peace, morals, and overall health (moral, mental, physical, economic, social, environmental, and healing).

A "holistic" skill, task, and activity is beneficial in many ways, and not in just one way or a few ways. Holistic means that it's simultaneously beneficial in many ways including to people's health, safety, morals, education, long-term economy, culture, science, art, awareness, love, peace, joy, and more. An example skill, task, or activity that is not holistic is beneficial in only one or a few ways, such as only making short-term money, and meanwhile ruining people's safety, health, long-term economy, education, skillfulness, peace, harmony, fun, and the health of nature.  

In education, a "holistic" class or "holistic" book is interdisciplinary. A holistic class or book acknowledges that everything is connected to everything else. Holistic action and study look at how one thing or one school subject connects with and affects everything else. Holistic means that each skill, task, lesson, and activity, such as in education, is interdisciplinary and beneficial in multiple ways — and not in just one way, and not related to just one school subject. Holistic means that each skill, task, lesson, and activity is beneficial in many ways, simultaneously, including to people's health, safety, culture, education, ecology, economy, science, art, morals, love, peace, joy, nature, communities, government, language, science, social studies, math, and more.

"Holistic" means sustainable and enriching. Holistic means that its simultaneously helping people’s culture, education, ecology, economy, and more (people’s health, joy, fun, morals, peace, harmony, government, science, art, community functionality,
community cohesion, etc.), as well as takes care of the whole community landscape. Holistic means that its simultaneously helping culture, education, ecology, economy, and more to be sustainable and enriching.

Holistic: Whole Culture and Education of Science, Art, Ecology, and Economy.
The most important education for children is holistic community education: learning how to take care of people, nature, and functional communities with education-ecology-economy systems (EEE System) with sustainable local economies, nested in larger economies. In school, children can learn academics, but also they must mostly learn about their community, including interdisciplinary lessons of how science, art, ecology, and economy holistically relate to each other and to the local community.

Holistic Sustainability

including 40 Sustainable Categories
Let's sustain and enrich communities, people, and nature. Let's have an education that teaches students how to run sustainable communities and an economy that are mutually beneficial to both people and nature.
Sustainability includes recycling, reusable bags, shopping local, organic food, and renewable energies. Yet, sustainability deals with more than food, money, energy, and technology. Sustainability also deals with communities, culture, nature, the outdoors, education, community economics, morals (connection and helping others: both people and nature), a mix of self-sufficiency and community cooperation, science, art, creativity, being holistic, and more.
