    1835 – Natural Building, Community, and Opportunity with Clare Kenny of The Mudgirls

    Clare Kenny of The Mudgirls Natural Building Collective joins me to continue our conversation about how she and the other of the group come together to create community and opportunity with natural building, and the lessons they share through The Mudgirls Manifesto, a book they wrote together which was released earlier this year.

    From those broad themes we also narrow in on what it is like to create our own models and live differently, knowing we have allies in the world who are there to help us, but may not be able to guide us. Through our role as leaders, facilitators, and educators, we can make our knowledge and skills more accessible by looking for different ways of doing and enrich our own lives and those of others.

    Though we talked about it early on in this conversation, in Clare’s message I’m reminded of something mentioned before on the show:

    You are not alone.

    Someone, somewhere, is working on a similar project or problem as you are, but in this broad and disparate world we can lose that sometimes. Not knowing who to reach out to or where to find those kindred spirits. They are out there and Iā€™m here to help connect you with them, whether you hear them in an interview, or want to reach out so I can help you find them.

    From here the next episode is an interview with Kanyon Coyote Woman, as co-host David Bilbrey sits down to speak with her about Indian Canyon and Indigenous Traditions.

    Until the next time, spend each day creating the world you want to live in by taking care of earth, yourself, and each other.
