Among other things, I am a homeschooling mom, craftsperson and homesteader, who is inspired by the
traditions of other cultures to revitalize and share skills useful to everyday life. In an effort to deepen my
connection to the land and limit my participation in consumer culture, I strive to grow, craft and participate
in seasonal harvests for as many of my needs and wants as possible. I am also grateful to be part of a
generous community of talented makers and growers with whom I trade skills, ideas and wares. I use hand
harvested resources from the forest, letting the qualities of varying materials dictate their use. We all hold
the capacity for positive change in the world and even the smallest steps toward reclaiming agency over our
lives and wellbeing reverberate far beyond what we can see and know.
