About Me: i grew up in rural new york but have been traveling for some time. i'm wandering from community to community collecting social frameworks - currently living at a farm in portland, oregon. i love making medicine, growing food, tending animals, gathering songs, critiquing dominant culture, envisioning new ones, reading, and being of use. i hope to refine a set of skills that will enable me to live within and teach about land-based communities.

My Passions: plants, soil, water, sun, music, conversation, crafting, placemaking & the resuscitation of magic

My Challenges: self-doubt

My Vision for the Future: a multiplicity of voices empowered, networks of bartering communities, redefining urban spaces, healthy watersheds, autonomous technologies abound! people feel capable and joyous: self-reliance & local resilience

My Areas of Expertise: gardening, herbalism, roadkill butchering and hide tanning, collage, goat milking

    Hello Anna,

    Welcome to PulseWire.

    I really like the idea of 'wandering from community to community collecting social frameworks'.

    Have you heard of the 'My Story' writing opportunity? The focus is on the topic of 'Land'. I suspect in all your wandering you would have some interesting insights into what land means. Here is the link if you would like to learn more:

    Best wishes,
