I'm a spitfire Chicana writer, artist, farmer, musician, and ecofeminist cheerleader for #womenwriters.
My mission is to help women find the time, space, and support to write your stories and share them with the world.
I offer a series of online courses that combine my expertise in permaculture, movement-based trauma recovery, and the Heroine's Journey to help you develop a joyful, productive daily practice that will lead you to your goals and connect you with the community that needs and values your work. I use art, yoga, storytelling, permaculture, and land-based creative expression to help people tap into their creative potential.
I have a BA in Permaculture Pedagogy, an Interdisciplinary MFA focused on the many layers of a Heroine's Journey, and over 20 years of hands-on experience as a designer, teacher, working artist and community leader.
I wrote Food Not Lawns, How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden and Your Neighborhood into a Community in 2006, and founded the original collective, in 1999. I've written a novel as well, you can get it for free when you join my mailing list.
