Remembering the Power of our Own Hands: Interview with Kimberly Coburn
So many of us are longing to just make something with our hands, to get back in touch with the basic human desires of years past to plant, make and create. Kimberly Coburn has created an initiative that does just that, but with intention: connecting people with ways to learn sustainable, back-to-Earth skills through Homestead Atlanta. Join us for this interview on her role in the movement away from consumerism, globalism and materialism back to human-scaled living and self-reliance. This work is a key component of our massive shift in consciousness to an age of unity, shared understanding and coming from a place of love for each other and for the Earth. May this inspire us all to share food with a neighbor, grow some veggies in our yards or just learn how to knit. It will fuel our souls and our hearts in more ways than we know.
Kimberly Coburn is an Atlanta-born, Atlanta-based writer, organizer, and educator. She has spearheaded several grassroots initiatives connecting individuals with the local food movement as well as serving on the board of local and national sustainability nonprofits. In 2013, Kimberly founded The Homestead Atlanta, an education initiative dedicated to fostering resilient communities through self-reliance and sustainability education. She was honored in 2015 as a National Arts Strategies Creative Community fellow and has undertaken personal studies with internationally renowned leaders including Joanna Macy.
