Let's Share Space...
Designing African centered crafts, textiles and adventures.
Over the next few years I will be focusing on creating a space for like minds to congregate on the land that I own in Asheville, North Carolina. We have a list of needs like a Bobcat tractor, goat fencing and chicken coop building. I am encouraging all able bodies to join me and Brit in holding sacred space together on this land. There are many ways that you may be able to assist in these efforts. I welcome you to contact me with any ideas you have or ways you believe you may be of service. Thank you so much!   ~Yeye
