Alabama Chanin Makes It” from @gardenandgun 

Read Garden & Gun’s recent interview with Natalie celebrating the arrival of her new book (and coinciding events tour).

“‘I wish there was a way to go back and soothe the younger me,’ says Natalie Chanin, whose gorgeous new book celebrates two decades of soulful Southern style” —CJ Lotz for Garden & Gun

Many thanks to CJ and our friends at Garden & Gun for the lovely conversation and beautiful piece. xo



Read our interview with Dianna Settles, an artist, activist, and maker who lives and creates in the company of a large community on an urban farm in Atlanta, Georgia. 

“A life worth living is one where you and, not only the people immediately around you, but people in the broadest sense, have access to what is needed to elaborate a good life in as many ways as possible. This could include working with the land to unlearn centuries of lawns and nonsensical landscaping in place of rehabilitating lost savannas and biodiversity, building homes, dojos, and other communal buildings, growing food, hunting, practicing martial arts or other ways of knowing and expanding the limits of our bodies, mending and constructing the garments that carry us through our lives and give us joy and meaning, gaining an understanding of how to care for our own bodies, the list goes on and on. A life worth living is stealing as many moments for and towards that kind of life from the one that de-potentiates its existence.” —Dianna Settles
