Crystal Arnold helps others define financial success in their own terms & cultivate true wealth. She is the founder of Money-Morphosis, the director of education at the Post Growth Institute, & is a money-wise woman & mother. Isn’t it odd that as important as money is in shaping our lives & the rules Western society, most people have a hard time talking about it? This has to do with our stories around money. In this interview Crystal talks about how she defines wealth, the ways in which our monetary system affects our world, local economies, not–for–profits, the role of women in shifting our economic story & more. Crystal inspires us to look at economy in new & resilient ways. We hope you find this interview inspiring too.

Special thanks to Crystal Arnold, The Post-Growth Institute, & our non-profit umbrella organization E.L.L.S.S.A.

Here are some stories that come straight from the garden – the school garden. We collected these stories when The Story Connective was invited to do a Story Bridge workshop with Grow Some Good, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating hands-on, outdoor learning experiences in schools. Our participants - garden coordinators, administrators, & board members - were prompted to talk about a time they experienced in the garden that a child will never forget. We can't wait to share with you the heartfelt stories that emerged.

Special thanks to Grow Some Good & the Maui Arts & Cultural Center for helping make this Story Bridge possible. And thank you to our tellers: Bradley, Jadda, Kathy, Maurice, Judy, & Cynthia. Special thanks as well to Richard Geer, the founder of The Story Bridge Method & Qinghong Wei, Story Bridge's executive director, & the Story Bridge Team for all your community & support.

In this episode, we asked folks to talk about a significant moment in their lives around food, eating, & meals. We brought the Story Bridge Method to a local acting class for senior citizens in our community. Story Bridge is a community storytelling & performance method that has been used for decades all over the world to strengthen dozens of communities. The method guides a group of people to tell stories from their own lives & to deeply listen to other participants' stories. All the participants connected & laughed as they shared stories around this prompt: "Talk about a meaningful moment in your life that occurred in a kitchen, dining room, or cafeteria." The stories were first told in pairs, then in groups or 4, & ultimately, the participants selected some of these stories to be shared with the world via this podcast! The following four stories are true. Each of these stories cast a light – illuminating our shared human experience for everyone to see.

Special thanks to Maui Academy of Performing Arts & Mālamalama Maui for hosting this Talk Story Exchange gathering. Special thanks as well to Richard Geer, the founder of The Story Bridge Method & Qinghong Wei, Story Bridge's executive director, & the Story Bridge Team for all your community & support.

A lot of land is legally zoned to be producing more food than it currently is. If these properties had the support to be in food production, they could literally add tons of food to the food system. Common Ground Collective is a non-profit that has been designed to make it easy for people grow more food on their own property. They will employ mobile farmers with the skills & passion to transform unproductive land into blossoming small farms, & they will also provide the administrative & marketing support to get the crops to buyers, & the profits to the landowners. Our guests today think in possibilities. Terese, Jen, & Nick have formed Common Ground Collective, a new non-profit run by an intelligent, determined young group of masterminds who are advocating solutionary ways of addressing the gaps in their local food system. Their mission is also to educate folks about regenerative land care practices, healthier lifestyles, & growing food. By helping small landowners produce more food on their land, Common Ground Collective is designed to yield multiple benefits for their community. We hope you enjoy this edition of our series of episodes called Re-envision Maui, about an ongoing transition on the island of Maui.

Katrina Blair is the author of The Wild Wisdom of Weeds, a forager’s guide to ultimate food security. Few people have sparked my imagination more about what it means to be resilient than Katrina Blair. In her book she identifies 13 global survival plants – commonly considered weeds in American Culture – that are nutritious, medicinal, improve soil health, & naturally grow in abundance with absolutely no human effort. These plants grow everywhere humans live– from the Arctic Circle to the dry hot desert, & are free & accessible to everyone. The book also has over 100 recipes for how to use these plants for food, medicine, & self care. At Turtle Lake Refuge Café in Durango, Colorado, Katrina & her friends serve up culinary dishes of wild-harvested, fresh, living foods. The proceeds from the café benefit Turtle Lake Refuge’s mission of celebrating the connection between personal health & wild lands.

There is something really special about stories that come from our own geography - from the people with whom we share a culture of place. How amazing would it be if every town & city had a practice of gathering to share stories?! Well, for this episode, we used the Story Bridge Method to guide a group of people through a Talk Story Exchange in Wailuku, Maui. Participants were given a prompt: "Talk about a time when something radically changed in your home, yourself, or your community." Each person shared a story from their own individual lives & deeply listened to other participants' stories. This podcast is a selection of true stories we heard that night from members of our local community.

Special thanks to Maui Academy of Performing Arts & Mālamalama Maui for hosting & sponsoring this Talk Story Exchange gathering in Wailuku, Maui.

In this episode we tell you a lesser-known fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen about a melodious songbird during the Industrial Revolution. “The Nightingale” was originally published in 1843, as the machines of the Industrial Revolution were appearing in greater numbers around the world, & as engineers & philosophers were singing the praises of their advancement. In this story, Andersen masterfully juxtaposes the emergence of the machines of his time with this story about a modest melodious songbird. This story touches on themes & symbolism including life, death, nature, art & society, human progress, & -of course- resilience. 

This is the first time on this podcast we are delving into myth, & folktale, & we’re pretty excited about it. Mythology & story symbolism can connect & inspire us in deep ways.
