In this interview I had the pleasure of speaking with Janell Kapoor, founder of both Kleiwerks International. and the Ashevillage Sanctuary. Janell has been teaching natural building workshops all over the world since 1997 and founded Kleiwerks Intl. in 2004. She also ran some of the first earthen building trainings in Thailand, Argentina, and Turkey. Since 2006 she has been renovating and building the site of the Ashevillage sanctuary by reclaiming materials from the waste stream and using natural materials from the site. Since then Ashevillage has become a model ecological learning center and demonstration site that offers a wide range of regenerative living skills courses and workshops. In this interview Janell talks about the mission and intent behind Ashevillage, how she found ways to design systems that bring humans and nature together, her incredible work empowering and working with women, and much more. Janell has been one of my biggest inspirations since I got started in the regenerative living world and her experience and insights do not disappoint.
