About the Event
Join us for a powerful live conversation with Rebecca Mesritz & Angell Deer on the opportunities & challenges of building communities. Hear from first-hand people who are passionate about re-building our interconnectedness with land, plants, people and ancient teachings.
Inside Community Podcast host Rebecca Mesritz is a community builder living in Williams, Oregon.
In 2011, Rebecca co-founded the Emerald Village (EVO) in North County San Diego, California. During her ten years with EVO, she supported and led numerous programs and initiatives including implementation and training of the community in Sociocracy, establishment of the Animal Husbandry program, leadership of the Land Circle, hosting both internal and external community events, and participation in the Human Relations Circle which holds the relational, spiritual and emotional container for their work.
In June of 2021, with the blessing of EVO, Rebecca and 3 other co-founders relocated to begin a new, mission- driven community and learning center housed on 160 acres of forest and farmland.
Rebecca is passionate about communal living and sees intentional community as a tool for both personal and cultural transformation.
In addition to her work in this field, she also holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from San Diego State University and creates functional, public, and interactive art in metal, wood, and pretty much any other material she can get her hands on. She's currently growing Bound for Color, creating and selling bespoke and naturally dyed art, homegoods and wearables.
She is a mother, a wife, an educator, a nurturer of gardens, an epicurean lover of sustainable wholesome food, and a cultivator of compassion and beauty.
