We create publications using interviews and community-sourced content to share skills and knowledge amongst partners.


How not what

This interview series delves into the work that people do in the places they live, over time. In an outcomes-oriented world, the focus is usually on results. We aim to flip the script. We focus on the “how” of innovative projects, to learn from each other what our impact can be.



Zines function as a mobile archive of local knowledge. We lead workshops that are an interactive way to recognize the skills that participants have, identify the how-to steps, document them, and add these zines to a growing library of skills that can be brought to any context in which we work.


documentation & Archive

Publications form an archive of our research, share the mission of partner organizations, and promote the goals of projects to neighbors and constituents. They are a way to reflect the process and make projects live on beyond when we are on the ground.
