Hello! I'm Atulya K Bingham, natural builder and author of The Mud Home website, plus the Mud Mountain/Earth Whispering blogs. A huge thank you for making it to this Patreon page, and supporting me and The Mud Home. It is an action of the heart, and I'm deeply grateful to every patron.

For five years, I have shared the vast majority of my work and knowledge for free. The Mud Home website offers oodles of information and inspiration on building with mud, low impact off-grid living, and my personal insights into a more fulfilling life connected to nature. The free Mud Earthbag Building PDF has been downloaded over 15000 times from people all over the world; from Texas to Mumbai, and from Istanbul to Melbourne. I've answered hundreds of questions on earthbag building and plaster, also giving my time for free.

I have always kept my site advert free, because I refuse to support or send traffic to unethical, ecocidal corporations, but the fact is websites, internet connections, technology, email lists, all require money invested upfront. And the more traffic I get, the more it costs me. With an email list now about to top 10000, I'm at a cross roads. While I love running my blog, it is a full time job, and expensive. Unfortunately, I have to make some choices.

When you give to me via Patreon, you allow the Mud Home site and the blogs to continue so that others can download my free PDFs and books. You also help sustain me, so that I can continue to share my experience in the field. Finally, you are expressing that what I have created over the past six years has some sort of value, either for you personally or for the planet as a whole. 

What’s in it for you? I believe in win win situations and hope we can all help each other here. By pledging, you become a more intimate member of The Mud Home. Mud Patrons enjoy a number of perks (see the rewards on this post), email priority, a Facebook group where you can get more in depth help from me, publicity for a project, and a network to find volunteers or course participants.

Once again, a heart-felt thank you and a warm, earthy hug for your support and encouragement.

Goals
$434 of $750 per month
Thank you! You are now funding an expanded email list, a virtual assistant, web hosting and web site platform costs. Once we reach $750 you will be half sustaining me (I'm pretty cheap to run). I love running the site and community, but it is a full time job now, so thank you for helping to pay for some of my time so that I can buy basics like food, gasoline and health care.
