“Stories are for people what water is for plants” Linda Hogan, “Power”

After 4 years of sitting fallow, As of March 2020 the project is back. 

The vision for Over Grow The System is to create an effective and compelling platform that can empower and activate people across social spectrums, while also addressing the real issues and challenges that the world faces today. A platform that can inspire people to reclaim their freedom and their power from the cultural mechanisms of control and complacency in order to live more in balance with the cycles and systems of the natural world.

Our Values

  • Live simply - cultivating a consciousness shift to see that doing with less actually improves quality of life rather than compromising it
  • Right livelihood - our work should be in service to the natural world (that includes humans)
  • Community - our work should empower and build community
  • Inspired - live a life that is inspired and in turn inspire others
  • Action - take action in the world and empower others to do the same

It is these stories that Over Grow the System has set out tell through video, photography and the written word.
Over the last 3 years of creating Over Grow The System, my full energy and focus has went into creating this network to tell the stories of those who are growing the change that many of us know the world needs.  It has been an amazing journey, seeing me live on farms all over the west coast of North America, and sharing the stories of those who are creating and living the change in the world that myself and many others see as needed if we are to live in a healthy, symbiotic relation to the natural world around us.
