Summary

"Glen Ochre had a tough, wild and courageous life. As a Child of the Earth raised deep in the bush of central NSW, she was inspired by the systems of collaboration in the natural world. Glen encountered many setbacks as she forged her own path in life, but from Mother Earth she drew the strength to act with love. Her experience of violence, poverty and discrimination from a young age stirred her passion for a just, nonviolent and sustainable world. These forces shaped Glen's work as an activist, feminist, facilitator and educator, and her determination to find better ways of living and working together. Glen was a great innovator in the movement for social change that swept the world from her teenage years. It was her vision that brought together the team that established the Commonground Co-operative intentional community and the Groupwork Institute of Australia. She touched the lives of many people in here 69 years and Glen's footprints and fingerprints are indelibly stamped on her wider community, who carry her work far and wide. This autobiography celebrates the many aspects of Glen's life. May it inspire us to be bold in the service of Mother Earth."--Back cover.
