The Earth Mother Intentional Community was originally founded in Midland, Texas in 1986 as a Permaculture based Cottage Enterprise Village. It evolved when the Ubuntu movement rose out of South Africa in the 90’s and found further direction with the rise of the Transition Towns movement that was born in England a few years afterward. The Resource Based Economy Movement added our internal structure which birthed our “Studio Grounds and Synergy HUB” complexes. Two separate Locations serving the entire community, yet with different objectives. We have functioned well with this infrastructure for the last 37 years, tweaking and fine-tuning as we grew.

The Studio Grounds hold the Agricultural Research Institute, Community Gardens, a Music Recording Studio, an Artisan Teaching Village, Community Library/Education Network, Community Building with Rec Room and Commercial Kitchen, outdoor stages and campgrounds with a tiny house village for private personal space, etc. The HUB, a condensed version of the Studio Grounds, was established within the City limits, and serves as Communal Living/Workspace for the Community Directors.

Over the Winter/Spring of 2022/23, our founding member, Shawnda Clawson, retired from her 35 year position as Executive Director of this amazing Community. She has now settled into spending her cherished “Golden Years” teaching these systems online. Now, rebranded as the #EarthMotherNetwork – we have joined the OneWorld.Earth Community in their goal to establish a “A Deep Beloved Community of Networks with a Global Influence “

The failure of the whole range of interlocked systems that has maintained and supported this industrial society has become crystal clear. The ecological challenges we face and where we are headed as a civilization are daunting. Together we must be the lens that critically explores the problems and creates the tools to generate resilient solutions.

We here at Earth Mother have created a Space to address these issues.
