“Nature Happens Here”

We are kicking off Season 4 of It Still Lives with an interview from with art lover, gardener, and author Mignon Durham to talk about her passion project Devotion and how it helped her cope with the uncertainty we faced during 2020. Listen as Foxfire curator Kami Ahrens and Blue Ridge Public Radio regional reporter Lilly Knoepp talk with Mignon about her experiences in Appalachia and creating a space in our community that honors the culture here.

Our Covid-19 Oral History Project is ongoing, and we are always accepting new submissions to our archive. Share your experiences during the pandemic, whether it’s an oral history, a video, a journal entry, or a piece of art. Learn more at .foxfire.org/covid19/

This interview was originally recorded in November 2021. Read the transcript here.
