Molly Murphy and David Peck talk about The Mudgirls Building Initiative, patriarchy, capitalism, applied activism, patience and problem solving and why its important not to leave anyone behind.


The Mudgirls are a network of women builders on the west coast of BC, Canada. They specialize in using local, natural and recycled materials and can be hired to build with you or for you and to create whatever your heart desires. They are experienced in building everything from cob cabins, ovens and benches to installing natural insulation, earthen floors and wall plasters in any style of home.

The Mudgirls live and work in Vancouver, Nanaimo, Saltspring Island, Denman Island, Lasqueti island and the Sunshine Coast.
