Since 2001, greenmuseum.org has been helping people create, present and appreciate art that heals our relationship with the natural world.*  This online museum offers a wealth of information about artists who are doing exciting and innovative work that directly speaks to the environmental issues of our time. In this podcast, Arts & Healing Network Director Mary Daniel Hobson interviews Sam & Anne, core team members of greenmuseum.org about the environmental art movement, giftivism, generosity and advice for artists wanting to engage the natural world. Recently, greenmuseum.org has begun pioneering a new approach to sustainability as an organization by adopting a gift economy model, and so their entire organization is now run by volunteers.

*2018 - sadly, greenmusuem.org is no longer in operation
