Source Press was founded to encourage alternative ways of living and to offer alternative forums for info-exchange. We believe that every day, people are finding new and old ways to live in connection with food, land, place and their neighbors. We want to document these stories and strategies from the Bay Area and we believe that zines are the most effective way to do this. At Source Press we print and distribute skill and information based zines, host zine-making workshops, keep a zine library and offer an online archive of our publications. We are interested in dispensing inspiration, information and resources outside of institutional frameworks and consumer relationships.

Source Press is a project that evolved from Source, a two person collective project. Together we published four zines (with the help of many awesome folks). We taught free workshops in parks, bartered plants on the sidewalk, planted seeds, hosted a foraged feast, wheat pasted about plants and wore a lot of costumes. You can check out photos of many our events here.
