The Masters of Succession Collective presents
The Beneficial Mudball Beneficial Ball
A Celebration of Bioremediation & Symbiosis
At the Mudball Ball, a community garden will turn into Mud Village for one afternoon. It is a Bioremediation Participation Celebration, a space to create lifestyles of bioremediation of which have a by-product of human well-being.
You are invited to adventure with the Masters of Succession into one of Mud Village’s Ephemeral Piazzas—the social, merchant center of the village. The village is off-the-grid and uses locally sourced food and goods as much as possible. We will show some of our favorite things to do that helps create the by-product of healthy water, air and soil.
At a Mudball Ball, we put on ball gowns and dance in our mud boots. We eat oysters, make mud balls, sow seeds to the sounds of birds and live music. We also learn about the good microbes in the mud balls, learn about the toxins plants take-up whose seeds are in seed balls. We learn about mycoremediation with mushrooms, we crush oyster shells, stomp on cob to make bricks, eat raw oysters, dance in hula hoop mud ball gowns, and get a hair cut. We clean beaches, throw wild flower seed balls, bring back monarch butterflies, drink fermented refreshments, make and cook on a rocket stove, trench bokashi food waste, try delicious detox teas, jazz procession to the river to through spent shells and hang an oyster garden.
In all of this wild creative beingness we are leaving not no trace but a better trace.
• Participant Submission Form for the next ball.
Each time participants will be placed in Mud Village next to the resource (by-product) that might be useful to their activity. We hope to create a domino effect.

The Night Before Maker Party
We will help you make seed bombs, beneficial mud ball gowns, decorate umbrellas for the second line dance, paper or natural hats that have kale seeds in them to plant after use, umbrella dresses, bouncy bike hoop mini skirts and tube tops. Bring 3 hula hoops, two 4 yds length of very light fabric for your mud ball gown or pick up a gown at a flea market.
All the projects presented at the Mudball Ball can also be part of MoS Town At Figment Project every June. The balls we make at The Mud Ball are for the “The Stockpile Of Beneficial Mud Balls” at Figment. It is a fun and educational throwing. We are usually next to Castle William by the water.
