*This workshop is meant specifically for people of color, and privileges queer, trans and low income folks within those identities*
You know those trees that grow out of the sidewalk, with the random unnamed fruit hanging from them? Ever wonder if you could eat them?
Everything we consume comes from the earth; even the most processed food comes from somewhere. And as we as a society wake up to the realization that local, natural food is good for your health, said food becomes more expensive, inaccessible, and reserved for the shelves at Whole Foods. This workshop, taught by dope forager Liana MacNeilll, seeks to remind us that grocery stores are not our God. We can, and have, and will provide for ourselves, any way we can, and have already been doing so.
While Maryland is not native to all of us, we have all made a home of it, as complex of a home as that might be. We must learn all of the resources it is gracious enough to provide us, and bring those resources into our already existent cultural communities. Hopefully we can search together for loving, authentic ways to give and receive the abundance this stretch of the world has offered us.
