WHAT

The importance of food - where it comes from, how far it travels to us, for and by whom, and how it is grown - cannot be understated. So many issues - clean water, air, carbon capture, mental, physical and spiritual health - intersect in our food system.

 

Our future on this planet depends on us treating her with love and respect. Giving back, thinking cyclically, regeneratively, these must be the ideas on which we base our future relationship to the earth.

 

When I asked Sylvia Harrison Ganier of Greendoor Gourmet Farm what is the ONE THING she wished people knew and understood about growing food naturally without chemicals it was: time. It just takes time.

 

We need to allow food, and therefore ourselves, as long as it takes to germinate and grow into nourishment. We know how to grow food this way. It is ancient wisdom. We know how to make allowances for ourselves and for others. It is a choice.

 

At the Brooklyn Heights Community Garden, Ms. Pearl has created a space where all are invited to pitch in, get their hands dirty, and learn and grow. She envisioned the healing power of the garden and made it a reality. The earth can heal us. We can heal the earth. This is ancient wisdom. This is our choice.

THE WHICH HOUSE BELIEVES

Art has transformative power.

Humans at their core tend toward kindness, compassion and cooperation.

We live in a world of systems which instead support oppression, fear, and competition.

Changing these systems requires a change in perspective for many humans.

Art has transformative power.

THE WHICH HOUSE ETHOS

Changing multi-faceted, intersectional problems requires perspective changes which are equally multi-faceted and intersectional

"We will not go back to normal. Normal never was.

Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack.

We should not long to return, my friends.

 

We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature"
