The Scoop

Landship Foods is inspired by the conviction that growing and eating healthy food is one of the most important things we can do for both ourselves and the broader communities of which we are a part. The name comes from the language of pre-industrial Europe. Before the enclosure movement and the associated rise in notions of private property swept England, the suffix “-ship” (as in "relationship," or "friendship") referred to an object or an abstraction with collective duties and mutual rights. Thus, the term “landship” suggests that land was an entity through which humans were joined to each other by a set of rights and responsibilities. I advocate for a revival of this awareness.

2014 Olympics: Atlanta?


For those of you who thought I was exaggerating about our "cold" Georgia winter, evidence of last night's storm. The snow started to accumulate in the late afternoon, so by happy hour the conditions were ripe for an epic snowball battle. I enjoy a good dusting as much as anyone, but it seems that this will likely postpone our plantings even more...
While the world's best winter athletes sit around waxing their skis and sharpening their skates in balmy British Columbia, the deep South is blanketed in snow. Perhaps in 2014 Atlanta will claim the mantle of first city to host both the summer and winter Olympics. I've been training for the biathlon, just in case (and, no, my new-found interest has nothing to do with this year's Canadian women's team )!

When I was in high school some company started making t-shirts that read, "Canadian girls kick ass." I, of course, bought one and wore it proudly - through my second year of college (in Vancouver no less). After Levi's post, however, I am beginning to think that it might be time to resurrect the "Canadian girls kick ass" moto. These ladies got it goin' on!

And on a side note, watching the Olympics on US television is amazing. I've already watched several horrendous Canadian culture vignettes and have been subjected to countless Canadian celebrity-endorsements of what it is to call this place home. Let the games begin!

Venus - Do Canadians spell the synonym for slogan "moto"? Or is that just a rare typo from a U. Chicago PhD? If the latter, Kate Turabian is probably disappointed...

Busted. I suppose that would be "motto." And as for the Chicago Manual of Style, well, we've never been that tight.

I'm off to cheer the Canadian Olympic women's hockey team to victory!
