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.

Resilience

A week after our big winter storm and we still have a decent amount of "wintery mix" on the ground. I had let the last of my fall vegetables go, thinking they would die off over the holidays. Though showing some obvious signs of damage, they are still chugging along. With a little pruning they might turn out just fine.

Resilience. A fitting theme for a day set aside to remember the struggles of the civil rights movement.
