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.

A few months ago a friend gave me some extra collard starts that he had, so I dug up a new, small bed right outside the back door for 'em. And now I have a huge pile that will cook down into a reasonable size for a potluck I am going to tonight.
My dog was a little confused about what happened to them, though...
