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.

Country Come to Town

I recently got back from my first trip to NYC ever. Its funny how many people (both here and there) expressed incredulity when I told them I had never been to NYC before...I was there for a geography conference but also got to spend some time with old friends.

Some random photos and partial thoughts:

Me and my old roommate and great friend Blake Scott at an interesting sculpture in the Brooklyn botanical garden.

Graffiti on a for-rent storefront protests the yuppi-fication of the Nolita neighborhood.

For some reason there is a replica of the statue of liberty in the parking lot of the Brooklyn Museum. Can anyone explain this to me?
