Linda Colwell

Part 1 (19:25)

Linda Colwell presents a case for a healthy "civic environment" as one that includes community spaces like school gardens, or other natural areas, that teach us about relationships. She describes how gardens and gardening instruct, and links this concept to the issue of who should own our food and the seeds from which our plant food comes. She concludes by responding to a question about finding balance, and relates how a food system is part of that balancing act.

Part 2 (18:19)

Linda Colwell prefaces this episode with a story about food being alive, and then questions our disconnect from our food system as well as the truism that most of us don't know where our food comes from any more. She characterizes what she sees as a spiritual dimension to eating, epitomized by a 2008 pilgrimage she led to Transylvania called "Theology of the Table," and sheds new light on the term "food activist/ism."
