"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver

The winter break gave me some time to reorganize photos and uncover new patterns of thinking. This is a project I created for Ecological Thought during my first PhD intensive last summer, that I'm re-sharing now. It's good to remember, here in the thick of this ice-crusted New England winter, the warmth of climate and spirit I encountered in Iquitos, Peru. Ponder and enjoy.
