Last month, while urban farming and foraging for sour cherries, I listened to Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Not long after, Adrienne Maree Brown posted the following pull quotes to instagram, and shared her reflection that this book could be read as a prequel or foundational text for her own work, Emergent Strategy. I couldn't agree more, both texts are gifts. Braiding Sweetgrass is a work of understanding our place in society and our responsibility to our ecological home. It's definitely worth a read, a way to come home to this land offering new teachers in the species we coexist with. Enjoy these quotes from Kimmerer, curated by Brown:
We offer so much gratitude for both these women, and all Black and Indigenous teachers, for their work and wisdom. Miigwech!
