A Suspension of Reason in the Face of Food Harvest: Finding Meaning in the Act of Conforming
- 146 Downloads
This chapter explores the story of finding growth with the limits of knowledge. It is a reflection on how despair and hopefulness helped me to find absurd ways to live and breach the boundaries of what is known as food harvest. This story challenges the notion that we are bound to the oppressive American food paradigm that creates a culture of poverty. This culture of poverty makes it very difficult to harvest food because of the politics of food consumerism. This chapter ends with a guiding heuristic that serves to stimulate a conversation around food.
