Our Friendship Gardens: Healing Our Mother, Ourselves
Prakash, Madhu Suri
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v10 n1 p177-185 Mar 2015
Embracing the best ideals of Victory Gardens, this essay celebrates Friendship Gardens. The latter go further: collapsing the dualisms separating victors from losers. Friendships that transcend differences and honor diversity are among the many fruits and organic gifts harvested and shared in the commons created by Friendship Gardens. This essay shares the hope of transforming enemies into friends and neighbors. It also joins many millions whose dreams are already taking flight while getting grounded: seeking to transform all our toxic lawnscapes into foodscapes; ending the disease of billions going to bed starving amidst the mountains of food wasted for growing Wall Street profits in the twenty first century.
