This newest volume from our sister organization Greenhorns, ‘Adjustments & Accommodations,’ seeks to recognize our collective agency in the face of sizable uncertainties. The book considers the morphing climate, an ongoing culture of land dispossession, the continuing global pandemic, shifting and intensifying weather patterns, and migrations of all species, as spurned by political and environmental upheaval.
Contributors from around the Earth reflect on natural systems, logistics of change, localization, resource sharing, and preservation. The past is contextualized by the present, informing our ideas for the future. Climate grief and cognitive dissonance are examined among imaginations of urban food systems and equitable access. Readers are invited to envision tweaks to the carbon cycle; to see intercropping as a life practice; and sharing dinner as an embodied preservation of cultural foodways.
