What would it taste like for our families and communities to decolonize our diets at this moment in time? What revolutions in industrial practice must we incite so we can nourish the palettes of our future generations with vibrance and power? We’ll cover food justice, seed saving, food sovereignty, the biotech industry’s attempts to monopolize agriculture, food deserts, recipes as knowledge production, culinary appropriation, and more. Join us in this interactive & intimate season reclaiming our taste buds & foodways- it’ll be our most delicious yet.


Decolonize Maiz by Ernesto Yerena Montejano (with permission)

Liberation Spring is exactly what I was looking for before I dared let myself imagine it: a space where my full self is welcomed, nourished, necessary. A place to unlearn and learn that centers indigenous women and women of color’s genius and is fiercely decolonial. A community dedicated to healing from violent paradigms that would have us separate our minds from our bodies from our spirits from each other. A project whose aim is nothing less than our collective liberation. An invitation to step into my/our power, grow my/our knowledge and skills, and set my/our imaginations wild and free. Because we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. So what are we waiting for? – T.A.
