The Knowledge Project


My Beebalm & Herringbone flower mending piece has taken a journey farther than I could have imagined, across land and ocean to join Rooting (India): The Knowledge Project which connects art, food, and ecology through projects by artists, activists, and farmers from primarily India and the United States. This “knowledge hub,” within an organic garden(with free organic tea served daily) presents photographs, drawings,diagrams, artists’ books, and pamphlets that highlight how communities are redefining their critical needs and devising their own solutions for
long-term sustainability. This exhibition – and its companion show at
Spice Harbour – creates an inviting conversational space to connect,
discuss, and discover potential solutions to ecological, social, and
economic challenges faced by farmers and consumers around the world.
