Roots of Resilience
In keeping with the notion of sankofa—remembering the past in order to move forward—this year’s theme, “Roots of Resilience,” will examine the ways in which sustainability is tradition, not trend. Our grandparents may have grown up on farms, but today, more people than ever are city dwellers and must actively seek reconnection with the land and nature. Resilient gardening practices can serve to bridge our collective past with a greener, more equitable future.
