food and gender
Sunday, May 11 is Mother's Day, a day reserved for showing appreciation to the maternal figures in our lives. I would suggest that each of us can find countless ways that we 'mother' and are 'mothered' within our own communities. We provide many forms of care for those we birthed, adopted or raised, those we love, those we know and often those we don't know. We 'mother' each other as well as our non-human companions, our communities and our gardens. We nourish bodies, minds and souls, spaces and sprouts. And in return, we can be 'mothered' in so many ways by so many others.
