- Round 17
Planting Justice, Blooming Abolition
The employees at the Planting Justice nursery have been collaborating with three local artists to create a large-scale, farm-wide installation exploring the power of community and growing food to bolster healing, power, and belonging as people return home from prison. For almost three years weekly workshops have germinated creativity, joy, and a huge body of art that is almost ready to be installed. The project is an exploration in practicing abolitionist values and affirming leadership that reconnects community members to land after incarceration.
