Humans have been moving with plants as their traveling companions since the beginning of time. Currently, in a period of impactful and reinforcing industrialization, globalization, and strife known as the Anthropocene, this movement has dramatically escalated in tempo and scale. In this presentation, I will address how remembrance embedded in seeds counters destruction of homelands, fragmentation of habitats, and cultural alienation, and how sanctuary is sought in gardening, cooking, and community building.
