"Plant Power: How the Growing Food Sovereignty Movement is Empowering Communities" – LAIKA Magazine – Issue 6

Last year my friend Julie Gueraseva and I co-wrote an article in LAIKA Magazine about the food sovereignty movement and the potential it holds for lifting up marginalized communities, developing viable alternatives to corporatized frankenfood and building real democracy. I spotlighted Vieques, Puerto Rico-based Finca Conciencia in the piece. Recovering as they are from Hurricanes Maria and Irma, I wanted to draw some attention to the piece, in hopes it will help educate about the colonial nature of the United States' relationship to Puerto Rico, in addition to highlighting Finca Conciencia's amazing work.
