The Land Institute’s Director of Ecosphere Studies, Aubrey Streit Krug, brings us to Heart Land Prairie Cemetery, where she invites us to reflect upon our own individual places which we have hopefully gotten to know more deeply over the six weeks of Perennial Practice. As we collectively and intentionally work towards building a perennial future, why does your place matter?

The Land Institute’s Director of Ecosphere Studies, Dr. Aubrey Streit Krug introduces us to Silphium integrifolium, The Land Institute’s perennial oilseed crop candidate that we are domesticating with the help of dozens of civic scientists across the U.S. With the act of domesticating a new crop as an example, she invites us to reflect on the other forms of care work we perform and are recipients of on a daily basis.

As we work towards a more just and transformative future, what examples of care work do you hope to see and ignite in your own communities?

The Land Institute’s Director of Ecosphere Studies, Dr. Aubrey Streit Krug, takes us through a two-part practice of following the roots around us belowground to learn about the soils we stand on today and to retrace our memories and rediscover the soils of our past. Let us know where this took you and what you find there in the comments.
