Nakisa shared about the intersection of nature and its disappearance growing up, as well as her growing awareness of it, family, community, and a polluting cement factory appearing in her neighborhood. We recorded shortly after the Buffalo shooting of May 2022, and talking about access to fresh produce disappearing from her neighborhood touched on it.
Everything led to her sharing about her plans to garden and the role of gardening in her life growing up. She hasn’t made the headway she wanted to, but isn’t letting up. We’ll have to wait for another episode to hear about more visible results, but she shares plenty about gardening and how we could use more in all neighborhoods.
I think you’ll hear her talking about nature, through gardening, bringing inspiration and freedom.
