Family tree quest

via PlumpiƱon, I have met some of my extended family! I'm thrilled by this--I couldn't think of a better way for the work to have traveled and returned. I'm writing this from London, where I am organizing a symposium for PLOS next week. Tomorrow: Kew Gardens, most fecund & rich edible & postcolonial territory.

Rural Alchemy Workshop covers the Multispecies Meal at Goddard College

R.A.W. wrote up the Multispecies Meal!

Multispecies Picnic-goers also had the opportunity to sample Lindsay Kelley’s Plumpinon, tearing with teeth into one of the bright-colored, recycled plastic bags that contain Kelley’s latest Starvation Seeds recipe. Plumpinon is a nut paste in which the artist employs the traditional “starvation nut” of her native New Mexico as a means to interrogate Nutriset’s patented humanitarian aid food, Plumpy’nut. Many who tasted the Plumpinon were pleasantly surprised to discover that an erudite and thought-provoking microbiopolitical intervention could taste so damn good.

Thanks for being there, eating, and writing, R.A.W.!
