Domestic Worldmaking by the Enslaved

Green Architectures: Gardens and Provision Grounds

Told by Geri Augusto, this story explores how the enslaved produced their own food, creating provision grounds outside their domestic dwellings or on marginal lands as a form of resistance. Plants nurtured by the enslaved in bondage, limbo and freedom are explored as epistemic objects and offer a window into their integrated knowledge of botanical, culinary, medicinal, agricultural, spiritual worlds and green landscapes of their own making.
