Leah Penniman's discusses "spiritual activism" in her book and highlights the ecology of African diaspora through growing food and farm education. Caméléon Studio is cultivating spiritual creativity through collective action.
The themes that kept coming up during gardening, are the important of care and preservation, as well as the important of archiving. Archiving as a form of education and the embodiment of passing down wisdom; which is to say that education comes in multiple forms. And care and preservation as a collective action!
