Abstract

The spirit of pride in community and of cooperation in the work of farming is what made Freetown a very wonderful place to grow up in… . The farm was demanding, but everyone shared in the work – tending the animals, gardening, harvesting, preserving the harvest, and, every day, preparing delicious foods that seemed to celebrate the good things of the season… . Over the years since I left home and lived in different cities, I have kept thinking about the people I grew up with and about our way of life. Whenever I go back … I realize how much the bond that held us had to do with food.
