Through growing and sharing varieties of fruits, vegetables, and grains, the Living Memory Lab investigates how the plants which provide our food simultaneously influence our understanding of history. Any questions, concerns, or ideas can be sent to Dr. Mark Rhodes who brings his expertise as a geographer focused on memory to the study of these unique human-environment interactions. Summer 2021 will focus primarily on the Paul Robeson tomato but also the Stephen Biko bean and the Red Cloud potato. As we learn more, we will expand our greenhouse, garden, collection, and research. Find us at the Hancock Tori on the Quincy Green, Thursdays from 3:00-6:00pm this summer!
