Take a look at the Wulf, A. (2011) Gardening as politics: Digging the founding gardeners. Preview the document article, which suggests gardening as a tool for addressing sustainability challenges grounded in the vision of early American leaders. For context, this article is the first excerpt from a compilation by EcoChallenge.org (formerly the Northwest Earth Institute), a nonprofit organization based in Portland, Oregon dedicated to sustainability education. The course book is called Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics, and Sustainability.
Examine this article from a social sustainability lens, considering this recommendation from Taylor & Klingle (2006):
“We…need to expand our notion of what constitutes nature and who speaks on its behalf. Unless environmentalists take a full reckoning of their past to find other voices to remember and celebrate, the movement may grow ever more narrow and irrelevant.”
Write a post addressing the following questions:
Critique this article. What aspects of U.S. history does the article ignore?
How do these omissions reflect a culture of white immunity or privilege, reflective of the environmental movement’s elitist past?
When a sustainability coursebook begins with an article like this, what might the impact be on environmentalists (or people just beginning to learn about sustainability) who are members of minoritized groups?
