Food traditions are an important way of maintaining traditional ecological knowledge and heirloom resources. Cooking and gardening are means to keep both social relationships and environmental relationships strong because they require frequent practice and adaptation. Global environmental change will have consequences for land and biodiversity, but in rural Bosnia and elsewhere, these changes ripple through our cuisines, gardens, and communities. The solutions to climate change will have to include multinational policy initiatives and innovative technology. But while these grand solutions are important, empowering and celebrating the communities sustaining biodiverse traditions around the world can be even more valuable. The front lines of climate change are our world’s farms, gardens, seed stores, and kitchens. These families, and especially these women, work every day to sustain biological and cultural diversity for the rest of us. This project is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.
