From It's Going Down

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we speak with two participants in the Lobelia Commons, an autonomous and anti-capitalist project based out of so-called New Orleans. Our guests explain how they are working on several endeavors: from creating a hub for food production, building a de-centralized nursery, and also creating a new print version of the Farmer’s Almanac.

During our discussion, we talk about overcoming the false culture war narrative of ‘rural vs urban,’ what is would mean to network and build up autonomous land and food projects, and how we might link them with existing struggles happening all around us.

With both the pandemic and ensuing economic fallout showing no signs of slowing down, we hope that this interview both raises important questions and inspires people to think about possible projects.
