Food sustains us, quite literally. We have to feed our physical bodies, of course. But real food is so much more than that—we also want to nourish our family bonds by eating meals together. We want to tend to our land, caring for it to reap the bounty of produce in return. And we want to provide sustenance to our souls, by observing—and participating in—the cycle of life right in front of us as we move through the seasons.
