A box of locally-grown crops sent directly from women farmers to consumers, kkureomi materializes overlooked forms of labor and brings economic independence to women. Three sister communities from South Korea—artist collective Rice Brewing Sisters Club, independent cooperative of women farmers Sister’s Garden, and urban farmer and freelance journalist organicpunk—come together for a special session, in which they unbox a kkureomi package together with ten guests including artists, writers, farmers, chef, community organizers, and activists, joining from home and abroad. Join our conversation as we unwrap the kkureomi, in Rice Brewing Sisters Club’s words, “a box of goods and goodies made from the sisters’ joint harvest and research this year,” and make our way through indigeneity, soil and land, community farming, ecological thinking, and micro/macro forms of solidarity.
