Dirt / Issue #1
~ a free digital prototype
Dirt exemplifies the complexity of food. Dirt can mean obscene and immoral, gossip. Dirt is life giving, earthy, nutritious. Dirt is an affront to our self or culture. Dirt grows food. As Andrew Geeves’s says in his framing article “Dirt spans a formidable scope”.
In this issue you will find an unlikely but fabulous mix of contributors - microbiologists, psychologists, chefs, food writers, journalists, gardeners, social scientists, as well as those who cross fields, such as Yuin, Bunurong and Tasmanian man Bruce Pascoe, who is an award winning author and also a farmer, teacher and fisherman. Together they open up conversations about dirt and its relationship to food culture, production and consumption.
