Brandon Francis is a plant researcher, but his first 'classroom lessons' were held in the corn fields of his family when he was a youth. We casually conversate about food sovereignty, grains, and the importance of intersecting food growing with childhood.
Brandon Francis connects us to corn and his cosmology through stories and traditions practiced by his ancestors for thousands of years, offering a researcher's perspective of why these practices have continued into modern times.
