Says curator of Maine Farmland Trust Gallery, Anna Abaldo: “Our language is rich with idioms that refer to our agricultural heritage. Of old, we have used the imagery of seasons and growing cycles to describe the human condition. We say a young girl is ‘blossoming into a woman,’ we speak of ‘planting the seed’ for an idea, or that through our struggles, ‘ripening.’”

“It’s not long ago that humans were inextricably linked to the seasons and cycles of nature,” Abaldo continues. “In fact, I postulate that we still are, yet much of our culture is still not fully aware of that fact, or is even in denial.”
