HAS THIS EXPERIENCE ALTERED OR SHIFTED YOUR VALUE OR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PERSONAL LANDSCAPE? IF YES, HOW? IF NO, WHAT DID THIS EXPERIENCE BRING UP I grew up in the neighborhood that I foraged in, so it was interesting to notice things differently and note the ways my adult eyes view this environment differently.
