Join us today, Wednesday, January 13th for a book talk with Bonnie Clark, professor and curator for archaeology in the University of Denver’s Anthropology Department and NAJGA Board Member. Come and hear about her new book, Finding Solace in the Soil: An Archaeology of Gardens and Gardeners at Amache!
Finding Solace in the Soil tells the largely unknown story of the gardens of Amache, the War Relocation Authority incarceration camp in Colorado. Combining physical evidence with oral histories and archival data and enriched by the personal photographs and memories of former Amache incarcerees, the book describes how gardeners cultivated community in confinement.
