Will tours a garden where placentas have been buried beneath trees.
The placenta (for those of you who’ve forgotten 8th grade biology) is involved in fetal development.
It’s where a mother’s blood passes nutrients and oxygen to the blood of a fetus inside her.
With the help of the umbilical cord, it’s how a mother nourishes a developing baby.
For these, it’s how a baby can nourish a young tree.
Press play to listen
Thanks to Molly Graves & Chris Hamilton for letting Will explore the sounds, tastes, and implications of their garden; thanks to Charlie Mintz for editorial advice.
