The spiritual component of water is hard to ignore. That's part of why Venice Williams refers to Alice's Garden as her parish. Standing among the shared plots of the urban farm in Milwaukee, Williams sees the water flowing from a central cistern as a font baptizing new life into the world. Speaking to Anne on stage, she explains how the garden fits into her community and how she's working to help them reclaim and celebrate the cultural art of cultivating, preparing, and preserving food.
