Robin Nagle on Loving Fresh Kills
Last Saturday’s downpour didn’t faze the hardy group of about 30 that came out to hear Robin Nagle’s talk on top of North Mound at the Freshkills Park site. Our coming together “not in protest but in appreciation” for what was buried beneath our feet, in spite of the rain, was strong foundation for Robin’s claim that we can love a landfill. Thanks to all who came out, and, of course, to Robin.
If you weren’t able to make it, or if you were and are hungry for more of Robin’s insights into the world of sanitation work, Slate published this week of her journal entries in 2004, which is a great read.
