Welcome to In Search Of, a podcast where we go in search of voices and perspectives that inform and expand a life of faith. In this episode, Amy speaks with ethnobotanist Gary Nabhan about finding nourishment in the desert. Conversations about food sovereignty, food culture, Jesus’ parables, and the foods eaten by figures like John the Baptist and Mary of Egypt span the Middle East and the US-Mexico border in this episode of In Search Of.
Gary Nabhan—also known as Brother Coyote—is an agrarian, ethnobotanist, and an Ecumenical Franciscan Brother who has written more than 30 books on food, ecology, and botany, including Food from the Radical Center and Coming Home to Eat. His most recent book is Jesus for Farmers and Fishers.
