Event description

Description

Join GRLSQUASH in celebrating the launch of our third issue, TAKING ROOT, at niche Cambridge and Lamplighter Brewing Co. We’ve partnered with niche and Lamplighter to take root more deeply in the womxn-led businesses in our community. The first portion of the evening at niche will feature a mini speaker series, discounted plants n’ niche goodies, and snacks, naturally. Once plant time is over, we’ll make our way to Lamplighter for part two where they’ll be pouring a ~very special~ new beer release (follow along on social for more on this), we’ll be slinging GRLSQUASH merch + issues, and you’ll be able to gaze upon a lovely plant installation curated by niche.

This issue is about taking root, by force, because it isn’t always given to us by someone else. It’s about the colonizer and the colonized, as well as the decolonization of certain foods + practices. TAKING ROOT could be a collection of poems you wrote when you were living in rural Tuscany and missing home (and companionship) something fierce, or a recipe you turn to when you’re sick and in need of something that soothes + grounds you. Maybe TAKING ROOT is a photo essay of monochromatic meals you style with your sister because they remind y’all of the same kitsch your grandmother’s house was filled with. Maybe your roots are more literal because your connection to the earth grows deep into dirt along with the foods you grow and harvest. Maybe TAKING ROOT is your ode to tubers whose starchy flesh thrives beneath the soil.

GRLSQUASH is a biannual journal about the intersections among food, art, and culture. Our mission is to highlight the overlaps of these worlds with words, images, and recipes from our contributors. We promise to always empower, support, and amplify members of the GRLSQUASH community. We believe in nourishing the mind, belly, and soul for all, but especially the underrepresented: womxn, femmes, gender non-conforming, agender, and trans folks, especially POC, under the GRL umbrella.

Niche is a place for people to explore, learn and become inspired by tropical plants. Niche is womxn-owned and has two locations, one in Cambridge and another in South Boston. Niche focuses on fostering a welcoming community for all plant people to come gather for plant chats, events, and local business collabs.

Lamplighter is a womxn co-owned brewery and taproom located in downtown Cambridge. Their focus is on aroma-packed and flavor-driven beers, with an emphasis on New England IPAs, barrel-aged sours, and special seasonals. They brew a variety of one-off batches that allow them to pursue their various whims, and they don’t shy away from funk, twists on tradition, and unique ingredients.
