Host Teju Adisa-Farrar was asked to write about her personal relationship to knitting and crafting. “I instantly thought of my grandmother, who did everything from crochet and knitting to needlepoint. As I explored these Caribbean crafts further, I discovered a tree that she had never heard about but seemed important in them all: the Lacebark.” This two-part episode looks at the Lacebark's origin and impact, as well as Cockpit Country in Trelawny in Northwestern Jamaica and the Accompong Maroons, the stewards of the biodiversity there and keepers of West African traditions.
