Raft of the Medusa

The farm team re-enacts the Raft of the Medusa by Gericault, on the platform /Multi-use room made possible by an anonymous donor.

The Raft of the Medusa, a major work in French 19th-century painting—is generally regarded as an icon of Romanticism. It depicts an event whose human and political aspects greatly interested Géricault: the wreck of a French frigate off the coast of Senegal in 1816, with over 150 soldiers on board.

Recipe for Gleaner’s Salsa

  1. glean. gather the leftover tomatoes that were missed during the harvest. the ones on the ground are the dirtiest and the sweetest.
  2. wash. especially if sharing with others. many people despise dirt on their food. though it really causes no harm, so no need to be diligent.
  3. chop and mush ’em. cut the tomatoes, if desired. put them in a bowl and mush with a fork. or don’t. whichever you prefer.
  4. add in chopped onion and garlic, salt, lime juice, and honey. and maybe black pepper and cilantro, if you like that sort of thing. i don’t.
  5. mix. you can do this by hand, or if you like a less-chunkier salsa, pulse in a blender.
  6. more salt.
  7. share.
