Reuben Jentink is a graduate student at Simon Fraser University. For nearly a decade, he worked with Hum: a free university-level educational program with residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (the epicentre of Canada’s opioid and housing crises). His work examines gardens, both public and private at a variety of scales, as educational sites that configure plant life, allow for fraught encounters with nonhuman worlds, and embed cultural desires, civic sensibilities, and notions of sustainability, resiliance, and climate change. His work is informed by critical Indigenous studies and English studies. He has been published in Capacious: Journal for Emerging Affect Studies.
