Death in The Garden

Death in The Garden

Jake Marquez and Maren Morgan

“Death in The Garden” is a multimedia project that explores the complex intersection of the cycle of life and death, holism, climate change, civilization, ecology, and health from the perspective of two incredibly curious millennials on a journey to make sense of a very nuanced world. In addition to those listed above, our podcast highlights topics like regenerative agriculture, food, psychology, spirituality, politics, society, and our overall relationship with Nature and the ecosystems we are part of.

On this episode of “Death in The Garden”, we interview biophilic author and attorney, Will Falk. Will began his career as a public defender and eventually transitioned to environmental law and activism, participating direct action encampments at the Wet’suwet’en Nation in Canada and Mauna Kea, protecting the sacred lands from pipelines and a telescope respectively. Recently, Will has been working with the People of Red Mountain, the coalition of indigenous peoples from the Duck Valley and Fort McDermitt reservations, to fight against the lithium claims in Thacker Pass, or Peehee Mu’huh, “Rotten Moon”. In this episode, Will explains the details of his case against Lithium Nevada and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the devastation that will occur if this mine is given clearance to be created, the challenges of being attacked by both environmentalists and capitalists, the importance of direct action, the problem of civilization, a phenomenon called “shifting baseline syndrome”, and we end by discussing the true costs of defending the Earth, and the price we may have to be willing to pay.

Find Will on Twitter, Instagram, and at his website. Read his book, How Dams Fall. And please, if you can, support the efforts at Thacker Pass.
