Harold Rhenisch writes about what a lifelong experience in orchards has taught him about being human in a postcolonial society–both the literal fruit tree orchards of the Okanagan Valley and the figurative orchards of literary culture and education. Whether he’s comparing industrialized fruit-growing practices like ‘Mold and Hold’ to the educational complex, or considering how decolonization might meaningfully progress in Syilx Territory, Rhenisch is always cultivating our sense of our presence in a real world. “I used to prune trees,” writes Harold Rhenisch. “Now I prune shadows out of light.”
