The Seasonal Body is an anti-oppressive space focused on the intersection of food justice, body positivity, and disability, with content drawing on feminist food studies, ecopsychology, disability studies, ‘Health at Every Size’®, fat acceptance, and more.

This project was founded by Julie Nowak (M.Ed.), an activist, educator and writer who is dedicated to shifting our broken food system and promoting body positivity within an intersectional and anti-oppressive framework. The Seasonal Body stems from Julie’s personal experience of finding healing from struggles with food and body image through therapeutic farming, as well as living as a disabled person with multiple chronic illnesses after traumatic brain injury.
