I have used a qualitative interview method and analyzed the informant’s experiences through Pierre Bourdieu theory of capital, habitus and field and Estelle Freedman’s thoughts of separatism as a strategy. All the informants in this study were convinced that the community within the group would have looked different if men were involved. Without men they have a safe place where they can exchange experiences and give each other advice for how to take care of their plants. (Less)
