Mother Earth, Sister Seed: Travels Through India's Farmlands

Tax included.
In Mother Earth, Sister Seed, landscape designer Lathika George looks at India's traditional agricultural communities and the changes-some good, some not-that modernization and urbanization have wrought. Paying tribute to the ancient ways of farming life, George talks about the men and women whose livelihoods are derived from the earth and the sea; from rivers and forests and farms. An organic gardener, she takes you through the changing seasons of agriculture and travels around the country, from Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu and Coorg in Karnataka, to the East Khasi Hills in Meghalaya and Chamba in Himachal Pradesh, documenting the celebrations, rituals, folklore and recipes associated with each.

Mother Earth, Sister Seed is a lyrical journey dedicated to ways of life that are vanishing. It evokes the myriad ways the food we eat is produced in India and brings to life the diligent, industrious farmers, fishermen and forest folk who produce it.
