Mother Earth, Sister Seed

An ode to the enduring spirit and wisdom of India’s farmers and food producers!

Mother Earth, Sister Seed is a lyrical journey in the shoes of landscape designer, Lathika George. Released in January, 2018, the book is a treat for bibliophiles who intend to look closely at India’s traditional agricultural communities and the changes-some good, some not-that modernization and urbanization have wrought.

Paying tribute to the ancient systems of farming, George talks about the men and women whose livelihoods are derived from the land and the sea. An organic gardener herself, she takes you through the changing seasons of agriculture as she travels around the country, from Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu and Coorg in Karnataka to the Khasi Hills in Meghalaya and Chamba in Himachal Pradesh, documenting the celebrations, rituals, folklore and recipes associated with each.
