We all may need a doctor or a lawyer once in a while. But we need a farmer every day, in fact we need his services three times a day. Agriculture and Farming are one of the oldest trades that mankind perfected. With a burgeoning global population, agriculture and farming have become sensitive political issues across every nation in the world today. Agriculture is not just a job but a way of life for farmers. They are emotionally connected to their lands and look after them like their own children. This care and emotion ensures that people around the world are fed properly. Visvamitra salutes these heroes who keep themselves motivated despite many odds and feed the world by continuing their agriculture profession.
AWARDED TO Ms. Alessia Montani
Ms.Alessia Montani is the founder of the M’AMA SEEDS startup project derived from the experience of M’AMA ART. The concept behind the project is the idea of returning to a sustainable diet. To do this, it is imperative to recover the heritage of ancient grains. The course has involved an intense activity of study and research, commissioned to universities and medical facilities that aim to deepen the links between the reuse of ancient grains, even more than 3,000 years old, and the prevention / treatment of many modern diseases, such as celiac disease, psoriasis and other forms of gluten intolerances.
