Join us for an enlightening session with Devi Lakshmikutty, the co-founder of Bio Basics, at The Nilgiris Earth Festival. With a profound dedication to sustainable food solutions and a journey spanning over a decade in organic farming, Devi has been an integral part of movements like the Save Our Rice Campaign and is a champion for agro-biodiversity conservation.

In this special talk and demonstration, Devi will delve into the world of heritage rices and local millets of India. She will share insights on the multifaceted processes of farming, harvesting, and the unique geographies that shape these grains. This session is not just about learning; it's an experience that bridges the gap between knowledge and practice. Devi will demonstrate how these locally available, nutritious grains can be integrated into our everyday cooking, highlighting why they are superior choices for health and the environment.

This event is a must-attend for anyone passionate about sustainable living, culinary arts, and embracing local food cultures.

A nicely designed PDF with educational literature about heritage grains and easy to follow recipes will be given as compliments to all those who attend the event.
