SATTVIK – the festival to celebrate traditional nutritious food and associated knowledge systems was started fourteen years ago at the IIM-A, to provide market based incentives for conserving agro-biodiversity. Creation of demand for rarely or less cultivated nutritionally rich crops and varieties may stimulate their cultivation. The paradox of development is that the food rich eat, is often poor. While food that poor grow in poorer regions is richer. In less rainfall regions, soil minerals don’t leach much and thus crops grown there like millets, sorghum pulses etc., are richer.
Sattvik – the festival to celebrate traditional food was started thirteen years ago to promote conservation of agro-biodiversity and creation of demand for nutritional crops, which are rarely or less cultivated now. The paradox of development is such that nutritious food is still consumed in the most under-developed areas and by poorer segments of society. This festival aspires to bring the lesser known but nutrient-rich food from these areas to the urban populace, helping them to adopt healthier food habits and lifestyle. The festival also hopes to encourage the farmers to grow such crops and augment their incomes. Thus, we seek your presence and participation in the event. 23rd to 25th December, 2017, Saturday-Sunday-Monday, AES Ground, Behind TV Tower, Bodakdev Rd, Sunrise Park, Bodakdev, AhmedabadRead More...
