Urban Harvest 2019: Organic, exotic food on a platter

With Earth Day marked on April 22, and the Ao tribe in Nagaland observing Moatsü — a festival that marks the end of the sowing period — on May 1, Weekend turns the spotlight on the people and organisations who are cultivating both exotic and indigenous crops. Here is a guide on how to eat global while supporting your local farmers.

Read about the seed savers who are preserving our heirloom vegetables; how to get fresh produce delivered to your doorstep; people who help start your own urban farm, and why having a family farmer, like a family doctor, is not such a far-fetched idea.
