We tasted tomatoes, so many different, delicious varieties. Mithra showed us one of the first sunflowers blooming, most of its petals still folded in on itself, creating what looked like a hand making a peace sign. And his greatest pride, a purple stingbean, that a 7 year old girl said tasted better than cotton candy.
Mithra is a beautiful soul who wants to change the way people farm, starting with healthy soil. He told us he want’s to go back to Sri Lanka, where he’s from, and start a Soil Revolution. Witnessing his passion and hearing his very practical plans, I don’t doubt that he can do it.
