“I was a lecturer for 23 years, but I was expelled because of a political decision. I used to work on animals and the nature, so when I was expelled, I went back to that. Five years ago, a woman brought me wheat seeds, I have been planting wheat for four years and I have five different variations now. My aim is to increase variation from natural seeds. Many farmers use artificial seeds now, even though you can harvest a lot more from it, but it can damage the land, it could even be bad for our health, and it doesn’t taste very good. This is why we try to increase production and use of locally produced goods, and later to distribute them among local farmers. We want every farmer to use local products so the land is not damaged.”
