“I studied at the College of Electronics at university. I’ve never worked in this field, even after graduation. Instead, we bought land in our area and created a self-sustaining environment. I spend most of my days here with the land, with trees and crops. I know that nature is the cure for all ailments. It makes me very comfortable and happy, and I also take pictures. When taking pictures in my village and talking to the villagers, I learned that local seeds are now very scarce. This issue hurt my heart. I decided that when I go to the village, I will collect local seeds and bring them to plant in my garden. I collected dozens of local seeds and will plant them in the spring. I’m still collecting. And later, I will distribute them to the villagers and farmers. I want everything to be natural as before.”
