Another ‘guardian of diversity’ from LEISA’s Farm

LEISA’s Farm is about sustainable family farming, but there’s a short article on the blog about a farmer from India who would qualify as a ‘guardian of diversity’.

According to the blog post, Mrs Mayadevi Adhikari of Chitwan district has over 1000 species of plants and animals on her farm. Impressive. Unfortunately, the rest of the article focuses on Mrs Adhikari’s compositing methods rather than the biodiversity, but it still makes interesting reading.
