This photo was taken at Navdanya Farm, a seed farm owned by Vandana Shiva. Here, a woman is working in a ginger root field that is also home to other crops. Biodiversity is one of the ways that Navdanya ensures that disease and pests don't damage the crops. Behind the farm is a forest full of leaves that can be used for feeding cows. While it is illegal to take the leaves from these odd looking trees a few days before this photo was taken men were spotted gathering them.
