Last year’s winner, Gabriella Crimi ‘15, submitted a photo taken in Gujarat, India.
“We too often forget that the bottle of honey we grab from a store’s shelf can be traced back to one farm, one family and one story. Five-year-old Satvakal and her father taught me the important lesson that food is much more significant than mere substance when I visited their rural village in Gujarat while interning at Under The Mango Tree. Beekeeper Bansubhai’s mango orchard has flourished with the help of his three bee boxes. This increase in agricultural productivity not only has affected his farm, but his family has prospered as well because the additional income allows him to invest in the wellness and education of his children.”
