WHITE QUINOA

WHITE QUINOA

Under the watchful eye of the god Wiracocha, Young horticulturists make their way to the Titicaca Lake’s shore where panicles of quinoa grow. The men and women of the mountains will continue to perform this harvest ritual, which goes back 3.000 years ago since man domesticated the grain, which centuries later would become the key of food safety for the human race, this according to the UN.
