As he stared at his blackened hands and smelt the earth on them, he flashed back to the past.


A Finance Professional, he had lived life in the fast lane. Eat, Drink, Party, Repeat was his mantra. Until the day it all changed. As he was busy addressing a packed boardroom, he suddenly felt sick. Nausea, dizziness, anxiety all got him at the same time. Doctors said it was stress, but even after reducing his workload, nothing changed. He visited a small town on the outskirts with the intention of a getaway. That visit turned his life around. He realized the harm that pesticides and chemicals were causing in our daily foods at this organic farming retreat.
