Indian Landrace Exchange is a collective of Indigenous frontline farmers, seed collectors, and preservationists from Central and south east Asia Who collect, document, preserve, select and strive to improve these landrace and heirloom Genetics for the present and future, yet constantly strive to empower the Indigenous Communities through a holistic Landrace exchange programme, which connects The East to The west, on a “Silk route to salvation” of Cannabis Genes.
