Prasanna Hettiarachchi is the founder/Chairman of Saaraketha, an agricultural enterprise that empowers rural small holder farmers to embrace sustainable methods of production. Saaraketha is one of the key vendors at The Good Market. Here’s what he had to say about the initiative…

“An inspiring initiative; a hopeful sign of the maturity of the society and the times we live in. It is most certainly an indication that we are on the right track.. Amidst all the unsustainable happenings and negativity around us globally, there are yet little micro cosms of goodness and positivity that contribute to the ripples in the pool of humanity to ever widen; touching more lives… The Good Market bears testimony to a society that is evolving to embrace a greater awareness of the ” circle of life”, a greater sense of inclusivity and understanding, on the choices we make and the impacts they have…. May this seed of Goodness blossom into a myriad more”.
