Reis Magos Fort with Thus. presents to you the screening of a documentary Saxtticho Koddo – The Granary of Salcete on 19th Feb 2020, 7 pm onward. Through the ages, Salcete has had strong agrarian heritage and been synonymous with the vast production of rice, thereby earning it the title of ‘Saxtticho Koddo’ meaning, ‘The Granary of Salcete’.
Today this traditional occupation is affected by shifts in attitude, labour shortages, GMO’s and unpredictable weather, only to name a few. Even though new technology is being introduced to help the farming community some very serious questions remain to be answered.
The choices we make today will define what happens to our culture and community in the future and most importantly to our source of food.
