Shruti Tharayil

Forgotten Greens

Shruti has a penchant for weaving stories at the intersection of biodiversity, caste and food systems. Her world-view is shaped most significantly by her experiences of her journey with a multitude of communities – Indigenous, Dalit, and pastoral communities across Southern India, which has strengthened her narratives and collaborative work.

She founded Forgotten Greens, an initiative that works on reviving the fast disappearing traditions of consuming uncultivated greens. In the beginning of 2024, she did a solo cycle yatra across South India, cycling 700 kms across 3 states, documenting uncultivated greens from different communities and lesser-known food stories.
