In the Peruvian Andes, 140 kilometres from Lima, the river Cañete gushes forth in the middle of the valley. Close to the river’s source, terraced crops stretch as far as the eye can see. Plants and ancient varieties of vegetable are sown there, according to the cycles of the sun and moon.

An extensive irrigation system supplies water to these plants. Located at an altitude of several hundred metres, the region, which is virtually unknown and has remained unchanged for thousands of years, was already used as a granary before the Incas.
