Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort celebrated its latest farming initiative with a traditional Vap Magula ceremony, signifying the commencement of its inaugural foray into organic rice cultivation.
Following the ancient rituals, the local community, guests and resort employees were invited to collectively participate in the festive occasion by conducting the initial field ploughing and planting of rice seedlings before enjoying a communal vegetarian brunch together.
Sri Lanka is one of the oldest traditional agriculture civilisations in the Asian region with rice cultivation being the primary production activity in the country.
Rice represents more than just a dietary staple; it is a labour of love that also plays an integral role in Sri Lanka’s cultural life for celebrations, rituals and religious practices
