Sanitha Alam – Founder of Planteka Community
Sanitha founded the Planteka as a community and marketplace for plant lovers, with the mission to bring people together through their connection to plants. Her work is inspired by growing up in the abundant nature of Kerala (India) and by her mother, who is a teacher of botany. Kerala is also where Ayurveda originated, allowing Sanitha to grow up learning about medicinal plants, and understanding the therapeutic benefits that plants have on us.
