Landscape of Layers

The photo describes an everyday agriculture practice near a unique site of a quarry. It emphasizes how different practices work in harmony within each other. The culture landscape integrates the resources of crops and local stone to promote equity in the use and access of natural resources. We can see the interaction between humans and the environment by only looking at the landscape of layers. The tradition of both practices adapted to each other and managing systems of natural resources.
