Abrazar la Tierra


This book has been created in a participatory manner with various members of the Coquí community.

Throughout its production process, various spaces have been generated for reflecting on the importance of food, not only for generating self-sustaining economies but also for strengthening territorial autonomy, cultural practices, and environmental regeneration.

Within its kitchens, spaces of alchemy are where other possible futures are contemplated, and a connection is made with the legacy of ancestral spirituality and wisdom.
