Ejido Verde x Pcr
Ejido Verde is a social enterprise based in Morelía, the capital city of the Michoacán state of Mexico. The company works with the region’s struggling rural and indigenous communities to combat deforestation and foster economic growth through pine resin production.
Poco a Poco spent nearly a month working with the Ejido Verde staff and living with indigenous communities to understand the relationship between pine resin and the survival of an ecosystem and entire culture. Poco a Poco produced original photo and video content to share the stories of Michoacán’s communities, forests, and resin refineries on behalf of Ejido Verde.
The team continues to profile rural resineros across Central and South America as part of an ongoing written and photo documentary series with the Pine Chemicals Review.
