Ejido Verde

Michoacán, Mexico

Ejido Verde is a social enterprise based in Michoacán that works with rural and indigenous communities to combat deforestation and foster economic growth through pine resin production.

Poco a Poco spent a month working with the Ejido Verde staff and living with indigenous communities to understand the region’s changing environmental and cultural landscapes. Poco a Poco produced original photo and video content to share the stories of Michoacán’s communities, forests, and resin refiners on behalf of Ejido Verde.

“We don’t need any more - we just need enough to eat and dress ourselves. That’s it. Our riches, they’re in the forest, here, in the mountains, in the lakes.”

- Rafael Díaz, Former Mayor and Resinero, Patamban
