Las Cañadas, agriculture in the cloud forest

Text by: Frank Steinhofer

Living with Earth, not against it.

For more than 25 years, Las Cañadas has been experimenting with a regenerative way of life in one of Mexico’s most biodiverse regions, a cloud forest in Veracruz. From agriculture to education and social organisation, everything revolves around a holistic way of caring for the land, people, plants and animals and their interconnections. One family became two, became three. A cooperative. And isn’t ecology all about growing kinship with all life around us?
