La herencia del viento

Wind Heritage

## ## ## ## ##

Juan has worked out in the field for as long as he can remember. In the past 40 years of his life, he has developed a strong connection to the land and is grateful for what this has taught him; his experience encapsulates what agriculture has meant to Mexico over the years. Every day he looks for a way to care for his plants that will reflect his values when caring for his family and promoting his children’s growth. He manages to share these intentions with his workers, his town and somehow even with the people that receive his crop.
