This micro-documentary speaks to the members of the Zenú women’s collective, who work together on the land to grow crops for their community.

Instead of using any pesticides or chemicals, they rely on their indigenous knowledge, applying traditional growing practices that prevent their crops getting damaged by pests or diseases.
