Worker Teresa de Jesus Cén Requena, 44, (R) portrayed with her mother-in-law (L), after returning from work at Mestiza de Indias, at her home in Kunché, Yucatán, Mexico on March 15, 2023. Mestizas de Indias is a 544-acre regenerative farm located in the middle of the Yucatán jungle and founded by Spaniard Gonzalo Samaranch Granados in 2015. This agriculture project preserves Indigenous farming traditions and heirloom crops that are native to the region, while aiming to combat the harmful effects of Mexico’s agrochemical industry. It also offers the local Mayan community access to healthy food and much-needed jobs. Photograph by Bénédicte Desrus
