BOOK: THE WORLD WE NEED BY THE NEW PRESS
Chapter: Food, Farming and Healing After the U.S. Navy Bombings.
“Ana Elisa Pérez Quintero and Jorge Cora know the sound of a bomb. They were washing vegetables on their nine-acre farm, Finca Conciencia, in 2019, when the earth released a deep scream from its bowels. The ground shook. "La tierra screams and trembles, she suffers," says Cora. With their work on the farm, these veteran farmers not only bet that Vieques can have food safety, but they also believe that cultivating can heal the affected soil and chronic diseases of their residents.”
