Michelle López Lorenzo currently centers life around one of her favorite places, El Yunque National Forest. She works as a field technician, mainly on tree-related studies, and seeks to promote knowledge of native and naturalized edible plants. As a certified Forest Therapy Guide, she facilitates opportunities for people to connect with the abundant Nature around us and within. Outside of the rainforest, she works little by little toward her dream of food sovereignty in Borikén (Puerto Rico) through small-scale agroecology practices and sustainable foraging. Ancestral plant knowledge, practices and connections are of her greatest hopes for the future.
