Jaime Otero, an instructor and expert Galician farmer, embarks on a journey across the Iberian Peninsula where he establishes deep connections by conducting workshops on syntropic farming. This narrative follows reflections on current agriculture, challenging harmful practices and cultivating sustainable solutions that have already begun to sprout in successful projects. This journey is a living metaphor for the dissemination of a new agricultural vision, a testament to how small seeds of change can grow and flourish in a system where cooperation between species and respect for the natural rhythms of the forest are fundamental.
