Flora: the keeper of the memory of forests


Flora is the keeper of the memory of forests.

Flora is the keeper of the memory of forests.


Before memory existed, before stories were born, before fire, before days and nights, before light and darkness, there was Flora.

When all of nature was one being, there was Flora.
Before each species had a name and each name had a meaning, there was Flora. Flora is one, Flora is all. Flora was the first name of the thousands of names that nature has received. Flora is born in each seed and is reborn in each fruit.

When Flora breathes, she breathes the world.
She surrounds us but she is invisible.
She feeds us without expecting anything in return.
She is reborn, regenerates, resurfaces.
She feeds us again.

Flora is each species of the plant kingdom. It’s not one, it’s all.

Flora is a being that inhabits every space in this world, the third world, and has taken root in our infinite culture.

And even though Flora doesn’t need us, we need her. Our fight today is to protect it. Our battle is against her extermination. Our war is against its extinction. We will never lack Flora, but we have forgotten, exploited, and corrupted her.

Flora is food, it is shelter, it is refuge, it is the cradle of Fauna, but that is another story.

Our commitment is to protect Flora, that flora that covers the entire territory of Ecuador like a multicolored cloak.

Flora is the keeper of the memory of forests.
