During the past 25 years, we have acquired an enormous amount of useful knowledge about using agave in many different ways; we find it worth sharing this with you in a number of workshop concepts that we offer. Our workshops include different themes ranging from environmental and cultural aspects and we are always open for local and international Colaborations. We offer personalized workshops for groups of at least 4 people throughout the year. If you are interested, get in touch to recieve more information and specify your project!
