What we do

We are a collective of ten people from different disciplines and with the principles of permaculture we‘re running urban agriculture on the rooftops of the inner city.
We finance ourselfes through workshops that we give, plants, seedlings and selfmade
products, that we sell.
By practising Teqio (a traditional way of collective labour) and Treque (a traditional way of bartering) we get in contact with many people in and around the city and are able to gather new experiences and spread our knowlege.
Furthermore we preserve the wetlands of Xochimilco, Mexico City‘s largest nature sanctuary wich is listed by the UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage. Xochimilco is worldwide known for it‘s „swimming gardens“, mud covered and planted rafts – the chinampas.
