VIVERO AMIGOS DEL MAGUEY Y LA BIODIVERSIDAD
Our vivero is a neutral, convivial space for consumers, researchers, artisans, & campesino mezcaleros to learn, exchange and interchange knowledge. Its a space that works to conserve landscapes, crafts, natural resources as well as support sovereignty.

Foundation of the vivero’s efforts to conserve and reforest natural resources in the pueblos and families with whom we work are:
- To support independent, small-scale mezcaleros in planting and sustaining their own sources of agave. Even the most well-planning mezcalero families are typically forced to buy agave from sources, and this puts small scale producers at risk and vulnerable to monopolistic behaviors of others.
- To share the responsibility of sustaining populations of endemic agave and the production of agave, which our products take from.
