    Tixchel is founded to improve our quality of life with the belief that we can design and build a better world through our innovative and natural lifestyle choices. We are looking for individuals who are interested in all aspects of agriculture, organic gardening, solar energy and hydropower.

    Our mission is to teach individuals how to meet their social, physical and emotional challenges in a positive and sensitive manner through new career choices that prepare them for self-sufficiency and an independent lifestyle.
