    Help

    We look for people interested in participating in the project, as it aims to create a craft workshop to produce sufficient quantity and quality of baskets, hats, baskets, bags, etc. for the local market, tourism and export. The extension of the farm is 10 mzns (18 acres) and we need to plant trees or shrubs that produce branches, roots or vines that combined with bamboo and cane Castilla existing guarantee us the material for sustainable production.

    Also help is needed with ideas for organizing the estate regarding the best use of land and water for growing fruit and vegetables

    Volunteers, who are interested in helping to rescue the tradition of basketry in this part of the world, are welcome. Every idea, every contribution however small, is very important and well received.
