Xochimilco is best known by tourists for its colorful gondola-like boats, micheladas, mariachis and partying, but this UNESCO world heritage site has been witness of the ancestral farming method called: Chinampa
Since 2011 the non-profit Yolcan has been focusing on working with local farming families to recover the land and use for growing seasonal, organic produce. Combining ancient techniques with the newest farming innovations that not only give excelent produce, but it’s also improving the life if the land as well as the families involved in the project.
The ingredients coming from here are such high quality, they’re even used in world class restaurants in Mexico City like Pujol, Quintonil, Maximo Bistrot, Los Danzantes, among others.
This very special outing is offered in conjunction with our partners Yolcan, gives you an deeper look at this exceptional project.
