What you'll do

South of the Mexico city we find Xochimilco, Prehispanic natives built on the lake the chinampas small islands used for agriculture forming a network of channels, in which we will sail through time enjoying the nature and the gazing of its birds. We will embark on a cayuco(small vessel) , a little bit before sunrise we´ll silently do the bird gazing in the channels, realizing that this is a living ecosystem which is home for several native birds and migrating ones, going through the channels the same way the natives did it. We´ll arrive to the chinampa in time for breakfast. We will learn from the ancient and new techniques used on the chinampa to promote a sustainable an organic agriculture.

Rodrigo, Itzel And Mariana

Rodrigo: Engineer, student and master of NOW, I saw that most of the time the camping experience was uncomfortable and complex ; we want to change that for a real enjoyment of nature and yourself. Mariana: Architect, passion and knowledge used to give a perspective that takes in mind the utility of the space and the natural beauty of it. Itzel: Environmentalist and passionate about discovering the ways in which we communicate with nature and the other living beings. My interested is finding ways of communucation that are based on loved and tolerance, always with a good sense of humor. I consider every bond with nature as an opportunity to relearn something about oneself, and the best way to learn something is through practice. Mexico has many opportunities to become more sensitive and connect with the land.
