About the event

Vives Verde Botanical Garden in Xoxocotlan, which features hundreds of plants laid out in a spectacular garden. A labor of love created over eight years by Francisco Martinez Carasco, Vives Verde transformed a neighborhood dump into an amazing place. Francisco will be on hand to explain his vision of uniting architecture with nature. Be sure to bring your camera. Explore the garden slowly to see and appreciate all the wood and metal sculptures scattered everywwhere. Next we will move on to Antiguas Maravillas - home and workshop of generations of the Salgado family - who are famous for creating intricate silver jewelry. Finally, the group will visit the home, studio and museum of Angelico and Isaias Jimenez, who proudly carry on the family tradition of carving and painting wooden figures. They will show off the many artifacts of their trade displayed in the family museum to preserve the history of this art form. 

Additional Fees: There will be an entrance fee of 100 pesos at the Vives Verde garden. 

The other expense of the day will be lunch at the Sabor de Antquera restaurant, which offers a staggering number of delicious dishes on the buffet. Expect to pay about 250 pesos for the lunch experience.
