Rural Mexican communities provide the essentials for agave culture. At The Siembra Suro Foundation, we provide these communities with the essentials for healthy economic development.
They rise before the sun and harvest thousands of pounds of agave every day, by hand. Entire industries, and an entire culture, rest on their shoulders and expertise. They are struggling mightily to survive.
At The Siembra Suro Foundation, our philosophy is as old as time: water and sun equals prosperity. Our clean water and solar power initiatives protect the vivaciousness of one of Mexico’s most precious resources: jimadores.
Agave culture relies on agave farmers. Agave farmers need clean drinking water. Our goal: bridge the gap, sustainably.
Electricity is essential to economic development. A few solar panels makes a world of difference in jumpstarting local economies and helping to bring education up to speed.
