Agave Power

OCA’s Mexico affiliate, Via Organica, in a project sponsored by OCA and our sister project Regeneration International, operates a research farm and teaching center outside San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, in the semi-arid drylands of North Central Mexico.

Over the past several years we have been working with a group of innovative small farmers and agronomists to develop a new system of organic and regenerative desert agriculture and holistic livestock management, utilizing native plants and trees (agave and mesquite). 

We believe that Agave Power has the potential to revolutionize farming and ranching in the arid and semi-arid farmlands and rangelands that constitute 40% of the world’s lands. We believe that we can green the desert, eliminate rural poverty, and sequester massive amounts of excess atmospheric CO2 both aboveground and below ground with this Agave Power agroforestry system, which builds upon native wisdom and small farmer innovation.
