The Ethnobotanic Garden of Oaxaca

This is the most extensive and complete collections of Cactaceae and Agaves from the State of Oaxaca. It was begun in 1993 thanks to the efforts of Maestro Francisco Toledo via the ProOax organization that he leads.

This garden exhibits a collection of living plants as an example of Oaxaca's rich biodiversity, identified and documented to create appreciation as well as to learn about the many uses that these plants have and spread that knowledge to all the native communities and schools of Oaxaca. There is also a library where information can be looked for in regard to these plants. You must go in advance first to sign up as tours are led by staff only.
