Hello wood- & music-friends,
my name is Tim Bernhardt, I'm a german artist, musician and a musical instruments maker. Since the making of my very first drum in 1993, today my work reflects 25 years of a life passionately dedicated to the elaboration of musical instruments and all kinds of innovative products made from the unique 'Wood of the Desert'.

Obtained from the Agave plant, which is well integrated in Mexican culture since over 10.000 years (Tequila, Sisal, & much more!!), this incomparable material is a true 100% sostainable resource from the only desert in Europe. This wood is very light, fast growing, beautiful, durable, easy to process, it has great educational value and endless possibilities…

In 2008, together with a small colective, I founded the Agave-School (Pita-Escuela), a school and association for Music, Nature & Life. We are located in a little eco-village, a green oasis in the most arid area in Europe, where the Agave plant has become a symbol for our region and where we live off-grid with self-sustainable water and power supply.

As we have a great stock of selected raw material, we are currently looking for motivated people who can give us a hand in the creation of our products and its marketing. One of our aims is to include others into the project, to open a wider market and to create awareness for sostainable and handcrafted products from the desert.

Especially WE ARE LOOKING FOR SKILLED WOOD-WORKERS (or people who want to become that) with self-initiative and an advanced desire to grow, learn, share and to explore a new and sostainable material. As well we welcome anybody who is good in online-sales and social media.

The conditions for the PARTICIPATION AS A VOLUNTEER are to be agreed individually. If you are interested, please contact us to start a conversation, we'd be happy to recieve your message.

All the best, peace & love,
