Hello wood-work & music-friends,
my name is Tim Bernhardt (Timbe), I'm a german artist, musician and a musical instruments maker with 25 years of experience. My speciality is the 'wood of the desert'.

In 2008, together with a small colective, I founded the Agave-School (Pita-Escuela), a non-profit organization and school with a focus on wood-work, music, nature & sostainable living, dedicated to artistic environmental education. Located in the heart of a small eco-village of a Natural Park, our school is found in a green oasis in the most arid area in Europe, where we live off-grid with self-sustainable water and power supply.

WITH 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, together with a small team, we create a wide range of high-quality and unique musical instruments and handicrafts. Our products are handmade with passion for music and respect for our planet, crafted from finely selected wood of the Agave plant (Pita), a true 100% sustainable resource obtained from the only desert in Europe. This incomparable material, that could be described as a mixture of bamboo and balsa, is harvested by us once the plant has finished its life-cycle and is completely dead. It is fast-growing (approx. 1.5m/week), very light in weight, beautiful, durable, easy to work with, has great educational value, and endless possibilities.

As we have a great stock of selected raw materials, we are currently looking for motivated people who can give us a hand in the creation of our products, especially SKILLED WOOD-WORKERS (or people who want to become that) with self-initiative and an advanced desire to grow, learn, share and to explore an inovative and sustainable material. As well we welcome anybody who is good in marketing, 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,
