Hi wood-working, nature and music-friends!!
People call me Timbe, I`m a german artist, innovator, educator, dreamer, musician and musical instruments maker with 25 years of experience. My speciality is the `wood of the desert` - 100% Agave.

In 2008 I founded the Agave-School (Pita-Escuela), a center for environmental artistic education registrated as a non-profit organization mainly focused on wood-work, music, nature and sostainable living. Located in a green oasis of a Natural Park, in the most arid area in Europe, our center is found in the heart of an eco-village where we live off-grid with self-sustainable water and power supply.

Our center provides environmental education based on arts creation, nature and music. In the last years the experience of our work has prooved a positive impact on the creation of environmental awareness in our visitors, which makes us see our initiative as an important building block in the development of a society that is thinking sustainably and future-oriented.

In order to get more people visiting our project OUR CENTER NEEDS SKILLS IN:
Marketing, planing-, financing-, and funding strategy, social media, web-design, online sales, etc...

WITH 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE we also 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 desert where we live.
This incomparable material, that could be described as a mixture of bamboo and balsa, is harvested by hand, 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.

Having a great wood-stock, we are 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 a certain amount of self-initiative and an advanced desire to grow, learn, share and to explore an inovative and sustainable material.


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 and love,
