I met Juaquin in the fall of 2010 and started working with him on a variety of projects such as the Jardin de Guadelupe in Mexico, DragonFly School, Synergia Ranch and Dandelion Ranch in Santa Fe. His wealth of knowledge, passion, sense of humor and vitality are truly remarkable.

Juaquín is contagious, his passion for life, people and other beings, especially the green ones, transmits in such an enthusiastic and wonderful way that a whole new perception and admiration for plants starts to open around the heart. He helped me connect to plants in a beautiful way. I also noticed that he has achieved such a mastery in horticulture that it permeates into other aspects of life; he can talk technically about preparing a flower bed and at the same time reflect on perfection and art while dancing around with his shovel.Alan Heinze, Graduate Student, Sustainable Tropical Forestry, Copenhagen, Denmark.
