Frijolatorio

A garden workshop; an intimate nest were ideas rest and flower; a mini-museum of beans.

Of the 37,890 kinds of beans that exist, my collection has close to 250. Some were gifted by friends or seed guardians, others in farmer’s markets, and the rest bean-hopping along remote towns and cities in the New World. After making sure all treasures are safely stored, very carefully I select those which I find rarest or most beautiful. Then I plant and sowed them in family farms in El Retiro and Fredonia, Antioquia.
