2018 SMA tour: El Charco del Ingenio and Instituto Allende

In the morning Mario, the director of the Botanical Garden and Nature Reserve took us to El Charco del Ingenio. We had a fantastic 3-hour tour of the 170 acre Botanical Garden led by volunteer David, who had previously worked with the education at the Botanical Garden of University of British Columbia, Vancouver. 
After a short introduction to the succulent workshop by Randy we visited the Instituto Allende, weaving studios and the Factory Aurora.
