Ethno-Botanical Garden

Friday we took a 2-hour tour of the Ethno-Botanical Garden in Oaxaca. Focusing as much on the history, cultural uses and significance of trees and plants as their biological names and characteristics, we found it interesting. The Pipe Organ Cactus grows so rapidly as to serve as fences and walls in many places. Pear, Barrel, Ocotillo and many more were present, all native to the Central Valley of this area, and creating a lush Cactus Museum here.
