We begin the series by taking a look at the big picture to understand how intricately linked people and agave are and have been for thousands of years. When one thinks of a close relationship between plants and people, corn, potatoes, or squash may come to mind. Yet, agave is as diversified and coupled in its relations to people—and people to it—as any other plant. These inaugural presentations will reveal a world of connections, hiding in plain sight either on a hike in the desert or in your glass at the bar.
