Now, this agricultural method is experiencing a revival. Some locals have founded businesses based on the concept of chinampas. They sell crops grown in traditional floating gardens. People respond very well, so demand becomes a motivation to keep farming on floating gardens.
According to the U. N Food and Agriculture organization, chinampas have huge potential. They can help farmers adapt to climate changes, preserve agricultural biodiversity, and even reduce poverty. That is why these floating gardens were selected as a Globally important Agricultural Heritage System.
The history of Aztec floating gardens is a reminder that sometimes good ideas can be forgotten. Still, it's never too late to bring them back. By the way, modern chinampas are open to tourists, so if you want you can visit them in Mexico!
