The Garden of Hope believes that access to nature and safe, healthy food is a human right. We are a community permaculture garden providing children and youth with a space to connect with nature, foster joy, and develop life skills.

Guatemala ranks sixth in chronic malnutrition in the whole world*. Addressing malnutrition through food sovereignty and nutrition programming is a key goal of the Garden of Hope.

We provide learning experiences in permaculture and nutrition, including how to:

  • grow organic food,

  • care for the soil,

  • respect the environment,

  • harvest,

  • cook creatively and nutritiously,

  • fertilize the soil naturally by composting,

  • value native plant species.
