Mission Statement

Seeds for a Future is empowering rural Guatemalan families through food security and nutrition. Our integrated approach weaves together sustainable agriculture, nutrition education, and increased income opportunities to achieve lasting community development. We partner with rural families to build and maintain 'backyard farms’ with a rich variety of native plants and herbs, plus sources of small animal protein. Together, we are sowing the seeds of self-reliance and nourishing rural communities for generations to come.


Seeds for a Future's purpose is to foster rural community development that integrates permaculture, nutrition education, and micro-business opportunities.

Based on the coaching and mentoring of families to provide the skills and materials they need for success, the Seeds self-reliance model also fosters the development of "home-grown" leadership, which facilitates the Program's spread throughout the community.

The concepts and methods used by Seeds for a Future can be successfully applied in rural communities worldwide if proper attention is given to local environmental, cultural, and community factors.

The Program has enjoyed great success, with over 5,000 families completing the Program in 19 communities across Guatemala, and it continues to grow as new families enroll.

In addition, we have conducted an Extension version to begin replicating our Program in four distinct regions of Guatemala. In these locations, 4 to 6 new extensionists have been trained, and each is coaching from 20 to 25 families.
