“Seeds for a Future provides the resources needed for creating food security and self-reliance anywhere.”

From its inception, Seeds for a Future has prioritized creating a food-security Program that’s replicable.

We’re sharing many of our resources to demonstrate how the Program works for its participants and to assist others who may want to create a similar program.

The Program provides rural citizens in Guatemala with the skills they need to take control of their lives and live healthier, happier, and more prosperous lives. If you have questions about any of our resources, please contact us.
