How You Can Help

Your support allows us to come alongside families who have suffered from chronic poverty and chronic malnutrition. You provide more than a meal. You provide a relationship. Your support means that families can go through our training programs so they can grow food at their own home and have access to ongoing education and mentorship. Food in bellies and hope in hearts.

Square Foot Gardening is an amazing way to make growing your own food at home easy. That’s just one of the reasons we’ve used the method to install more than 2,000 garden boxes here in Guatemala. Thanks to the Square Foot Gardening Foundation, when you sponsor a garden box for a family in Guatemala, you get access to their very robust introductory course on square foot gardening. You’ll learn how to get started, how to plan your garden, how to build a square foot garden, how to plant, and how to maintain — plus you get compost recipes, garden planning worksheets, planting reference charts, bed building charts, and further resources. PLUS you will be helping a family in Guatemala, who has suffered from chronic malnutrition, learn how to grow their own food and begin building a better life for their family.

If we give away food without doing anything to address chronic poverty we perpetuate a cycle of dependence. If we come and offer a relationship but offer no practical help we are like false prophets of hope.

At Cultiva, we do both. We address practical needs today and enter into a mentoring relationship to address root problems.

We put food in bellies and hope in hearts.
