Earth Day, April 20-22, 2021 Restore Our Earth

Sowing Opportunities is focused on the village of Chajmaic, Guatemala developing greenhouse agriculture for food security and livelihood.
In early March 2021, Alfonso Gómez started a mini-greenhouse, planting Swiss chard, in the hopes of beginning a small greenhouse project.
However, it didn’t sprout because the people of Chajmaic didn’t have the on-site technical support. Sowing Opportunities is working on making that a reality, even incrementally. This is difficult to achieve because of the remoteness of the region. > Read Full Post

Thanks to you, the village received food!

In 2020 we delivered groceries nine times to the village of 3,000 people, during the pandemic, and following hurricanes that devastated the area with flooding.


Groceries were delivered to the entire village of 3,000 people for Christmas in Chajmaic, Guatemala (video in English) in December 2020
