25 family gardens established in three communities.

Sustainable farming practices require education

Families struggle to grow food without proper seed and training

People in the Mayan region struggle to have enough food for their families.  Poor families lack the funds to purchase seed and also do not have the training necessary to start a vegetable garden.

S.H.A.R.E. pays for professional training in the areas of agriculture families are unfamiliar with.

25 Mayan families will receive plants, seeds and inputs for home gardens along with training and technical assistance through the growing season.

Project Leader: Carl Fletcher

As a 40+ year donor I’ve supported S.H.A.R.E.'s practical and effective projects that help people help themselves. Upon retirement from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs, I volunteered as a Projects Committee member. I am now Project Manager for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras projects. I am a Professional Agrologist and a Canadian Association of Farm Advisors member. I value that each S.H.A.R.E. project requires the beneficiaries to Pass on a benefit to others in recognition of the help the project has given them.
