During a professional lull I followed my curiosity for sustainable living, NGO development, and culture to Long Way Home in Guatemala. Despite my plan to move about the region I spent the entirety of my 3.5 months working with LWH. During this time I fell in love with the holistic nature of this fresh NGO. From compost latrine fed gardens to eco-concientious vocational education, LWH synthesizes many of the new/old ideas that epitomize grass-roots development. As the Mayan calender predicts an eminent paradigm shift, LWH is building the new American dream-a globally conscious bottom-up approach to sustainable local living.
