Semilla Nueva is participatory, community-driven and asset-based. This is the key to a sustainable community based organization if it is to meet the needs of their constituency for the long term. what is interesting, aside from the cutting edge food justice work they engage in, is their leadership structure. keep your eyes on this organization for models for sustainable agriculture.

Semilla Nueva has all the ingredients for success as a nonprofit: a tremendous knowledge of the context in which they work; a commitment to knowing and listening to their beneficiaries; a values-driven, honest, and humble approach; and a bright and caring staff. They, and the farmers they work with, deserve our support and encouragement as they continue to make a difference in the lives and livelihoods of Guatemalans.
