Review for SUSTAINABLE HARVEST INTERNATIONAL, Ellsworth, ME, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

My daughter and I traveled to the Toledo district of southern Belize last December. We learned of the efforts of SHI through the Cotton Tree Lodge where we stayed. They helped us set up a day of volunteering with Herminio Cho and another SHI worker at a Mayan home in Santa Teresa village. We helped the Max family with a vegetable garden on their property, discussed the importance of keeping a compost pile to add nutrients back to the soil, and enjoyed a wonderful, simple meal together. Sustainable Harvest is making a lasting impact in the lives of native Mayans of Belize and eco-tourists who visit the area and want to help out.
