Mission

We preserve the environment by partnering with families to improve well-being through sustainable farming.

What We Do

In Central America, inadequate farming practices cause devastating poverty and deforestation. The harmful cycle of slash-and-burn farming not only destroys tropical forests but does not produce enough to meet the basic needs of a farmer's family.

Sustainable Harvest International helps people + the planet.

With generous support from donors, we've worked with families in rural farming communities in Central America since 1997. Using organic vegetable gardens, wood-conserving stoves, seed saving and a host of other projects, our local field trainers work together with families, individuals and communities to preserve our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty. Our five-phase approach to solving the agricultural, ecological and economic problems of Central America is innovative, hands-on, and long-term.
