Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

The rapid environmental deterioration and depletion of Guatemala's natural resources is undermining its rich bio-diversity and limiting its potential for economic development. We can sow chaya, moringa and a lot of plants, make a wonderfull Organic Mayan Farm.

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if organic farming can feed the world and eradicate hunger. This new kind of “super food” is emerging that promises to save more lives than high-tech armor ever could.
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

-Implementing projects of recycled materials -Helping to devise ecological solutions for resource management -Building and maintaining trails -Cataloging plant species -Giving workshops regarding eco-friendly practices to locals - Promote Volunteer Abroad, and invite people from all the world to como visit, so we can give our communitys Education, Social Welfare, Environment, Small Business, Health and Construction.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Reduce the rapid environmental deterioration and depletion of Guatemala's natural resources is undermining its rich bio-diversity and limiting its potential for economic development. Organic Plantation can help reduce the energy input into farming by about 70 percent. Organic food offers health advantages and has become a lifestyle choice in many societies. We can Also make medicine, can also give organic food for animals, like chicken organic etc.

Non
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Lets be Green Revolution, “Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people.It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects.Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved.” Sustainable agriculture is a more holistic approach to farming than conventional in that it relies on ecosystem services and is typically much less detrimental to the surrounding landscape.Sustainable agriculture is a natural way to produce food and has a numbe of social, economic, and environmental benefits.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

The benefits that organic farming can bring for wildlife protection and animal welfare are now widely recognised, but at a time of rising food prices and a predicted global population of 9 billion by 2050, feeding the world using organic and other agro-ecological farming methods is not just about farming differently and moving from a business-as-usual food system to organic business-as-usual. It is about big changes to how we produce and consume food. It is about investing in the development of smallholder agriculture and local markets in the Community, but it also means action to end food waste, estimated at one-third of all food produced globally. Critically, it is also about changing diets to make them healthier and more sustainable for the planet.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

The natural resource base upon which agriculture depends, soils, water and biodiversity, is being degraded. Supplies of fossil fuels used to make inputs, and minerals such as phosphate, will become increasingly scarce. This means that we urgently need to improve the resource use efficiency of farming systems. As well as changing our farming systems, it’s as much about eating differently, feeding our livestock differently and wasting much less food.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

This future space will be a place where people can come see, do, eat, and learn various aspects about sustainable farming practices, we can do tours for the people and they also can have massages and facial with the organic plants of the farm, Its a project that can give work to the people of the community and we can have tourits to have an organic space to visit. We can also sell the plants and help community and school of the founds we get.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

We look for culturally appropriate, market-driven and scalable solutions. Many projects push non-native ‘superfoods’ or labor-intensive and low-profit gardens. Our intervention promotes a better and more economic way to produce a crop farmers already know. It doesn’t depend on convincing farmers through only soil health or family nutrition benefits, but also provides a way to increase their income. With the Thematic Park of Mayan Farm Organic Plants Eco-organic tourism we also can scale quickly because its profitable and there is a stable world market to accept it. People like organic food.

Founding Story

My father was a pineapple farmer here in Guatemala, but unfortunately he got killed and my mother and I hade to go to the USA like an Immigrant person.
