Lasting change. That’s what Cultiva International Co-Founders Greg and Lucy Jensen had in mind when they started the organization. After moving their family to Guatemala in 2013, the two noticed that many organizations would visit the area, provide temporary help, and leave.
They envisioned something different. Today they’ve worked side-by-side with families to build over 1,200 Square Foot Garden beds, helping them become self-sufficient.
They call this the “Learn and Earn” model, utilizing hands-on participation rather than handouts, to create long-lasting change. During World Square Foot Gardening Day, Greg joined us live from Guatemala to share his story of getting started with Square Foot Gardening and sharing it with others. We guarantee you’ll be inspired!
