We are a non-profit foundation based in Guatemala. In 2017 the first seed was planted by Steve Levine who seeks to address serious undernourishment, negative environmental changes, social and cultural issues; all caused by the lack of education. The foundation focuses on feeding street dogs and on the catch and release program. Steve is guiding the foundation that will connect to the root of the local people through open community gardens that will promote permaculture techniques, animal welfare and recycling. Connecting to the root, the seed, the fruit, the soil and the water.
