Atitlan Organics is a small-scale, permaculture-inspired, direct-to-market farm located in the mountains of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Our goal is to grow nutrient dense food for sale within the local communities, while providing training in organic production and permaculture to local farmers and international students alike.

Atitlan Organics is proud to be working with a number of NGOs and development organizations to assist in food security and agricultural development projects around Guatemala. From family gardens and grey water circles to community seed banks and dairy goat distribution programs, Atitlan Organics remains active in the community in which they farm.
We feel that through biodiversity and knowledge of a diverse set of plants, a new form of agriculture will emerge. This new agriculture will be one that will be incredibly low input and non-capital intensive, one that can be practiced on very small parcels of marginal land and still yield incredible amounts of food and other useful items.
