Garden of Hope Permaculture Center


The Garden of Hope Permaculture Center, located on Finca Azotea in Jocotenango, is a community permaculture garden providing children and youth with a space to connect with nature, foster joy, and develop life skills.  Our activities include:

Environmental Education

The Garden of Hope provides gardening classes throughout our region of Sacatepéquez.  Our curriculum is creative, hands on and based in permaculture principles.  Our environmental education program strives to make our outdoor classroom space and services accessible for anyone.  We impart classes to students of all ages and backgrounds.  We provide services through honorary donations and/or exchange programs.  To plan a field trip or organize gardening classes at your school or organization contact:

Community Development and Nutrition

We provide a variety of opportunities for our community to get involved in the garden.  Our Family Days are a community favorite.  These special days happen once a month.  An average of 50 people of all ages show up, help maintain and build in the garden, play garden related games, listen to music, paint, cook, eat a healthy snack. Each family leaves with a bundle of produce from the garden.

Learning Garden

We have an acre permaculture garden complete with an outdoor classroom, kitchen, nine chickens, four different composting systems, and therapy spaces.
