Since 2013, Bare Hands Bear Fruit Inc. has aided villages in Central and South America through horticultural and educational projects. After seeing the villages transform into healthier, more economically sound communities; our team reflected on the impact it made to the people, to us, and to our volunteers. That’s when it hit us. Why not take our projects home?
While we remain active in the Americas, we felt the need to support the eradication of urban food deserts in our own backyard. In Spring of 2019, Bare Hands will create and design sustainable, edible landscapes throughout Atlanta’s neighborhoods. We see the opportunity to improve the people of Atlanta’s health and begin a food enlightenment.

- Bare hands
We began in 2013, planting fruit and pine trees for the people of Chijtinimit, a small village in the mountains of Guatemala. During this time, we saw the need for people to take control of their health and food sovereignty. Since then BHBF, condensed to Bare Hands, has planted thousands of fruit trees for communities not only in Guatemala, but in Panama, Brazil, and our newest expansion into Atlanta, Georgia to focus on edible neighborhoods throughout the city.
Overall, our mission is to create nutritious plant landscapes that are sustainable and accessible to communities and smallholder farmers. Essentially, we want kids to be able to pick their food from trees as they walk home from school.
