ROOTS


BARE HANDS IS A NONPROFIT AGRICULTURAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION PROVIDING NUTRITIOUS CROP ALTERNATIVES FOR COMMUNITIES AND SMALLHOLDER FARMERS.


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 a need for people to take control of their health and bridge the disconnect between grower and consumer.

Bare Hands is currently developing edible gardens in Atlanta, Georgia, and a greenhouse in Antigua, Guatemala. Our projects focus on addressing the universal health crisis by providing nutritious and accessible food. See our newest projects below.

EDIBLE GARDENS

Bare Hands is planting edible vegetation for the Chosewood Park community. Plants will be landscaped throughout unused spaces, sidewalks, and parks.

GREENHOUSE

Bare Hands is developing greenhouse networks. Our first project, in Antigua, Guatemala, will be filled with nutritious cash crops. This means lower risk, higher yielding, and quality plants for farmers.
