Katie Miller, Semilla Nueva's Director of Development, has sent us informationn about several trips to Guatemala this summer.
"Basically, the idea behind the work trips is to get you down to Guatemala and into the fields of the family farmers who you supported through your donation with the Global Grant. It's an opportunity not available to many travelers and allows a wonderful intimacy with the families. Along with spending time with the family farmers in their fields and homes, we'll also have time to check out some cool areas of Guatemala like the beach, Antigua (Guate's best colonial city) and Lake Atitlan (just picture a big blue lake with volcanos surrounding it). It's a great experience and I hope some of your club members will take advantage of it!"
