About us

El Infinito sees Guatemala as fertile ground for growth and we view education as the main vehicle to achieve positive environmental and social changes. Our purpose is to provide access to education, and examples of positive social and cultural changes. We do this by bringing people together through cultural events and providing a physical location for the community to host forums, workshops focusing on urban sustainability, and by providing hands on educational experiences- using culture as a tool to engage, empower and inspire. Food and art are integral parts of culture, and El Infinito uses both to demonstrate sustainability, while highlighting the importance of health both for humans and the environment. We do this by demonstrating local and organic foods, connecting with, supporting and promoting local farmers, selling seeds, trees and local food, and having classes in cooking, gardening, composting, nutrition, and food preserving.

En El Infinito vemos Guatemala como una tierra fertil para el crecimiento, y vemos la educacion como el mejor medio para lograr los mas positivos cambios ambientales y sociales. Nuestro proposito es proveer el acceso a educacion y demostraciones de cambios positivos en nuestra cultura y sociedad. Esto lo logramos reuniendo gente en eventos culturales presentando un local donde la comunidad puede realizar foros y talleres enfocados en sostenibilidad urbana, y proveyendo actividades educativas y practicas, utilizando la cultura como una herramienta participativa e inclusiva, empoderando e inspirando el cambio. El arte y la comida son partes integrales de la cultura, El Infinito usa ambas para demonstrar la sostenibilidad, al mismo tiempo que remarcamos la importancia de la salud, tanto para los seres humanos como para nuestra Madre Tierra. Mostrando alimentos locales y organicos, conectando, apoyando y promoviendo a los productores locales, vendiendo semillas, arboles y alimentos producidos localmente, realizando talleres de cocina, jardinería, compostaje, nutrición y preservación de los alimentos.
