"My name is Mateo," he greets me in his native Que'chi language. Mateo Salam has the boyish looks of a gentle fourteen year old, yet the aspirations and vision of a Mayan elder.  Only eighteen years of age, Mateo came to the village of San Pablo after having completed his high school degree at the technical school, Julian Cho.

Bill McKibben,

"It's pretty clear that the agro-industrial complex is just as vulnerable and brittle as the too-big-to-fail banks. So figuring out what comes next--how to grow the food the world needs to eat  in a way that actually can last far into the future--is an essential task. SHI is on the front lines, and in the places that really matter."
