Who Are We?

Who Are We?

Mayan Eco Homestead was founded by the Jensen and Denning families. They are passionate about making a positve, permanent difference by teaching people new skills instead of giving them handouts that only fulfill temporary needs. (Read more about The Challenge.)

Greg and Lucy Jensen have lived full-time in Guatemala with their four sons since 2011. They direct and manage Mayan Eco Homestead. Greg and Lucy speak fluent Spanish and are slowly learning the local Mayan dialect. They can arrange any custom volunteer trips to Guatemala through their contacts with flights, hotels, transportation, and tours. They are also owners of MayanRunningAdventure.com, a trail running vacation company.

Greg and Rachel Denning write for DiscoverShareInspire.com and are continuing their world travels, with their six children.

Dennings and Jensens

We’ve already successfully orchestrated a Self-Reliance Project with a local family, helping them to start their own small homestead with garden boxes, chickens, worm composting, tilapia and pigs, as well as a composting toilet and solar hot water. This project has helped them to improve their nutrition and living conditions, and become more self-reliant.
