Fern's Garden is proud to support Mayan Creations, a company dedicated to supporting the talented artisans of Guatemala. Dennis Gardner came out of retirement to start the company and showcase what he calls "these warm, hard-working, and extremely talented people."

About 250 women in the village of Santiago Atitlan have been working together for about 10 years in one of the most successful small industries in Guatemala. In most cases they shoulder the burden of providing for their families alone, due to the loss of so many Mayan men in the civil war. Thanks partly to the support of Mayan Creations, these women enjoy above average earnings without compromising their cultural heritage and tradition.
