Help us create a better world! 

At Fruit Haven Ecovillage, we are creating a sustainable eco-village and a functioning permaculture farm. We are planting hundreds of fruit trees, restoring farmland that used to be forested. We hope to inspire local farmers to see fruit production as a profitable endeavour, so they stop cutting down more of the Amazon rainforest to raise cattle.

Our community values are important to our unity and success: 
-Responsible care-taking of the land to maintain and increase production of fruits and vegetables
-Permaculture methods of farming
-Consuming raw, unfractionated, unprocessed foods
-Abstinence from addictive mind-altering substances such as alcohol and other drugs
-Maintaining spiritual health through meditation and yoga
-Not harming/domesticating other animals or exploiting them for our gain
-Maintaining a de-centralized, non-hierarchical structure in the community


We are co-creating a sustainable village of people who wish to live in a functioning, mature permaculture food forest and eat raw foods. 
Located in the foothills of the Andes on the edge of the Amazon rainforest, the tropical climate is ideal for durian, marang, rollinia, mamey sapote, jackfruit, papaya, and much more. The farm already produces plantains, pineapples, papayas, sugarcane, oranges, golden dragonfruit, local/wild fruits, and many vegetables.
Contact us to inquire about staying as a volunteer, joining as a community member, or buying into the project as a trustee with your name on the land title


Announcement: There may be a group-buy opportunity in the near future of a 60-hectare lot next to Fruithaven. This lot may become part of the Fruithaven project, complete with a charter. Please send an email to fruithaven.ecuador@gmail.com if you are interested and would like more information.
