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 and getting the legal security of your name on a title.

There is an opportunity to buy into Fruit Haven! One of our members / co-owners lives in Vilcabamba with his family and has a successful raw food business. They have recently been doing well and are wanting to expand the business, which is a great way to spread the word about raw food. They are very happy to have been a part of the FruitHaven project for this long, however, they wish to sell their 10% share in FruitHaven's original 30 hectare lot, in order to have more funds to invest into their business.

This 10% share, in addition to granting 10% of property ownership with name on the title, also comes with an agreement among the other 4 owners that grant a 0.8 hectare lot in the eastern part of the property to be developed as one pleases, as well as a 0.09 hectare (30x30 meters) "casita lot" towards the front part of the property (near the river) for easy access to build a house.
It also comes with an obligation to follow certain community guidelines, as well as an ongoing project budget (Which generally would not be more than $20/month for a 10% share unless all owners agree upon a higher budget). The project budget will eventually be mitigated by fruit sales and events/retreat rentals/tourist revenue/etc.
