RESTORING RELATIONSHIPS WITH LAND AND PEOPLE
LAND + HEART PROJECT
Buenas! Welcome to Land + Heart Project of Puerto Rico.
Together with travelers, volunteers, students, educators, organizations, farmers, leaders, and more, we foster Fair Food Restoration on the Isla del Encanto based on support, solidarity, permaculture, and cooperation.
"Restoring Relationships with Land and People" means co-creating opportunities for fair farm restoration in Puerto Rico, upholding the pillars and practice of permaculture:
Earth Care, our Ecological Impact;
People Care, our Sociological Impact; and Fair Share, our Economic Impact.
Reverence for the living Island and her natural inhabitants is the heart of our work. Land + Heart Project was created in solidarity with our Puertorriquenx friends, family, fellow humans and citizens. This is our home, these are our pana. We build our programs to meet the real needs of Fair Food Restoration for Puerto Rico. Our specialty is to share this wonder with you! We invite the open-hearted and the future-minded to experience these values put into action, together.
Let us design an unforgettable experience for you! Viajes + Comiendo that support fair restoration, local projects, and more. Experience Puerto Rico's beautiful local food, community, and ecology with our network of lodging, nourishment, adventures, farms, gardens, markets, volunteer opportunities, inspiring projects, and diverse landscapes. Restore yourself in harmony with the earth, support local, and build global friendships. We know the terrain - we've been traveling, eating, and volunteering around the island all the time we have lived here!
Affordable trip plans available for individuals and groups. Traveling with Land + Heart Project supports our farm work, too!
Land + Heart Project supports fair farm restoration through permaculture and cooperation. We run volunteer brigades, educational programs, partnership programs for long-term support, and distribute resources to real folks restoring the island with love!
Everything we do is to fortify the foundation of ecological farming that fairly preserves Puerto Rico's land, people, and environment.
Educational and cultural exchange programs bringing labor, funds, and diverse income streams to farms are the heart of our work with you. This system creates opportunities for service learning and sustainable business skill development for folks from the island and around the world.
Land + Heart Project is mapping the many ingenuitive eco-proyectos on the island, streamlining the ways people and organizations can support fair recovery in Puerto Rico. Sharing resources fosters cooperation, community-building, and economy of scale, over time allowing us to co-create worker- and member-owned enterprise.
Our map and calendar are designed to simplify service, learning, and travel, supporting exclusively local efforts, and making complex navigation a whole lot easier. Puerto Rico is home to some of the most inspiring environmental and social ecology in the world! Individuals and groups who want to support the island and co-create lifechanging experiences can reach out any time.
