Mission Statement

The goal of Hoja Nueva is to develop a successful permaculture program with the communities of Lucerna and Palma Real, located on the Las Piedras River Basin in the Southern Peruvian Amazon. We are an experimental center that integrates research, conservation, education, sustainable community development, and reforestation into our everyday permaculture efforts. We also consult and cooperate with local agricultural associations and other non-profit organizations to ensure reliable food production while maintaining healthy forests. Hoja Nueva will incorporate ecosystem monitoring, long-term soil research, sustainable practices and extensive community outreach to attain its objectives. We aim to provide a practical framework for permaculture practices in lowland rainforest environments that can be used regionally and globally to safeguard a future where both humans and nature can thrive.

Description

Hoja Nueva operates out of Rio Piedras, Peru, and our linked 501c3 operates out of Seattle in Washington State. Our U.S. nonprofit works daily to raise awareness and funds for our efforts in the Peruvian Amazon, and we are always looking for passionate volunteers to assist in these efforts!
