We live in a time of great opportunity and great responsibility. People are waking up to the call of deep change for sustainability. As new owners of Finca Esperanza Verde, we are committed to supporting the environmental conservation of the farm’s most precious resources: the forest and the seven fresh water springs that supply abundant water to the farm.
We will continue to support the Sister Communities of San Ramon and other community organizations in their local programs. SCSRN promotes people-to-people connections and supports social and economic development projects that build friendship, understanding, justice and respect for the people of Nicaragua.
As we take on the stewardship of FEV this year, our greatest desire is to keep working together to improve the quality of life of rural Nicaragua while preserving and fostering its local culture and natural environment.
FEV reopens Feb. 10th
FEV in Oprah Magazine
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, David Zucchino, writes about his trip to FEV in the UU World, Fall, 2011.
The rutted road continues up a lush mountainside, past banana plants heavy with fruit and tree canopies inhabited by howler monkeys and sloths, to an outpost high in the rain forest. Carved out of the mountain 4,000 feet up, the setting offers spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley far below.
