Ruta Verde

Our Mission is to create a sustainable, reciprocal, and regenerative future by sharing knowledge of practices that help to protect People, Progress, and the Planet.

We are a Non-Profit aimed at supporting the advancement for sustainable development practices. We are an indigenous-led organization, influenced by the reciprocal philosophies of the Andean people that grew alongside the Andes mountains of South America. We understand that there is a deep ancestral connection between humans and the earth we inhabit. Generations of people before us understood how to live in balance with nature, and we are certain we can learn to do that again.

Ways We Help

Foggy Forest


Ruta Verde works to reforest spaces with native species. Our current efforts lie in building a Walipini Greenhouse to help grow more native tree seedlings to help in the restoration of a space that was ravaged by fires 20 years ago. The project located in Chelan, WA is in it's beginning stages. If you have a student project you'd like to conduct on our property, email us at!

Adaptive and Sustainable Technologies Research

Ruta Verde works to test and bring technologies and techniques that help to bring sustainably-grown resources. For example, we work to develop and test aquaponics systems and walipini greenhouses to test their efficiency in certain climates and find room for design improvement. The knowledge obtained will be shared freely for others to develop their own sustainable systems.

Studying in Library


We believe sharing knowledge is important for human development and to connect with the natural cycles of growth. And to engage in this cycle our team is also constantly learning. We are currently engaged in courses with the Ayni School to develop our leadership and organizational skills to work with reciprocity. If you're a student looking to learn as well, we can sponsor the cost for you to take their courses as well, send an email to and ask us!
