About Sueño de Vida

If you don’t know Kristen Krash and her partner Juan’s work building—quite literally from the dirt on up--please take the time to know it. I have just settled in with her latest newsletter and find myself, once again, marveling at her capacity to produce AMAZING. She informs, inspires, and feeds with every word and image.

One step you can take is taking a look at Kristen’s work, maybe even supporting it on a monthly basis like I do. I guarantee you will see something in it that inspires you.

--Julia Romano, Patreon Sustainer

Do you really want to do something about climate change? AND get our organic artisanal cocoa nibs, dark chocolate and special gifts delivered directly to your door? Sueño de Vida is an off-grid organic farm and sustainable living center in the heart of Ecuador´s cloud forest--one of the most biodiverse but at-risk areas in the world.

We transform land stripped by logging into flourishing ecosystems. Instead of cutting trees down to plant crops, we grow food by planting entire forests of fruit, nut, and spice producing trees--including the prized heirloom  Aroma Nacional cacao of Ecuador. We harvest, dry, and roast our cacao right here at the farm and send it directly to you.

We also work with our local comminity, providing fair-paying jobs with good working conditions. We live right here on the farm and do a lot of the work ourselves.  Your support goes DIRECTLY to plant trees, regenerate forests, fight climate change, and create a world where people can live in balance with nature. 

Kristen moved to Ecuador to build a sustainable home and learning center, where she and her partner Juan, have built their dwellings and reforested the land through food forestry, permaculture and sustainable building practices. I have learned many things from Kristen as my yoga teacher, but I have the utmost gratitude, respect and admiration for her choosing the path of living with the earth, immersing herself in nature, aiding the restoration of the land, and holding space for others to do the same.
