Important notice: Earthwise Valley closed in 2010 due to the unexpected passing of one of its founders. This site is maintained as-is in tribute to the many volunteers who lent their time and energy to the Valley.

Earthwise Valley is a large project and we would appreciate your help. You can contribute by donating to our campaign. Earthwise Valley relies on community donations – your support – to continue our work.

Why give to Earthwise?

1. Our work is very cost-effective. We do not have high administration costs or expensive offices in a city. Our field work is done by dedicated volunteers from all over the world and we get on with it, come rain or shine.

2. Your money works HERE and NOW. A visit to the Earthwise Valley will literally show you how your money is spent – for nursery plantings, alternative power generation, and organic gardening.
