We are a group of people that have a shared ideal to preserve nature and live harmoniously alongside all living things and our fellow men. We started this beautiful Volunteer Project at the end of 2006, thanks to the support of the many people who have helped us to improve our Eco Village and stood in solidarity with our community.

Eco Truly Park is a beautiful Peruvian Pacific coast ecological, artistic community founded on Vaisnava principles, strategically located on Chacra y Mar beach, a district of Aucallama, in the province of Huaral, one hour by bus or car (63 km) north of the capital city, Lima. We live together according to principles of non-violence, simple living and elevated thinking, and visitors can learn and experience how it is possible to live happily in harmony with nature, others, and themselves. We are looking for people that are basically open-minded and want to practice tolerance, compassion and patience.

The architecture and values of the community are in part inspired by Indian traditional teachings and lifestyle. We were the first ecological educational center in Peru, and have inspired similar successful projects in neighboring countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia. The community is located at 2.5 m above sea level and previously consisted of sandy, unworkable land, but in the last 18 years we have developed a unique ecological program run by an increasing number of residents and volunteers, with the goal of becoming fully sustainable and self-sufficient.

Today our community is visited by people from Lima and all over the world, who are able to experience an alternative way of life whilst staying at Eco Truly. Due to this influx of visitors, the surrounding area of Huaral has been positively influenced in terms of the development of ecological consciousness. According to recent professional studies, Eco Truly Park programs have become a model of sustainable alternative solutions for the extreme poverty that still affects more than half of Peruvian citizens (over 14 million people) living in rural and marginalized urban villages. Nowadays, Eco Truly Park is recognized as an important tourist destination by local government and the Peruvian media, having received over 75,000 visitors since its inception.

Eco Truly Park is part of a network of organic farms and Eco Villages across the Americas and Europe. All Eco Villages aim to make friends who will carry our message of caring for our beloved land and simple living to other parts of the world. Principled Vaisnavas (a sanscrit word meaning �person with a good heart�) can not only help in the development of our Eco Villages, but by living with others who share the same ideals will also learn how to be the best that they can be and live harmoniously.

Through this network, we care for others through an awareness of nature and universal love.

As per agreement for other net participants we can offer overnight facilities, deliver a lecture and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
