You can help us plant more food forests
A lot of work we do is being done voluntarily and a lot of plants and trees are being grown by either one of the board members or are being donated.
However, not everything is given for free. Think of tools, machines, material for a drip system, or simply a lot of banana trees. For these things, we need financial support.
With tools and extra resources, we can do our work more efficiently and get more people of different skills to work together on the vision of Orenda.
There are two main ways in which you can help us financially: direct donations or trees and machinery sponsorship.
The help we need
Your donations will ensure we can make our food forests larger.
Once established, a food forest needs to be managed. Though it’s not easy to make a general calculation (because every system may have specific needs) we have a ballpark figure that the management of a food forest costs approximately $1 per square meter per month.
Currently, our food forests take a total of 5,000 square meters. So we require approximately $5,000 per month to maintain them. As a non-profit, we rely on donations and sponsorships to cover our costs.
Please use the bank details below to make your donation.
If you are from the Netherlands, please follow instructions below (for an ANBI status donation).
Sponsor our trees and machines.
Besides donating money, you can also purchase trees and machines for us. Trees are available in all sorts and sizes, of course. On average, 1 tree costs $20. As for the machines, here the costs vary greatly. We have a list of machines we need for daily operation. Please reach out to us for more information.
Alternatively, you can also give your own trees and old machines you don’t need anymore as donations.
We also use financial support to acquire tools and machinery.
Contact us if you would like to donate or sponsor trees and machines.

For donations from the Netherlands (ANBI status)
To donate with an ANBI status, either from the Netherlands or another country, please use the platform from our partners at Hulp aan Curaçao. This organization collects donations to support various non-profit initiatives on Curaçao. Keep in mind, that to make sure your donation goes directly to Orenda, you need to specify that in your transfer.
Please follow the following steps to donate:
- Go to Hulp aan Curacao donate page: click here or use the button below.
- In the donation window, choose the amount you would like to donate.
- Check “Ik doneer graag aan een specifiek project” to donate for a specific project and choose “Voedselbos Curaçao” for Orenda.
- Fill in the rest of the details to continue.
- If you chose to donate via a bank transfer to Hulp aan Curacao instead of using their form, please make sure to include “Orenda/Voedselbos Curaçao” in the description of your transfer.
We appreciate your support!
