Background and Vision

Tierra Colectiva GES is a community land trust located in north Denver's Globeville and Elyria-Swansea neighborhoods. Started through community organizing between neighbors in 2016, Tierra Colectiva has been incubated by GES Coalition and Colorado Community Land Trust since 2017.  


The vision of Tierra Colectiva is organized to prevent the displacement of our neighbors through the creation and preservation of affordable and accessible housing, real-estate and community-ownership of land. The vision of Tierra Colectiva is achieved through community planning and organizing around the collective stewardship of the land, and is supervised by a tripartite board-of-directors, with a 2/3 community majority.

Building community power

Tierra Colectiva is organized with the community, by the community, and for the community. 


Utilizing collective tools based in the history of community organizing, community planning, and collective governance, Tierra Colectiva serves to create (and preserve) affordable and accessible housing for our neighbors most impacted by displacement, while building the collective leadership capacity of neighbors around the long-term stewardship of community-owned land.
