    Description

    Hello! We are a couple of artisans graduates in Environmental Management and nature lovers. We changed recently for the farm in Sao Thome das Letras, so we have a lot to do. Our objective is to live self sustainable, degrading as little as possible and help as we can so that human beings can live in greater harmony with the environment.

    Our idea is we plant our food and we exchange it for other products, produce the maximum of our needs as we can, to reduce consumption and apply on our farm and in the city, we learned in Environmental Management College.

    We also work with craft: we do dream catcher, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, using various techniques. We are also open to exchange lessons, parts and materials with the volunteers in this area.

    The farm has a main house and a guest house, where volunteers are. It has capacity for 4 people. It has 2 bedrooms with double bed, a bathroom and a kitchen with stove, fridge, sink and basic household items. It is simple but cozy. There is possibility of camping too. There is enough planted thing that needs maintenance (watering, pruning, harvesting, replanting), a few sheds and a house to be reformed ... in short, has quite a lot to be done. And we have two dogs, two cats and three goats.

    Our volunteer proposal is: 4-5 hours in the morning at the farm after lunch offer mostly made with products of the farm and then free day. We work during the week (Monday through Friday) with free weekend. Anyone who wants to join us in our craft exhibitions can also come!

    We are looking for people who like to exchange experiences, to talk, help, oriented to a more sustainable life, who like outdoors , rustic life and cultural exchange. We believe that all experience is an exchange. Just as we can teach some things, volunteers also end up teaching us a lot!

    Contact us and let's talk!

    Be welcome!
