    Description

    Etant malade, j’ai du retourner en France, je ne sais pas quand et si je pourrais retourner au Bresil. En attendant j’airais Besoin d’une personne de confiance pouvant continuer mon activité.

    Eu sou doente et voltei na Franca para tentar de resolver. Esperando de ver se a saude amelioro, necessito de uma pessao de confiança que pode continuir o que eu inicio no lugar.

    Hello,
    I am a french citizen living for 3 years in a farm, here in Brazil. The farm is located in the Chapada dos Veadeiros, 300km in the North from Brasilia.

    The chapada dos Veadeiros is a well know area for alternative tourism. It is also the main reserve of water in Brazil. There are plenty of waterfalls in this area where the bresilian people loves to go.

    The thing I like in here is that we are in the middle of Cerrado, which is the savannah with the largest biodiversity in the world. There are a lot of endemic plants and animals you won't see anywhere else.
    The farm is located in rural area very well preserved. There is no agro-industry around so the land is chemical free.

    The farm owns 4 water sources which never get empty and a 80m deep artesian well. The irrigation of the land is done using the gravity principle. The atmosphere is not polluted and there is no chemtrail.
    The weather is ideal for the land culture and for the people there is no need of house heater or cooler, most of the time we can live outside. For me, this land is a true Noah's ark.

    I try as much as I can to avoid buying medecines or food to the industries. Instead, I choose to have a healthy diet, be autonome by eating the food which grows on my land and go toward simplicity.
    To earn my living, I have an activity around social and eco-tourism. I rent 3 rooms equipped with a bathroom with breakfast and sometimes even the diner included. I also sell my homemade products (marmelades, dry fruits, honey, coffee,...) in the markets around.

    Bonjour, je suis Française et je vis depuis 3 ans dans une ferme au Bresil. La ferme est située à 300km de Brasilia dans le Goias. La région de la chapada dos Veadeiros est une région de tourisme alternatif. Cette région est appelé la caisse d'eau du Bresil, il y a de nombreuses cascades que les Bresiliens aiment aller voir. Ce qui m'attire moi dans ce coin perdu c'est que nous sommes sur la limite du parc de la chapada en plein dans le Cerrado. Le Cerrado est la savane qui a le plus de bio diversité au monde. Il y a beaucoup de plantes endémiques et une faune que vous ne trouvez pas ailleurs. La ferme est dans une zone très rural et très préservée. L'agro-industrie est très loin de nous, les terres sont propres, la ferme possède 4 eaux de sources qui ne tarissent jamais ainsi qu'un puis artésien de 80m de profondeur. L'irrigation est faite par gravité. Pas de Pollution atmosphérique et pas de chemtral. Le climat est idéal pour les plantations. Pour qui veut vivre simplement pas besoin de clim ou de chauffage, on vis beaucoup dehors. Vu le contexte politique social économique environnemental en Europe mais aussi mondialement, pour moi ce lieu est une sorte d'arche de Noe.
    J'essaie autant que possible d'arrêter de faire vivre les industries alimentaires ou pharmaceutiques, de manger sainement, de vivre en autonomie alimentaire vers une simplicité volontaire. J'ai une petite activité qui me permet de survivre : Je propose du tourisme social ou eco-tourisme. Je loue 3 chambres avec salle de bain petit déjeuner et même repas du soir aux touristes qui viennent visiter, je vend dans les marchés mes confitures, fruits séchés, miel, cafe...

    Uma nota especial para os Brasileiro. Aqui não tem o que voce fala de "comida de verdade" não temos arroz e feijão cada dia. Aqui as refeiçãoes são muitas vezes vegetariana, algumas, vegan. Temos sopas a noite, omelette francesa banana verde, flor da banana, mamão verde. Fazemos trabalho de força mas não necessitamos de arroz e feijão da industria sem nutriente para sobreviver. Nao e necessário de colocar abondancia na mesma para depois jogar fora. Nao usamos muito sal e nem olho nem açúcar que são venenos da industria. O domingo para o almoço, dia da feira, não tem o almoço pronto. Se voce quer mas de o que nos comemos, tem o que comprar o que voce necessita. Obrigada
