  • Description

    Description

    We're a learning community practicing agroforestry in the green belt of Minas Gerais capital. We love to sow seeds, to help trees develop and to feed ourselves and our surroundings with the healthy fruit of our labor. Together we're capable of enrichening the soil, recovering river springs and awakening to a new feeding consciousness.

    What else ...

    Not far from here is a very big and famous open-air museum (Inhotim) that can be a good weekend trip. Volunteers have also liked to walk around the nearby village (good sights on the way) and go to the waterfalls (10 minute walk distance). At night we talk about the day activities, share our learnings and often watch movies =)
