    Due to Coronavirus, we cannot receive volunteers in the next days/weeks!


    We are a family living on a permacultural farm. The farm is located 180 km away from Rio de Janeiro, on the border of Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais.

    The size of our farm is 38 hectars, 20 hectars are rainforest (Mata Atlantica) and there is a river also, our focus is preservation and reforesting.

    At the moment here live 2 adults and 3 kids and we are constantly receiving visitors, who are looking for an alternative lifestyle in harmony with nature. We produce part of our food organicly and we bioconstructed the main house, which has a community kitchen, living room and a bathroom. Water- and electric energy providng is completely off-grid.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    There are some co-living basics :)
    - please wash the plate you used (yes, unfortunatelly we need to say this...)
    - please do not leave garbage behind, when you leave. A big part of trying to live sustainable and in harmony with nature is about lower our consumption and getting conscious of our waste. Plastic is not recycled in Brazil, so please think before you take a plastic bag in a shop.
    - we have limited ressources, we need people who really are looking for an alternative lifestyle and want to come to help us. If you can bring some fruits, vegetables or whole grain food to colaborate it would be very helpful to receive more volunteers.
    - as we generate our whole electrical energy, please be conscious that we can run out of energy, that is not always possible to charge your mobile phone, tablets or other things. It is an interesting exercise to slow down, get offline and rethink about how many electrical energy you actually use every day without noticing it.
    - we have no phone and here in this region there is no cellphone signal.
    - There is no bank or cash machine in Santa Isabel.
    - We have 4 lovely and social cats and 1 dog.
