  • Description

    Description

    Our family started this place in the far interior of the northeast of Brazil around 10 years ago, when we decided how important could be for next generations understanding about co-creation and colletive programs in the new moment of the planet.
    We are creating a place where the people can reconnected with yourselves through the honey and cashew agroforestry systems. Our family believes on how amazing it is to work with regeneration and enviromental preservation. The techniques we apply here are important for regeneration itself, for the nature and animals, but are also a mindset regeneration, reprograming the tradicional way of living and thinkking of the modern society. We are looking for more engaged people around the world to built places for healing through nature.
    Are you ready to join us?

    Accommodation

    It's a beautiful but simple house, just for workawayers. Two rooms (double beds and single bed/ three single beds) and sofa in the living room with TV and good wi-fi. Wardrobe, shared bathroom with hot bath, equipped kitchen, nice living room and three hammocks. The house can fit 11 people considering the hosts rooms.

    Simple but delicious food will be given to volunteers, we have a small garden with lettuce, kale, carrots, beetroots and tomato. We also have now three little agroforestry areas with some other vegetables. If something more specific is needed we recommend volunteers to buy in the city at their own expenses.

    What else ...

    100km from the farm there is the Serra da Capivara Park which is a very big and famous open-air museum called American Man Museum and Nature Museun, with a lot of archeological evidences about the oldest human found in America. This trip can be a good weekend trip.

    On the property, there are several beautiful birds for birdwatching and an incredible variety of animals (jaguar, armadillo, anteater, fox) to explore...

    It's a 30-minute drive to the nearest local village of Canto do Buriti where you can buy supplies.

    At night we usually talk about the daily activities, share our learnings around the fire, take time to create some art, music, laugh, star gaze, listen to the crickets and share culture and friendship.

    How to get there: From any Brazilian International Airport you can find a Flight to TEREZINA the capital of Piauí State. Then you can take an uber to the bus station, and take a bus to Canto do Buriti (US$ 20). We will pick you up in Canto do Buriti.
