  • Description

    Description

    Our project, started in 2016. Our main objective is to produce organic, sustainable and fair food, happier people, healthier environment and income generation, all at the same time.

    We have now 2,5 hectares where we've started to make it real. Inspired by the syntropical model of agriculture, we have tree lines between the vegetable garden beds. We're commercializing it directly to the final consumer, with a system inspired by the CSA model. (Community Supported Agriculture)

    The work here basically consists into: preparing the vegetable garden's beds, seeding, planting, taking care of the growing plants, harvesting and taking care of the house you'll live in (cooking, cleaning, organizing, etc).
    Breakfast and dinner are usually prepared collectively. Lunch, during the week, is prepared and served for everyone who's working with us.
    The work routine is quite intense here. You need to be willing to wake up with the sunrise, work outside (at the vegetables garden) every morning from Monday to Friday, plus 2 afternoons, even it's sunny or rainy,

    We live in kind of a village, composed by workers houses and the volunteers community house :)
    The housekeeping is a responsibility of the people who lives in the house.

    Volunteers are always very welcome all year round (we don't truly have a winter here:)
    Persons of all ages, genders, areas of knowledge, citizenships, are welcome!
    We speak Portuguese, Spanish, English, French and "ein bisschen deutsch".

    You can stay with us from a minimum of two weeks, till two months (extendable).

    To understand everything better, ask us for our PDF document :)

    We are now some people engaged with the project:

    > Flavia, the idealizer of the project and it's first worker. A social scientist, worried about the world's woes, trying to find practical ways to grow the world a better place to be. Responsible for the main organization of the project, administration, sales, communication and marketing. Lives in the farm with Samuel in their house.

    > Cristiano, first employee, grown in the countryside, has always worked with the earth, working hard with Flavia since the beginning. Today, with Samuel and Joana, doing the "ground work", he is the main responsible for the machines work. Lives into the farm with his wife and son.

    > Samuel, ecologist and environmentalist, agroforester, dreaming high and making it happen, responsible for the production of the vegetable garden. Lives with Flavia in their house.

    > Victor, also an ecologist, an artist, a poet. Is the responsible for logistics, volunteers recruitment, financial and "support for the project supporters" :) Lives in the Farm, in a house with Victor.

    > Joana, most recent part of the vegetable garden's team! A multitasking woman! She does everything that's needed for the project to bloom!

    The Farm is located in Itatiba, into the state of São Paulo. Nearby Campinas, 90km from the city of São Paulo.
    Come to work with us! We love to host and work with different people!
