    Description

    Hi everyone ! We own a 18 hectare animal cruelty free farm situated 2 hours from Rio de Janeiro. 45 minutes by plane to Vitória and 1 hour by car. We are located in the beautiful town Santa Teresa. Santa Teresa is the most famous for being a hummingbird paradise. We are looking for creative people that like to work with the nature and have a good time ! We are also looking for people who like to help cook vegan/vegetarian food. We have many projects going on. Mainly turning our land into a syntrophic agriculture agroforestry farm. We also have some very nice Ecological construction projects going on, a house and a big ecological swimming pool.

    We have 10 hectares of beautiful jungle (Mata Atlantica) and 8 hectares of farmland. We have a river with crystal clear water coming straight out of the national reserve, passing 850 meters through our property, with many natural pools and little waterfalls. Our neighbor is the amazing Augusto Ruschi National reserve with over 4000 hectares of protected forest. We are often visited by many animals like Capuchin monkeys, deer, foxes, armadillos and many other mammals. Augusto Ruschi was a famous Brazilian biologist specializing in hummingbirds. We are located at 750 meters of altitude so the temperature is very comfortable summer and winter and we have an ocean view.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The difference between us (Myself Kilian and Nina) is that we have had alot of experience as workawayers. We had some fantastic experiences and some terrible ones ! In this light we will treat whoever comes as we would like to be treated.

    You can always learn alot depending on your intrests.
    Agroforestry techniques, knowledge about plants fruits and trees, how to grow Shiitake mushrooms, how to work with chainsaw and powertools, general woodworking skills. Nina likes to teach Portuguese I am a basic carpenter/builder. Nina's mother is an artist and agronomist.

    Also learn to do nothing and enjoy yourself doing nothing !

    About 15 km from us there is a town called Santa Teresa, it's a student town where there are lots of things to see and do. there is a museum of biology, a university, beautiful waterfalls and lots of nice little bars and restaurants. You can also go hiking in the natural reserve. If you like climbing here is a paradise, boulders and rocks everywhere. There are lots of waterfalls around. You can also surf, the beach is about 40km's from the town we go there a few times each month. We like to live our life in a way we don't need a holiday ! The public transport in Santa Teresa is excellent. From Vitoria it is extremely easy to take a plane to Bahia, Rio, Sao Paulo or anywhere you want to visit in Brazil !
