    Description

    O Sítio Carpir é um lugar de encontro agrícola, cultural e recreativo. Situado em Paraibuna, entre o litoral norte e a cidade de São Paulo, o Carpir foi fundado por mim (Vasco) em 2016. Sou geográfo de 32 anos, e decidi sair de São Paulo pra ter uma vida mais conectada à natureza, sem deixar de lado o convívio social e o contato com o que se passa no mundo. Já viajei por mais de 20 países, me comunico bem em inglês e espanhol e sou ovo-lacto-vegetariano. A alimentação saudável vem sendo meu tema de estudo nos últimos anos.

    O sitio hoje conta com uma agrofloresta de cerca de 2ha, plantio de hortaliças orgânicas, galinhas caipiras, dois cachorros um gato, todos muito simpáticos. Há uma mata com trilha dentro do sítio e uma linda represa a 30 minutos de caminhada. Além da minha casa, que conta com quarto de hóspedes e cozinha compartilhada, também há outras duas casas: um chalé que alugo no airbnb e o ateliê da renomada artista Marina Rheinzgantz; e outros amigos começam a construir ainda nesse ano. Todo esse movimento fortalece o espirito coletivo que caracteriza o sitio. Cozinhar junto, praticar yoga, plantar, pintar, construir, receber visitantes, ouvir suas histórias e se divertir..

    Carpir Farm is an agricultural, cultural and recreational meeting place. Located in Paraíbuna, between the North Coast of the State and the city of São Paulo, Carpir was founded by me (Vasco) in 2016. I’m a Geographer, 32 years old, and I decided to leave São Paulo to live closer to Nature, without giving up social networking and contact with what is going on in the world. I have travelled for more than 20 countries, I communicate well in English and Spanish, and I am vegetarian. Healthy food habits has been my topic of study in the last years.

    The farm has a 2-hectares agroforest, growing of organic vegetables, free range eggs, two dogs and one cat, all of which are very friendly. The property also has a forest with a trail. There is a beautiful dam lake within a 30 minute-walk. In addition to my house, which has a guest bedroom and a shared-kitchen, the farm also has two other houses: a chalet that I rent on AirBnb and the atelier of the renowed artist ; and other friends are building their houses in the next months. This gathering of people strengthens the collective spirit that caracterizes the farm. Cooking together, practicing yoga, planting, painting, building, receiving visitors and listening to their stories and having fun.
