  • Description


    Hi, I'm Ale and with my fiancee Tissy, we are building together an permacultural and agroforestry farm here in the southeast of Brazil. In this beginning we're currently working on constructions and focusing less on the farming itself. If you have any skills related with bioconstruction, let us know. Our idea is to build a room to house our volunteers, so they get more privacy and comfort.

    I'm a meditation teacher, and Tissy is a psychologist. We are learning a lot and sharing whatever we learn in this process.
    We are currently 2h away from São Paulo center, and 1h30 away from Guarulhos airport. It's easy to get a bus to come to Monteiro Lobato, stopping in São José dos Campos.

    Join us and help us create this paradise here!

    For sure they'll learn about vegan cooking from Brazil and we'll plant, build, and design a lot of different new ideas here.

  • Help


    Right now one of our projects is on creating an agroforest, by working the land, but mainly working on structures for the place, building a place for volunteers, a composting toilet, wood stove, pizza oven, some marcenary addings like farmhouse tables, beds etc... You'll be helping us in those activities.
