  • Description

    Description

    Located in Chapada dos Veadeiros, in Cavalcante city, we have a small house with growing organic agroforest around it. It’s isolated and simple, so we see our farm as a place for those who seek tranquility and sustainable life. We have a routine of work managing the agroforest, taking care of the garden, weeding, planting, collecting, preparing seedlings, and bioconstructing. To rest we practice meditation, yoga, acrobatic silk, play the guitar and go to the amazing river just 100 meters from the house. We also have a small waterfall 30 minutes walking. And araras around all the time! As we are located in an extremely explored part of Cerrado, our main goal is to recover with forest and food this devastated land that needs love and a lot of hard work.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The intention of being open to volunteers is to exchange knowledge on permaculture, organic farming, veganism, meaningful life experiences and ways of living a more sustainable and happy life.

    Help

    We prefer volunteers with previous experience on agriculture and agroforestry, or that are traveling with this specific focus. Volunteers are asked for help with daily tasks, such as planting, gardening, cooking.
    Because of the need to become familiar with the work and the distance from the city, we ask volunteers to stay at least two weeks. We would welcome those wishing to stay longer.

    What else ...

    Since we are very isolated and focused in our project, we are not the best option for those who are travelling around Brazil and Chapada dos Veadeiros looking foward to meet different places, cultures and people.
