Hello there! I am Florent from Belgium, living mostly in Brazil for 6 years now. I did a PhD in the area of sustainable aquaculture and I am currently starting the construction of a spirulina farm (micro-algea >> superfood) and a house. This house will be built with the superadobe technic, which consist basically in filling bags of earth, used as walls. The land is on the top of a hill with a beautiful view of grassland and forest as far as our eyes can see. I am located in São Luiz do Paraitinga, 2 hours from São Paulo and 1 hour from Ubatuba, where you can find wonderful tropical beaches. The land is 35 minutes on foot and 10 minutes by car from the centre of São Luiz do Paraitinga. It is a small touristic city with colonial style well preserved, various cultural events and provided with supermarkets, retail stores, hospital and some bars and restaurants. I would be very glad to welcome you to work to this project and to share good time together.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
I will be working in the construction of the house with a Brazilian who has experience in bio-construction. Therefore, you will be able to learn about this field with hands-on.

I will need help in the construction of the house in superadobe, micro-algae farm and probably in planting some fruit trees. Cooking sometimes, if you want.
