    Hello!
    My name is Pedro, and you are being invited to spend time inside the site which i glady have been choose to take care until my final rest hahaha.
    This place is basically where we meet to celebrate life, exchange knowledge, have contact with nature and where we also dream together. Friends, companions and travelers are invited to co-create in this garden of love, peace, connection, knowledge and development.
    You will be very welcome to here!
    Feel free to leave your essence in this place!

    The site is not very large, having around 5 hectares, the functions demanded are basic, such as cleaning and maintenance of the house and the surroundings, as well as the 2 dogs and 3 little wild cats that we have: D
    In the free time feel free to make handcrafts, meditate, read, study, relax, connect with the place, with the animals, with the trees, just beware the mosquitos! hahaha...
    From time to time we have events, can be a party or a weekend of meditation, medicine of the forest and connection.
    The more time is spent here, the more it is possible to understand about this space, about the people who inhabit it, and about ourselves, there are nights which we spend hours talking under the stars (here it is VERY starry at night), making food around some bonfire, or even visiting some place here in the city or nearby.

    There are several interesting places to visit near Frederico, such as the faguense waterfalls, or the amethyst fields and mines of the nearby city of Ametista do Sul, around 30km north of Frederico there is another city called Irai where you can find indigenous villages (Kaingang Tribe), medicinal mud and one of the best mineral waters in the world!

    All these factors make this region very diversified, rich, and worth knowing ...
    On top of all this, there is the greater purpose behind the reason we are receiving you on the workaway!

    The "Chacra", this is the name of the site here, and in this place we shall build spaces for events, pleasant gardens to be, an agroforest for food, gardens and indoor planting systems, we also want to build a geodesic to host experiences and workshops.
    All this aiming at the elaboration of a sustainable and exemplary environment, that can be frequented by the public, and used by schools and small producers of the region as a place of learning, demonstrating how it is possible to live in different ways and also enabling a multi cultural interaction even with the passage of travelers here.
    Little is yet accomplished, but gradually everything becomes more tangible and real.
    At last I can say that what we are looking for are people willing to venture and immerse themselves in a unique experience that can be part of your life forever, and where you can be proud of being part of the future! : D

    *We study medicines like rapé and ayahuasca here, also ganjah and cubensis are often around*

    Olá!
    Me chamo Pedro, e você esta sendo convidado para passar um tempo dentro do sitio o qual tive o privilegio e honra de ser escolhido como guardião.
    Esse espaço é basicamente um local onde nos reunimos para celebrar a vida, trocar conhecimentos, ter contato com a natureza e onde também sonho em conjunto de amigos, companheiros e viajantes a criação de um jardim de amor, paz, conexão, conhecimento e desenvolvimento.
    Você será muito bem vindo para ajudar aqui!
    Sinta-se livre para deixar sua essência presente neste lugar!

    O sitio não é muito grande, tendo em torno de 5 hectares, as funções demandadas são básicas, como limpeza e manutenção da casa e dos arredores, assim como dos 2 cachorros e 2 gatos que temos :D
    No tempo livre sinta-se livre para fazer artesanato, meditar, ler, estudar, relaxar, se conectar com o local, com os bichos, com as arvores...
    De tempos em tempos temos eventos, podem ser uma festa ou um final de semana de meditação, medicina da floresta e conexão.
    Quanto mais tempo se passa aqui mais se é possível entender sobre este espaço, sobre as pessoas que nele habitam, e sobre nós mesmos, em dias podemos permanecer horas conversando sob as estrelas (aqui é MUITO estrelado a noite), fazendo comida em volta de alguma fogueira, ou ainda visitando algum local aqui na cidade ou próximo.

    Existem vários locais interessantes de se conhecer próximos a frederico, como as cachoeiras da faguense, ou os campos e minas de ametista da cidade vizinha de ametista do sul, em torno de 30km ao norte de Frederico existe outra cidade chamada Irai, onde é possível encontrar aldeias indígenas (Tribo Kaingang), barro medicinal e uma das melhores águas minerais do mundo!

    Todos estes fatores tornam essa região muito diversificada, rica, e digna de se conhecer...
    Além de tudo isso, existe o proposito maior por trás do motivo de estarmos recebendo vocês pelo workaway!

    A "Chacra", este é o nome do sitio aqui, e neste local planejo construir espaços para termos mais vivencias, jardins agradáveis de se estar, uma agrofloresta para se tirar alimento, hortas e sistemas de plantio indoor, queremos também construir uma geodésica para sedear vivencias e workshops.
    Tudo isso visando a elaboração de um ambiente sustentável e exemplar, que possa ser frequentado pelo publico, e utilizado por escolas e pequenos produtores da região como um local de aprendizado, demonstrando como é possível viver de formas diferentes e também possibilitando uma interação multi cultural por meio da passagem de viajantes por aqui.
    Aos poucos tudo vai se tornando mais tangível e real.
    Por fim posso dizer que o que buscamos são pessoas dispostas a se aventurar e mergulhar dentro de uma vivencia singular que poderá fazer parte da sua vida para sempre, e de onde você poderá se orgulhar no futuro de ter feito parte! :D
