  • Description

    Description

    The property is located in the region of the "Chapada dos Veadeiros" in the state of Goias in Brazil..

    I bought this property two years ago that had no infrastructure. We have been working on it for 1 year with René whom I employed and myself to create organic gardens and we are going to start bioclimatic constructions this year. I am trained as a French cook, a nutritherapeute, a farmer, and have been involved in many construction projects. I wanted to create a self-sufficient place where I could put my knowledge to work and share it. The project in not for profit at the moment.

    The property has a total surface of 90 hectares, it is bordered by a river with waterfalls and by a stream that descends from the mountain on which we created a gravity irrigation to water the plantations. I drilled for pure drinking water and the energy from the site is solar. We have set up two bus bodies on site to accommodate in the near future. For the moment, I rent a house a few kilometers from the site in which I live and where I can accommodate people.

    I am French and can therefore learn French to interested people. I speak Portuguese fluently and can also help foreign people improve the local language. I speak English which sometimes makes things a lot easier and have enough Spanish to understand and make me understand.
