I am Marcio — we live in Brazil in a villa sort of space which is myself and my parents. I am 40 years old and I coordinate our family nano brewery (we brew about 100 liters of beer per month) and it's not yet commercial. What we do with this real brewery? I provide courses on basic brewing.
As we live at this villa, my parents (about 70 each) have demands for other real hands to a few but important things. It's a 50x100 meters land that is half resort/villa and half a farm — we have opportunities to grow organics but we may simply focus in gardening, the brewery and language exchange. We might strongly consider to hear your thoughts as we appreciate good people with high level of ethical behavior, professionalism, intelligence and more.
Our "elderly care" status, or needs, are not much necessary as they very much operate everything in the land. With that said, we will for sure define the help areas which you can contribute. We do not have critical heavy work, such as construction. It's mostly garden and support to keep things really clean — or a good mood to clean your own mess. A good communication is welcome so we can talk about things before and we can define the language practice activities. We will also negotiate and do our best to attend to your local needs.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
* We are strongly considering an eco project — a small production of organics.
* We are involved in online/offline education — so will will appreciate your help with that.
* We are strongly interested in whoever can do things to evolve; in other words, do not make the place worse and keep cleaning after you.
* We are in need of gardening care.
* We are in need of some construction/renovation but will not involve much hard work — probably painting, cleaning, moving things, arranging
You will have a small individual room which is separated from the main house. It has air conditioning and internet for you. The main house we have us (3) but sometimes we will have family and/or course guests.
This is the area of Ribeirão Preto which is 100Km from São Carlos and 150km from south of Minas Gerais state. It's warm and the city has about 600-700 thousand people. You will have about 3-4 local breweries and it's a standard city of the State of São Paulo. Our location is about 5Km from the city so you will get there from bus or a bike, which we can borrow, or you can get a ride from Marcio – we just have to negotiate our agendas. We are interested in exchange cultural, intellectual — with some real collaboration/hands/mind work.
