  • Description


    We are an institute for environmental preservation that works with environmental education, reforestation, fauna and flora recovery and research and development in the environmental area, aimed at communities, farmers, technicians and researchers, which promotes environmental sustainability in an era of great aggression to the environment.
    We are located in the municipality of Marechal Floriano. In this region we still find many remnants of Atlantic Forest and some beautiful waterfalls and trails.
    We are in ten adults and three children currently. We split up to perform the tasks on the site and currently we have no contract here. But we received a lot of help from many local people.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We understand that the labor and financial system established in our society is unbalanced, self-centered and unfair. We believe that work based on exchanges re-signifies all experiences, is abundant, more productive and better enjoyed by all those involved in this process. In addition, we trust that each person can offer something aggregating in their own way, based on their life experience and not just on academic degrees and other prerequisites for the 'job market'. There is nothing more precious than the exchange of knowledge and knowledge among those who live in community!

  • Help


    We are a developing institute. Volunteers who come to help us will work with agroforestry, bioconstruction, environmental maintenance and help with general demands.
    We need help with maintenance and planting of agroforestry in general. Including all stages, as we are always planting new beds and harvesting from older ones. We are structuring the Institute, so we have also done several works and we have several of them in different stages of completion.

  • Accommodation


    Volunteers will be in dormitories or campground (whichever they prefer). We have a large dormitory with more than 20 beds to receive students for courses, but we want to receive a maximum of 4 volunteers at a time.
    We are vegans and we try to focus our food mainly on what we produce. We take turns cooking, so no one gets overwhelmed. Don't worry, the food is very good and we ask people to help just as they feel most comfortable.
