  • Description


    We accept voluntiers in the first week of month for at least 2 weeks.
    Many people dont like ants and fight agaist them all the time, we feel we should live harmonicaly with nature (including the ants), the way we found for that is living in comunity and we are building ours.

    We are easygoing people and we decided to do this workaway profile becouse we are interested in meet new people from anywhere in the world becouse doing that, we are sure we will improve ourselfes.
    The Farm is a family proprty, at the moment Gustavo(36) and Guilherme(36) brothers and Carolina(31), friend live here now. for 2019 another friend will come live with us.

    Our plan is hosting 2-3 volunteers

    Talking about the farm now....
    We have a 3 hectars farm where we work with permaculture. We are here since May 2016, working on agriculture, planting everything, using agroforest thecniques(syntropic agriculture), in the beggining the farm had only the fence, so we need to start from zero, doing since the the water system/eletricity etc....

    In march 2018 we started our houses(superadobe/erth Bags), we finished them. Thanks to many volunteers we had here helping us.
    Now, We need to finish the gardering around the houses.. kitchen.. and begun news things...

    We want to live in our ecovilage and we are taking the first steps for that now!!
    all help is welcome.

    if u want to share your time, knowledge with us, we can provide you a place where u can have a good time, enjoying nature and learnning everything we do at the farm.
