We are a family of 3 (humans): Marina, Fernando and our son Ierê (2y6m) + 3 dogs, 4 cats and chicken!
We live in a country house in the city of Sao Miguel Arcanjo (south of Sao Paulo), about 3km from the Carlos Botelho State Park.

Travellers will get to experience a family life in the country; living in harmony with nature, taking care of plants and animals, growing food. All simple and with love!
If you're interested, we can share recipes, we love to cook! We sometimes make sourdough bread (Pain au Levain/Massa Madre) for selling to some friends.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
UPDATE!!: we're planning a trip to visit our family in another state for at least 1 month and need someone to make presence here in the farm and to take care of 1 dog and 2 cats, 2 chicken and basic care of the garden!! If you have interest, contact us for further information and we can arrange something nice!!!
We don't have a regular routine here, so we will see day by day what will we work on!
We need help basically with the vegetable garden: routine tasks to keep it healthy (preparing mulche; cleaning weeds out of the beds; making seedlings and transplanting; opening new areas and beds to plant...).
And with fruit trees, we will need general help with taking care of them, especially with the banana trees (pruning, mulching...)
No experience required, you can learn as we work! But sometimes we won't be able to be working together.
But if you do have experience with organic/byodinamic/agroforestry/ permaculture we are happy to share knowledges!
Also some cleaning and maintenance help in the house, basic. And there might be some help with construction in little projects.

Our house has 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms. Workawayers will get a private room in the house and a private bathroom (if we rent the other room, the bathroom will be shared). We have another house in the property, that for now is empty, there's no kitchen equipments, but it's good for sleeping, if you'd like. There's also plenty space for camping, in case the house is full or if you prefer!
We will offer the 3 basic meals, we can cook together! Feel free to use the kitchen! We appreciate if you can contribute with sharing the expenses at the market with us (if you don't, it's no problem, just let us know in advance). We cook healthy, simple, vegetarian and happy food in our wood stove (mostly)! :)
In your time off, you can visit the State Park (there are several trails there, with waterfalls and animal watching), there's also a trail in the propertie to the Taquaral River, or you can just relax in the house, see the sunset from the living room!
We only have Internet access here in the cellphone, which the only company that picks up is 'Vivo'. There's also a gas station with WiFi nearby.
