    Description

    My name os Fabio, i'm a permacuture intusiastic from Rio de janeiro, that moved in to the montains to start a project with compost and worms, in a sustainable and nature friendly way. We are working hard in a land with 150 hectares. We are starting a pleasant organic farm. Food garden, fruit orchard, we make products such as bio fertilizer and compost mix in order to finance our project.

    We want people who stay here to feel comfortable and at home in a beatiful camping. All the resources are shared. Our "kitchen" is vegetarian, but with taste. Our focus is to live in harmony with the land and the community around us. We work 5 hours a day, morning or afternoon. We try to live in a sustainable way and are open to learning new ways to work and develop our project.

    Help

    We are aiming to start to build a house with bio-construction in 2018.
    We need help in these activities and it would be great if people who have previous experience and knowledge with this kind of method would come to share experiences with us.
    We let our desire choose the labor of the day. The work is not always on our land, it could be at home, on a friends property, collecting organic matter, or even visiting a waterfall.

    We work hard here! And we work together.
    We prefer that you do activities that you are good at, and do for pleasure.
    Feel free to ask and start a conversation. ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Visconde de Mauá is a place with lots of waterfalls and natural beauty attractions
    We Love to show our litle Town to our guest and also introduce to our friends.
    i can take you to some cool projects such mushroom production and açaí factory. Açai is health fruit of a palm tree.

    during your day off and your time off, You can take a bike and reach the village in 35 minutes. We have 3 bikes you can use, But I have go to the city 3 times a week at least. usually the workaways always prefer wait for the ride and works great, but It is a great opportunity to ride a bicycle in a safe place in a dirt road surrounded buy the nature.
    If you want to stay closer to the land We have a waterfall about 2km from my land who got a river 10 minutes in a trail.
    Close to the our project you can explore a park with 9 waterfalls. you can try some local food there too!

    The tourism here is busy on the weekend, and quiet during the week. So the best time to enjoy is during the week days. but we always have a local spot to avoid crowd.
    There are horse or adventure rides, the restaurants with live music are usually expensive. But we know the area well and can guide you to places you might want to visit.

    We have 4 buses crossing the main Road, but is very easy to get rides. People are friendly in general.
