  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple, Nathan and Larissa. We currently live in the Capão Valley, Chapada Diamantina, Bahia Brazil. The capão valley is a really charming place, with many waterfalls and wonderful landscapes, as well as concentrating alternative people from different countries. We have a piece of land, where I built our house myself and also a cottage where we rent for the season.
    We also work with bio-cosmetics, we dedicate ourselves to plant garden and Agroforestry systems, constructions (works) using some sustainable techniques and housework.
    In addition to this land, we also have a project underway in southern Bahia, on the coast, in Ilhéus. We have a land with excellent conditions for agriculture, close to the sea, where we intend to build a place for agroforestry production, experiences in biocontruction and country life. We intend that these projects can feed good ideas and be fed by people with good ideas.

    Somos um casal, Nathan e Larissa. Vivemos atualmente no vale do capão, chapada Diamantina, Bahia Brasil. O vale do capão é um lugar realmente encantador, com muitas cachoeiras e paisagens maravilhosas, além de concentrar pessoas alternativas de vários países. Nós temos um terreno, onde eu mesmo construí nossa casa e também um chalé onde alugamos por temporada.
    Também trabalhamos com bio-cosméticos, nos dedicamos a plantar horta e sistemas Agroflorestais, construções (obras) utilizando algumas técnicas sustentáveis e trabalhos domésticos.
    Além desta terra, temos também um projeto em andamento no sul da Bahia, no litoral, em Ilhéus. Temos uma terra com ótimas condições para agricultura, perto do mar, onde pretendemos construir um local de produção agroflorestal, vivências em biocontrução e vida no campo. Temos a intenção de que estes projetos possam alimentar boas idéias e serem alimentados por pessoas de boas idéias.
