    Hello everyone!

    After traveling around the world and being inspired by some many wonderful people, cool projects and beautiful places on earth I came back home with this big dream of building a place where one can live close to nature and be in touch with people from every part of the world.

    The aspiration is that in this piece of land we can live in a balanced and creative way aiming to plant as much as we can combining and promoting the great principles and knowledge of Permaculture, the philosophical and practical guidance of Yoga and Buddhism and getting involve with the community around us trying to help this part of south of Brazil to grow in a sustainable way adopting the concepts of "Cidades mais humanas" (Cities for humans not for machines).

    I see this project not only as a way to be economically sustainable (because no matter how we wish money didn’t exist it still does) but also as a way of promoting an ecological way to host and to travel, sharing the little that we've learned so far. We hope it to be a place where more people will be able to get in touch with nature and with themselves, developing alternative ways of living starting to care more about mother nature and about being happy and healthy rather than adjusting to the system without realising that together we can change it to better.

    The house is made of wood and there is one private room, one 8 bed dorm and you can also camp on the yard. We have a beautiful lagoon overview, we are 4.5Km from gorgeous beaches and you can also swim in the lagoon :)


    Things to do?
    We need help with all kinds of things.

    We have an architectural project to make.
    We need help with electrical, painting, plumbery and carpentry tasks!
    There is a lot to do in the yard and in the vegetable garden.
    I'd like to find someone who could help us with the web site, with promoting us in social media. We also would like to create a new logo for us.
    We green built a dry toilet and now we want to make the final lawyer of mud and paintings.
    There is A LOT to do :D !

    -------> Every volunteer should help CLEANING the house so just apply if you know how to do this thing OR if you are happy to learn how to do it (toilets, sink, floors, stove, etc) No frills.

    Everybody helps with everything but you'll be doing only what you feel comfortable doing.

    You'll find here a nice comfy bed, with clean sheets, blankets, a clean dry towel an a lagoon view.
    When the dorm is fully booked we have a tent with a mattress and clean sheets to offer.
    We hope that energetic, open heart and minded people come to add energy, peace and love to everyone's lives :D

    Please, don't apply if you are just looking for a place to stay or hang out. In this case you are super welcome to come as a guest :)
    Volunteers get involved :D ! ! !
