  • Description


    My wife and I live in a small town in the interior of the state of São Paulo. We live near the Carlos Botelho State Park, one of the most conserved areas of the Atlantic Forest in the world. In our forest farm, we have a project of ecological restoration, agriforestry, honey production and others. The local area is suitable for outdoor activities like walking, kayaking and cycling.

    Ecological restoration: planting native Atlantic Forest seedlings in degraded areas and riparian forests. The goal is to rebuild the ecological structure of the original forest, to bring back clean water and native animals and plants.

    Agroforestry: planting of different native and exotic edible species (vegetables, herbs and fruit). The objective is to form a productive forest with a high concentration of fruit species.

    Single track: implementation of a single track within the forest. The goal is to open trails for bike rides.

    (There is no need of knowledge about ecology, agroecology or permaculture. Enthusiasm and initiatives are welcome)
