  • Description


    I am an artist (painter), art therapist and Alexander's Technique teacher. After finishing my doctorate degree in Fine Arts I fell in love with the Permaculture and Agroecology principles and took 3 years off to live in a farm and learn/ practice these principles.
    Now that I have my own land I need help to work the land and to finish the house.

    The idea is to have a place that intertwines land working and art working in the future.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located at Serra da Mantiqueira, a beautiful mountan range on the border between São Paulo and Minas Gerais.

    We practice the Permaculture principles and the Sintropic Agriculture farming principles as well.
    The travellers will have a chance to learn about thse principles.

    Also, the main house is my art studio ( I have been a painter for 30 years and hold a PhD in fine arts) and I am willing to show and talk about art with my guests.

  • Help


    The main house at Sítio Pedregulho is at its latest stages of construction.
    I am already living here, but we need help to many details and finishings.
    As I am trying to learn to play the piano, some instruction on this is highly valued as well! :)

    We also need help on the vegetable garden and food forest on the next months, before and during the rain season (November to January is the rain season here in the southwest of Brazil).

  • Accommodation


    Private room / shared room/ camping at the main house, where I live.
    The type of accomodation will depend on how many guests I have at the moment, but it will be discussed in advance with the workawayer.

    I will provide vegetarian food and the meals will be prepared together.
    If there is any special dietary need we can discuss it in advance
