First of all THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST but mind that you must come to our home with an open mind and specially with a big and wide open heart!
This IS a volunteering project we all make part of and we will treat you as family. We are here in this world to help each other. You help me and I help you. I help you and you help me. Then we become friends, family, humans!
Sadly we prefer the volunteer to stay for ONE WEEK only, maybe two if we get along nicely during the first one. WE also HAVE SOME RULES THAT THE VOLUNTEER NEEDS TO FOLLOW otherwise can be asked to LEAVE the house... One of the most important rules is that DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ARE FORBIDDEN during the volunteering. We are also do not like to be asking others, all the time, to help us so the volunteer needs to be PROACTIVE and show his or her are really interest on helping... We will try always to be honest and objective in communicating and assigning tasks but of course we will be always open to new ideas and REAL actions.
We are a young family looking for a friendly hand on daily tasks as watching a house, playing with the kids and helping them on their school work, cleaning and gardening.
We work with lots of love in our own home artisan bakery and sell our products in two street marekets (fairs). So, some help on that can be also required if the volunteer shows up to it.
We make whole breads of natural fermentation, functional cakes, artisan pizzas, healthy snacks, mostly vegan or vegetarian.
P S.: We are not vegetarian but we are trying to change habits and eat healthier.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you here!
About us: My name is Ester, I'm 40 years old and I'm gaucha native of Porto Alegre. Together with my husband Maicon, 34, also from the southern part of Brasil - but more for a surfer than for a "gaudério" - we formed a beautiful family with two enlightened children (Kauê, a 6 years old boy, and Mariá, a baby girl with 3).
We also have in this family the illustrious presence of three happy dogs and two lazy cats.
We love to work, travel, play, surf, chill at the beach, eat well and enjoy the nature.
If you do not speak Portuguese, I will notice you that I am the only one who speaks English and Spanish fluently in the house but my husband and older son do understand Spanish and they even do good on that.
Not long ago we were traveling and volunteering in South America for almost two years and now with the coming of the second baby we are living here and working with what we love - food and people - for a period, until we have the opportunity to hopefully enjoy a new adventure.
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Although my husband smokes out of the house, and we drink socially, I have preference for non-smoking volunteers.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Before leaving the house, on his or her last day, the volunteer will clean up the area where slept during the week(s) and take care to leave the toilet that he or she used as clean as it was on the day of the arrival, so we can offer a decent place for the next virtuous traveller. If you are not OK with that rule please don't loose time contacting us because we might mention this on your reference after all. We would like to receive the area back as clean as you have received, or even better if posible. P.S.: This is Permaculture ;o)
Remember when you apply to a volunteering project, as the name already says, WORK-AWAY you have to be UP to help others that are openning their home (and hearts in our case) for you!

We are located in Praia de Itapeva, Torres - Rio Grande do Sul. A wonderful place for lovers of the sea, nature and extreme sports. We are very close to a beach known for its natural beauty, and many other beaches, parks and lakes.
In addition you can enjoy or better know a type of healthy and slow fermentation bakery. Inclusive you can learn how to make our breads and cakes on your free time during evenings and take it to your life!!

We need help during the day in many areas but basically it is cleaning in general, cooking, playing with the kids, caring for them, gardening and helping us on our bakery. We usually star working in the morning.
We need someone responsible, respectful and PROACTIVE to help keeping the house clean and tidy. You have to like children and animals.
If you choose to volunteer with us, you should keep in mind that the little ones require a lot of love, playfulness and patience, as well as someone who knows how to set limits and have a careful eye!
We will always want you to have a pleasant, relaxed and peaceful work and stay. So if anything bothers you WE need to know (tell us!) so that way we can solve any question.

We would love if the volunteer tried to teach some foreign language to our kids.
A place to set a tent in the garage, or a mattress inside our house, or hopefully, a private bedroom and bathroom (maybe shared with some other volunteer in case we accept more than one at the same time but usually that does not happen). Our home is big, clean, sunny, airy, high-spirited, but we don't have private rooms for the family on our tird floor, only one for receiving the volunteers (on the first floor), so we also ask the volunteers to use only the commun area that is the living room (second floor) unless he or she is invited to go further upstairs. Food is not included if you work only three hours and if you work the maximum of five hours we will provide you lunch or some food support. This is a question that must be cleared before any misunderstanding so we like to chat about that (using video calls) before the volunteer arrives.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The volunteer will "check in" showing his or her passport or ID for the security of all at home and will receive clean bed sheets to use and a neat and hygienic toilette to share. And the volunteer will "check out" leaving his or her sleeping area and bathroom really clean and ready to receive the next visitor.
You can walk or get an Uber to different beaches, dunes, or to a big lagoon, or even go by bus to the center of Torres, and from there take any other bus to several beaches, lakes, ponds or green valleys around. We are also nearby to a big lagoon to fish, have a picnic or take a refreshing swim.
Oh! We have an old Wolksvagen Kombi so family trips can happen if we have a free time and everybody feels up to!
Come and enjoy your staying with us!
We will be very happy to make a new friend, brother or sister!

Our internet or WiFi signal sometimes doesn't run very well. But it usually does good.
Feel free to come with your van or motorhome. We have a large yard!
We love pets but we cannot be responsible if our dogs decide to catch yours! Hehehe
