  • Descripción


    Hello! Thank you for reading our profile.

    We are two friends, Ricardo and Guinter, who decided to start growing mushrooms in the south of Brazil. We live in a lovely city called Bento Gonçalves, the capital of wine in Brazil.

    We began our project in January, and have a lot of work to do. Our business is growing fast, and we are currently delivering mushrooms to restaurants and various clients in our region.

    Volunteers are welcome to support wherever help is needed and will learn the mushroom growing and selling process from top to bottom.

    Volunteers will have a private room and enjoy access to a full kitchen and a fresh fruit and vegetable garden. We live in the countryside, ten minutes from the city center, and nearby hiking trails and many wineries.

    We love meeting people from around the world! Ricardo traveled for the past six years, many times through Workaway, and is excited to bring the experience back to his hometown.
