  • Descripción


    This is a rural development project, aiming to create self-sufficiency for the project and community surrounding the project thru combination of ecological farming, education and cottage industry.

    We are part of a non profit spiritual and social service organization, and follow the principles of Neohumanism (which in short is love for all humans, other living beings and animate and inanimate) and PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory). We practice yoga, meditation, follow a sentient (healthy) lifestyle. Our ecological farming is based on a mixture of permaculture, biodynamics and other alternative means to achieve self-sufficiency. Regularly we have some bio-construction going on as well, developing our place to be a spiritually based community, with social service projects for the locals in the future.

    The project is run by a yogic nun, Didi , who has dedicated her life to self-realization and service to humanity. She teaches yoga and meditation, works as a missionary, and is a lifelong learner.

    Ivo is our longest staying volunteer and is dedicated developing our farm to self-sufficient place where people of all ages can come and learn about alternative agriculture and sustainability.

    Usually there are some volunteers around, and a few local workers as well. Also we have 3 dogs, 3 cats, and some native animals around.

    We have been developing our project for the last 8 years and the main activities right now are related to building up the place for all its (future) activities, through bioconstruction, food forests, organic farming, as well as starting some community service projects. The activities are diverse and any expertise in different fields is welcome. The volunteers work according to the recommended 5 hours, but working hours may vary according to the work going on, for exact information better to contact us. We generally work monday thru saturday and have sundays off. Preferred minimum stay is 2 weeks, but there is no limit for longer stay if we can get along well. If you want to stay less than 2 weeks we ask for a small contribution towards food and gasoline for pick-up from the city.

  • Alojamiento


    We have 2 small houses each with a room and bathroom for volunteers. The women stay in one house and the men in the other. For couples we can make other arrangements if the men room is available. Also it is possible to camp, for those who like to be more in nature, but bring your own tent and camping gear.
    Accommodation is simple and it is recommended to bring your own sleeping bag.

    Algo más...

    We live about 43km from the capitol city Brasilia. There are many things to see and do here. Other we live next to the national park of Brasilia, so there is a lot of native (Cerrado) flora and fauna, as well as waterfalls and canyons. So there is opportunity to go hiking and taking a swim at the plenty of waterfalls nearby.

    Workawayers, when open to learn, can learn a great deal about spiritual and healthy lifestyle, organic alternative farming, bioconstruction etc.

    Workawayers are expected to respect our norms and values, and are encouraged to participate in our collective yoga and meditation practices.

    We have a strictly vegetarian diet, without onion, garlic, mushrooms, eggs. Practically speaking we are vegan but do take some happy cow dairy products. We provide 3 meals a day and generally we cook and eat together when possible.

    Smoking, drugs or alcohol are NOT allowed at anytime.
