  • Descripción


    Hi, we are a queer family, Thiago, Baco and our children Arumã (6y) and Sebastiana (3y).

    We work with the creation of gardens and backyards, production and processing of food and also natural medicinal products.
    Caring for children has also been a major focus of our family, promoting direct contact with nature, the sea, rivers and invented toys.
    We are building our dream place in the middle of the forest.
    In this moment we are building our bioconstructed home mainly with wood and clay, where we pick water directly from the source and use only biodegradable products. In the bathroom we use a dry toilet and all our organic waste is composted.
    Around the house, we are creating, in the middle of the forest, an edible agroforestry garden with several species.

  • Ayuda


    Right now we need people who are especially interessed in taking care of the children. Teaching new skills, playing, taking care of basic needs, having rides, and giving full atention for some hours.
    Also, we need help with the maintenance of the house, which involves keeping the house clean and organized, washing dishes, keeping the bathroom clean (removing the bucket from the dry bathroom daily), taking care of the compost and help with cooking.
    If you have experience with bioconstruction and planting, your skills are also welcom, like breaking earth, treading clay, planting, hummus production, harvesting and processing food.

    We are surrounded by a beautiful and majestic forest that requires attention, there are all kinds of animals, come prepared to contemplate but also to respect all their beings. The safety of each one is done in self-responsibility, equipment such as long boots (wellies) is necessary in our region, and long clothes and socks to protect against mosquitoes.

    Unfortunately, in this moment we can't provide food (and one of the goals with volunterring is to increase food production to provide food in the future). So we share these costs with the volunteer. For that, the volunteer could give the money and we go to the fair and market or the volunteer can bring their own food (mainly local, organic, the mininum of processed food and strictly vegan)

  • Alojamiento


    We have two accommodation options: a sofa in the living room (which is not yet fully enclosed, only half a wall) or camping in a tent in the backyard. Anyway, the kitchen and bathroom are shared with the family.

    The house is in direct contact with nature, with many plants around which attracts insects and many birds, come with an open mind to interact with nature, both with butterflies and mosquitoes!

    Algo más...

    Being here is being in contact with the exuberance of nature. Free time is time to explore and be amazed by the beauty of this place. Sertão de Ubatumirim has several rivers and waterfalls and a breathtaking forest. We are close to the highway that takes us to several idyllic beaches. Municipal bus is the best form of transport and stops a few meters from the house, but we also usually give and receive rides.
