The forrests of Brasil suffered enormous exploitation over the last centuries. With all the negative news about industrialized agriculture and soil degradation its euasily forgotten that Brasil was and could be the land of amazing fertility and plant variaty.
We try to reverse the process. Out of burnt soil we are going to create a flourishing plantation, an agroforrest, of all kind of tropical plants in mixed cultivation. The reimplatation of valuable hard wood will be the top of the revival of a healthy complete ecosystem.
We consider the forrest as a partner and not as an area that needs to be abandoned. A nature-human relationship asks both sides to give and take. Its a win-win situation which results for us in not only healthy food and working material but also in vitality and a finding back to our deepest roots.
Our project lies in a very attractive region in the atlantic rainforrest, close to the historical little town of Paraty. Our land of 13 hectars owns its own watersources and has no electricity. We built our own house for a start, out of just local natural material. Art is important for us as the wellbeing depends on what our senses perceive. Organic forms and colours warm our heart and invite nature and its spirits to join us.

It is very important to notice that our project lies in the tropical forest and there are all kind of animals, also poisenes ones, and radical weather conditions. Nature is vibrating at a high rate and turns our existence within it into a kind of survival camp. You need to bring a torch as well as rain, sun and evtl moskito protection. The work in the plantation consists of mainly hard or exact labour, so does it on the construction site. There are other things to do as cooking or gardening or art that are easier going but are still much more challenging up here then elsewhere . At least you should be a team player and have a productive skill and an adventerous attitude. You will never forget your stay here...
