We are located in the mid of the Atlantic Rainforest about 120km away from Rio de Janeiro city.
Our project started 6 years ago but we are still reforming the old buildings, the vegetable garden and orchard are still developing.
In 2017 we started the reforestation of a part of the land with native trees of the Atlantic Rainforest and some fruit trees (agroforestry). Because of many other ongoing projects our plans of planting trees is somehow delayed. We are building a timber house in the wetlands there we need people who have some wood working skills.
We are living together in the main farm house. The kitchen is communitarian, we usually take turns for preparing the lunch. We cook vegetarian and try to use as much as possible what we can grow on our land.
You will have the opportunity to work in the organic garden and orchard, take care about our chickens and sheeps or take part in the building work of our beautiful country house that will be reformed in its original style.
The concept of our reforestation project includes MTB-trails in order to facilitate the planting and maintenance of the trees. We have a very nice bike workshop and we will prepare some bikes for this use.
We can provide simple accommodation, no single room guaranteed. We donít have cellphone signal nor land line telephone but we have Internet.
