We started a small business in our land. It's a seedling nursery for Brazilian MATA ATLANTICA rainforest trees, specially focused on the Rio de Janeiro state species.

We have to find more than 800 species. Have already found around 360. We are producing 282 species from which 212 are ready to sell - Which is a high level of variety!

Beside me and my husband (we are retired, 61 and 65 years old and our work is voluntary) we have two employees. More than that, by law, we have a Forest Engeneer hired as a technical responsable - whose work is to visit the nursery 4 times a year and certify if the job is correctly done.

Alongside we associated with a young biologist (37 years old), master degree in botanics, who help us finding the species in the forest nearby (neighbours land owners who freely allow the search) from which we get the seeds - strictly in the amount we use in ways to leave the most for the local fauna).

What we need: help in different ways, like doing 'exsi... more inside

5 minutes away from Utinga Park: 1400 hectares of a big ecotourism project in an area of native Amazon rainforest integrally protected; and 2 min away from Botanical Garden of Amazon.

Beyond the Belém, I have a project in a country house in Mosqueiro, a paradise atlantic island in the Amazon. There we can develop most of the activities of the Helpx, in view of being in the country area, with lots of vegetation, beautiful landscapes, beaches and forests, that will allow more interaction with nature.

There isn't hosting agrément or excess rules. There is encouragement for demonstrations of your creativity!

The work is easy. It's basically gardening, cleaning, teaching languages and cooking healthy foods...4 hours a day.

Besides that, I have a project to build a sailboat. If you have any suggestion we can talk about it...

I'm a retired french (Breton from Brest) sailor living on my sailing boat (Samson C Baron Ketch 57 feet).
I found my paradise in Paraty (200 km south of Rio de Janeiro)
The boat is basically anchored in Paraty bay, 2mn with motored dinghy from historical center.
I always need light help for cleaning or to fix small problems on the boat.
I'll offer free hosting to competent helpers for 3 to 4 hours of "work" per day, and for short stay only.
Welcome in Paradise


UPDATE : During summer season (december to march) I'm doing charter sailing in the islands with paying guests, so it's impossible for me to plan the time where I can host volonteers.
So, contact me only when you are about to arrive in Paraty.

UPDATE 2 : Considering the kind of requests I'm receiving, I want to meet volonteers on land before accepting them on board (sorry, but we are in Brazil...)

UPDATE 3 : I get up at 6h every morning, so if you use to stay in bed till 10h plse stay on land

The project involves transitioning from the large scale corn and soybean monoculture style of farming into food forests or agroflorestas.

Planting agroflorestas (Food Forests) is the best way to farm in the tropics. It creates food, fertile soil and water. Here we practice techniques of sintropic agriculture, taught by Ernst Gotsch. Techniques in planting consortiums and managing through prunning.

Planting and managing agroflorestas are the main tasks. Other tasks may include working in the plant nursery, harvesting vegetables and fruits, collecting organic matter for mulch, and seed ollecting.

Volunteers are welcome for two weeks or longer.

Accomodation is shared in a two bedroom house with a comunal kitchen area. Breakfasts and dinners are prepared together, with mostly food from the organic gardens. There is lunch served during the week days.

If you are growing plants/ vegetables, you might think is a good idea do simply scoop some soil/ sand from your yard to grow your plants in. Actually this is a bad idea. Garden soil contains many types of bactéria, (some of them really bad ) and it can be harmful to your plants and vegetables. We, from MOCOCA SUBSTRATO, make our own organic soil mix, so your vegetables and plants can grown free from unwanted bactérias. Our mix is used for gardens in general, coffee, and organic vegetables. We are located in São Paulo State, but our main clients stay in Minas Gerais. We distribut to supermakets, Garden shops and farms.

We are very aware that we must take good care of our good nature so we also sell some other recicle produts for gardens and farms.

We would love to share some ideias and learn also from diferente people and their own experiences. Duties would include to keep a close eye in our soil mix --always taking samples from it (it can´t be too dry neither too wet.) Pack... more inside

We are a retired couple of age 63, a french man and a brazilian woman from Bahia state, who decided to spend the rest of their life to preserve atlantic forest (25ha) while creating an activity around farming and horse riding with friends, family, and visitors. The ranch accomodations and horse facilities are brand new and have officially opened in February 2017 with the objective to host up to 6 riders from all over the world and organise from half-day to several days rides on horseback. Coconut plantation as well as many different tropical fruit gardens are already producing but we plan to develop more and achieve above 50% use of locally produced food in the meals we serve on the ranch.

This is a project to develop an intentional community near Rio Manso! Come and be part of the our Heart Space Project, and participate in Permaculture, Agroforestry, Natural Building, Art, and Healthy Living.

This place was started 4 years ago by inspirational Brazilians who wanted to bring harmonious farming practices to the land, rather than conventional mono-cropping with toxic chemicals. This is home to an established organic Agroforest with an abundant and dynamic ecosystem, which provides most of the food to the homestead.

This is a large property surrounded by regenerated jungle as well as conventional farms. There is a central Mother House with a large deck, kitchen and living space, and a fire pit. On the property is a beautiful creek for swimming and a fresh water spring, and nearby waterfalls. There is also a magical treehouse, and many types of bird and insect. The farm is located 63km from the capital of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte. Green Belt of the capital.

We are located in the heart of the Atlantic Forest, on the banks of Rio de Contas river, 15 km from Itacaré – south of Bahia. It is an organic agroforestry cocoa farm and also a Private Reserve of Natural Heritage (PRNH), with an exceptional biodiversity.
An ideal place to rest and develop therapeutic, educational, meditative, physical and artistic techniques.
“Center of Reconnection with the Self” is a place for spiritual development. Its intention is to become a sustainable place, where we can live in harmony with the natural cycles, producing high quality food, living with simplicity and consciousness and welcoming visitors that also support these ideas.
Today a small community, that we call “Family”, is being formed to share a healthy daily practice, with the common goal of cultivating inner and outer harmony. There is a morning Chi Kung practice and we eat wholesome vegan food (sometimes being ovo-lacto-vegetarian).
