About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

The Fazenda Passagem is a historic inn and rural museum located in São Paulo country side in a region full of nature and biodiversity called Ribeira Valley . The construction is dated to the 17th century and we keep the constructive techniques of the people who lived there faithfully. The seat is well next to some "quilombos" remaining traditional communities slave descendants who continued to live on the banks of rivers and amid the dense forests of the Brazilian rainforest. We are a traditional family in search of people willing to work not only on the farm but with all the biome of the region. Helping people, communities, animals and the institutions which work for human development of the region. The farm is on the banks of Ribeira River in a very cozy place full of fantasy and good people to exchange experiences and knowledge about the forest and its ancestors entities.
