About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We have a small property between Rio and São Paulo with a beautiful landscape located 1000 meters high. We are right next to Cunha, a touristic town very known by pottery, mushroom production and gastronomy. We do cultural events and permacultural workshops. We are also involved with local community teaching languages and craftsmanship.

You will help with our organic cultures, feed the chickens, and build structures such as chicken coops, benches, tables, and gardens. We are also learning so much here, so it will be an exchange of ideas and techniques.

You will stay in a dorm room with shared bathrooms. The room will beall yours for most of time. You will only share during events and workshops when the house is full. We offer breakfast and you can have our local production of vegetables and fruits.

We need help 4-5 hours per day and 5 days per week. We are very flexible about that. We will demand more during the events, but if everything is ok, nobody will complain if you relax and enjoy the place. We charge 5 USD per day for maintenance and food.
