We are looking for volunteers for a minimum of 4 weeks, preferably 8 weeks or more. In the best case scenario, the volunteer with permacultural background would commit to 3 months and become part of our core group for a longer-term experience. If you don't want to make long term commitments right now, you can decide to extend your stay while you are here, just let us know if this possibility exists.
Presently, because of the high costs, we can take on volunteers with exchange for ACCOMMODATION ONLY, EACH PERSON BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN FOOD COSTS, which average approximately 80 Brazilian reais on weekly groceries shopping, that happen every Saturday. If you want to stay longer, we can arrange the exchange to include food.
You would be living in a shared bamboo room or in a tent. Sometimes, we can let you experience a treehouse or a separate room when not in use.
The activities consist on helping with the general running of the place, which include cleaning, maintenance, preparing the space to receive guests, caring for the gardens, organic vegetable patches, agroforestry, planting, helping with eco-building, recycling, painting and creative projects, whilst learning about permaculture and a more sustainable way of life in the country-side. This particular position has its focus on the gardening aspect of the project.
The work routine is 5 hours a day, 6 days a week, having Sunday as a day off.
We are looking for someone who is proactive and lively and can head the gardening projects working together with less experienced volunteers. It would need to be someone with practical experience in planting organic vegetables and other kinds of plants, within a permacultural background.
