Vir para o Sítio Paraíso foi a escolha certa. Desde a primeira vez q vi o sítio no WP senti que era aqui que deveria estar e eu estava certo. O Rafa é um anfitrião incrível. Atencioso com os voluntários, n deixa faltar nada, responde nossas dúvidas e sempre aberto e comunicativo pra trocar ideias e conhecimentos. O sítio é lindo, os bichinhos são um amores ❤️ e a natureza em todo o espaço é maravilhosa e nos dá a tranquilidade e paz que precisamos. O trabalho é um pouco puxado mas o contato com a terra, as plantas e a natureza nos mantém descansados e sempre prontos pras atividades do dia dia

Realmente fiz a escolha certa para meu primeiro voluntariado, o Sítio Paraíso tem uma vibe maravilhosa, tranquila, tem boa estrutura pra receber voluntários, o anfitrião Rafael não deixa faltar nada, super atencioso e cumpre com o combinado! A experiência agregou demais, vários aprendizados. O trabalho é puxado mas eu já esperava e estava preparada, deu tudo certo e só tenho a agradecer por tudo o que vivi lá. Gratidão Rafa e WP por possibilitar essa experiência <3

Estava em busca de uma vivência fora da zona de conforto e foi exatamente o que encontrei. O trabalho é bastante intenso, a manutenção da agrofloresta requer muitos cuidados e esforço. Esteja preparado para sentir dores nos primeiros dias, principalmente se não estiver acostumado, mas depois o corpo se adapta, o mesmo com as picadas de porvinhas e o calor intenso durante o dia. O anfitrião é muito cuidadoso e preocupado com os voluntários. Foi uma experiência valiosa, conheci pessoas com historias interessantes, que com certeza não conheceria na minha bolha de convívio. :-)

Recomendo a experiência no sítio Paraíso se você busca aprender sobre Agrofloresta e se (re)conectar com a natureza! Entre os intervalos das atividades do sítio, trabalhei remotamente e, apesar de ter conseguido conciliar os trabalhos, recomendo que vá focado apenas na função do voluntariado, para aproveitar e se entregar 100% à experiência. Na maioria das refeições os alimentos consumidos eram orgânicos e do próprio sítio. O Rafael e sua família são muito acolhedores e sou grata pelos momentos que vivi lá!
