The Experience

We are a permaculture project near Serra do Cipó and 90km from Tancredo Neves International Airport. We care for a 17 ha farm which is aimed at growing a forest garden. The focus of the project is on research on environmental education, bioconstruction, self-sufficiency and gardening. During the Year there are many different kinds of work, for example working with trees and shrubs, mowing and mulching and bioconstruction

Foram dias maravilhosos ao lado de pessoas incríveis!!!! Todos na fazenda são uns amores e as crianças são umas fofurinhas!!!! Foram dias de muita troca e muito aprendizado!!! Feliz demais por ter passado esses dias com eles!!! Só consigo sentir gratidão por tudo!!!!!



Poder vivir un tiempo en esta comunidad fue una experiencia única, Babi y Diogo transmiten mucha buena energía, como también el lugar, completamente mágico por la naturaleza. Su hija Mel es una pequeña súper linda, inteligente, y graciosa. Me hubiese encantado conocer al resto de a familia, a los otros niños, pero ello ya será en otra oportunidad.
Les agradezco por el amor que me dieron en tan poquito tiempo.



O Alicerce vivo é um lugar maravilhoso! Paula, Babi, Diego e Diogo me receberam super bem e foram sempre bem solicitos. As crianças são um amor. ♥️ Foram dias de muito aprendizado, feliz por ter passado esses dias com vocês. Até a próxima. Já sinto saudades. Obrigada por tanto, Alicerce. 😊



Muito feliz por ter escolhido a Alicerce vivo pra passar minha primeira experiência com a worldpackers. Fui muito bem recebida e acolhida. O ambiente é bastante familiar e tranquilo.
Como fui em época de chuvas, minhas atividades e aprendizado ficaram um pouco limitadas, mas isso não fez com que os dias que passei na fazenda fossem menos interessantes e enriquecedores.
Agradeço de todo o coração à Bárbara, Diogo, André e à fofurinha da Mel, que tornou a experiência toda muito mais divertida. Em breve eu volto pra ajudar mais e conhecer os outros moradores. :) Um abração!!!
