Agroforestry and vegetable garden in paradise - Ilhabela

1 review1

The Exchange

Hi, I live in the middle of the jungle in Ilhabela. I manage Ilhabela Yoga, a yoga brand, and I take care of the project Yoga Refloresta (for every yoga mat I sell, I plant a native tree around my place). I need help building a vegetable garden, planting native fruit trees in the rainforest, and I would like someone that would be okay taking care (feed, water, walking) of the dogs when I am away working.
