The Experience

We are what we see as the ideal way of living. An Eco-village that was built over thirty years ago, we are inviting travellers that are willing to help and be part of the routine and productive tasks of our day to day life. We invite people to experience a life that is more sustainable and balanced. This is more than an exchange of skills for accommodation, but an opportunity to be a collaborative guest that will work with us 6 hours a day.

Mariana and Heraldo are simply amazing human beings. They made every effort to make me feel welcomed, comfortable, and included in all activities. Their Eco Village practices diverse sustainability initiatives - permaculture garden, mindful cooking and eating, biogas generation through sewage, etc. They give you the opportunity to participate in their daily activities - permaculture gardening, cooking, making mosaics - and you really learn so much from the interaction! Lastly, they are very involved in the Eco Village movement locally and globally and are very open to sharing their insights!

A Ecovila tem um estrutura incrível e os anfitriões (bem como todos que estavam por lá no curto período em que permaneci) foram atenciosos, solícitos, educados, respeitosos e exemplares. Que pessoas, amei conhecê-los! Poder conversar com cada um foi o melhor da estadia. Tenho ressalvas com relação ao horário de trabalho, por que não senti que há uma definição sobre isso p/ os voluntários. Aqui no site o período colocado é de 6 horas diárias, mas acabei trabalhando bem mais que isso, por seguir uma rotina que era comum a todos. Não foi um período de descanso e não curti muito o lugar em si.

Aprendi uma quantidade de informação que não aprenderia nunca na grande cidade.

Trabalhar na orta, comer o que foi colhido, e apr3nder um pouco mais da vida é algo que não tem preço.

Eraldo foi um anfitrião realmente atencioso, me deixava muito a vontade na casa e nos horários livres me mostrava o caminhos das melhores cachoeiras próximas.

Aliás a cachoeira de Monjolo é uma verdadeira maravilha onde vc tem a oportunidade de se conectar novamente com sua essência. Que viagem!
