Sin duda una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida, recomiendo 100% fazenda de Marcus para la gente que le gusta la naturaleza y que busca un lugar que le brinde paz interior. Me voy muy agradecido de todas las personas que viven ahí ya que te hacen sentir uno más de la familia. Espero volver en algún momento, los llevaré por siempre en mi corazón :)

Sinceramente superou minhas expectativas! Eu amei conhecer as pessoas envolvidas no projeto, fui muito bem recebida, aprendi e continuo aprendendo muito com os conhecimentos e sabedorias que o Renato e o Esmael tem na prática, são grandes professores com muita humildade e paciência para ensinar a todos que estão dispostos a trocar experiências e sempre tomam muito cuidado com o nosso bem estar nos trabalhos. As horas de trabalho são tranquilas e eles são bem resilientes com as formas de trocas que podemos oferecer. Tô tão feliz aqui que até vou ficar um pouco mais 😊

Não há palavras pra descrever o cuidado, carinho e atenção que Marcus, Renato, Vanice e Ismael tiveram com a gente em todos os momentos. Nos sentimos muito livres para ajudar nas atividades de cultivo e manutenção da terra, e ao mesmo tempo aproveitar lugares lindos, de natureza abundante, que eles cuidam com tanto amor e carinho. Aprendemos sobre agrofloresta e alimentação sustentável, vendo de perto o quão importante é valorizar o produtor de alimentos orgânicos. Só temos a agradecer por nos receberem tão bem e compartilharem um pouco de tudo que sabem e cuidam todos os dias.

Minhas expectativas foram extremamente superadas!!! Foi incrível poder viver essa experiência na Fazenda São Marcos. Fui recebida como se estivesse em família e aprendi muito com todos que tive contato. Em época de pandemia e de tanta incerteza sobre a vida, conhecer pessoas como Renato, Ismael, Renan, Vanice, Marcos e Eliane, gente de coração bom e muita dedicação e respeito àquilo que fazem, dá aquela aquecida no coração e ascende uma esperança de que podemos fazer do mundo um lugar melhor, mesmo diante das dificuldades. Espero voltar em breve!!!
