O lugar é fantástico! Tem uma uma energia muito forte e é repleto de cachoeiras, animais e paisagens maravilhosas. Eu aprendi muito sobre sustentabilidade e sobre a importância de consumir alimentos orgânicos e locais. A alimentação é super saudável e muito saborosa. Marcus é uma pessoa muito gentil e explica tudo muito bem e cautelosamente. A única coisa que faltou foi uma organização de horários e uma comunicação melhor de Alexandre com os voluntários. Mas isso não minimiza tudo que ele me ensinou e a experiência linda que tive na fazenda, é realmente espetacular e espero voltar algum dia.

Lugar magnífico, muita natureza, um belo lago não muito longe, um lindo riacho passa por debaixo da enorme casa que tem uma piscina gigante. Marcos é prontamente atencioso e Alexandre sempre tem a resposta para as suas dúvidas sobre a natureza. Tá recomendado!

Em geral esse lugar é perfeito para quem quer aprender sobre ecologia, ou tudo que envolve fauna e principalmente flora. Alexandre uns dos colaboradores é a wikipedia em pessoa, sabe de tudo! literalmente de tudo sobre arvores.
A casa é gigante, e os quartos são ótimos. Sem falar no rio lindo que passa debaixo da casa faz barulho muito agradável de agua.
Eu não sou vegano mas acostumei rápido com a comida, é tudo muito saudável e da pra fazer muita coisa boa.
Levar repelente é super recomendado!
