I had an amazing time at Anovafloresta! The place is beyond beautiful and surrounded by nature. The host, Stephane, has an amazing lifestyle and story which we exchanged during a few dinner conversations; his neighbor Petra is just as awesome! The tasks were intuitive and the experience was memorable and full of insightful information. Thank you Stephane for sharing your home and experiences with me! You have definitely impacted my outlook on nature, sustainability and life as whole!

Getting back to mother nature is always great and here it is your right spot when you would be around Porto Seguro and Trancoso.
After volunteer for a week I have been learning lots of tips about permaculture and green building.One good thing was to learn how to build an earth oven and how to re duce,re use,re cicle properly.
Worth the trip and the experience,
Thanks Stephane and team!

Experiência realmente imersiva! Stephane é uma pessoa realmente brilhante, paciente e completamente experiente na área! Quando se entra no mundo dele você percebe que as coisas podem se tornar muito mais fácil, seja na alimentação, maneira de enxergar a natureza e tudo que compõe esse ambiente, vestimenta e no geral, modo de viver! Ele é bem flexível e compreende que muitos passaram por ali mas ele entende que aquele é teu momento, ele vai explicar o que for preciso! Petra também auxilia em muitos casos e os cachorros fecha tudo com chave de ouro! Voltaria e ficaria mais tempo com certeza!

Acredito que esse voluntariado não pode ser chamado de ''trabalho'', porque na verdade é mais um curso teórico e prático sobre permacultura e coisas afins a sustentabilidade.
Foi maravilhoso aprender tudo isso e ainda ter a oportunidade de colocar a mão na massa e fazer coisas que nunca fiz na minha vida.
Sobre o local: os voluntários ficam na área de camping e possuem uma cozinha com fogão elétrico e geladeira para utilizar. Há banheiro seco e dois chuveiros, um descoberto (que é maravilhoso) e um fechado.
Sobre a comida, o Stephane sempre pergunta se há alguma preferência!

Passei 30 dias na nova floresta e foi incrível toda a experiência, aprendizado e conexões que fiz com os voluntários que passaram por lá. o Stephane é super tranquilo e paciente pra explicar e passar os trabalhos.
Foi uma excelente oportunidade !
