The Experience

Temos vários pequenos projetos em andamento que envolvem técnicas de bioconstrução usando madeira e bambu. Neste momento precisamos construir uma área coletiva que servirá tanto para camping quanto futuros voluntários. Para isso temos um projeto de pequenas cabanas e também um dormitório que será feito usando bioconstrução de Bambu.

Durante minhas andanças sempre ficava de olho nas aplicações pra alguma vivência em permacultura ou agrofloresta, sabia que o universo trabalharia de forma que encontraria o melhor lugar no momento certo.
E assim se deu.
Abro um sorriso só de falar do Sítio Desperto! A reconexão se fez presente desde o dia em que cheguei. O lugar é lindo e é como se fizesse bem pra alma a todo minuto.
Michel se tornou um grande amigo que fazia questão de compartilhar e mediar todo o conhecimento com quem estava disposto a compreender.
Sou completamente grato por fazerem parte desse meu despertar.
