We stayed with Esther for 2 weeks and it was great. She is an amazing person and make you feel at home. She is always asking if the work she is giving you is ok and takes great care of the volunteers. We worked in the garden and we helped to restore the garage and the tools room. We really recommend this experience.

A Esther é uma pessoa muito querida, meiga, culta e educada. O lugar é simplesmente um paraíso. Cada um dos bichinhos é um pedacinho de amor nesse lugar mágico. Os trabalhos variam muito, mas valem a pena. Somente gratidão por tudo que vivi durante essas duas semanas. Foi incrível e já sinto saudades. 💚💚

Esse hiato na existência, respirando o ar da montanha, não poderia ter sido melhor. O lugar é incrível, os moradores todos acolhedores e sempre buscando somar, a natureza muito rica e os animais guardiões do sítio são os parceiros nesta jornada. As tarefas variam entre leves e moderadas, mas como o contato com a natureza é sempre presente, quem gosta, nem vê o tempo passar. Não tenho palavras para a anfitriã Esther, uma pessoa muito cativante e ativa. Se preocupando sempre se as tarefas estão adequadas para você e se está gostando. Ela faz você se sentir em casa e sempre com uma boa conversa.

Namastê,
Foi uma experiência muito valida,fiquei orgulhosa da minha primeira decisão a Esther é uma pessoas muito especial assim como todos os seres que estão a sua volta seja do reino animal ou vegetal.
Recomendo que leiam o perfil do anfitrião no site e não no App pois falta alguma informações(ou pelo menos passou despercebido da minha pessoal )tipo:não beber ou fumar.Recomendo não levar mala grande assim como levar luvas tanto para lavar louça como pra protejer do frio.
Gratidão,Gratiluz,axé
PS.:Saudade especial da Rox e da Fofona

Olá Alzira, obrigada por voluntariar comigo e os demais serres desse lugar! Bem lembrado!! Meu carro é pequeno e sempre vai e volta com compras e, as vezes, com a Roxie. Mala grande não cabe no porta mala, então o espaço fica apertado. Traga roupa de frio, pois estamos na Serra da Mantiqueira a 1500m e , nos meses de inverno, faz frio e cai geada regularmente. Como está escrito na vaga, traga tudo que é indispensável no seu dia a dia e fique a vontade de perguntar antes. Para o trabalho na plantação tenho botas e luvas a disposição.

As duas semanas que passei na chácara das flores foram incríveis! Esther é uma mulher muito inspiradora, querida e receptiva, mostrou diversas trilhas e fizemos vários passeios legais. A parte do trabalho foi super leve e interessante, aprendi a plantar e cuidar de plantas da horta e também tive muito contato com animais. Indico essa experiência de olhos fechados.
