We had such an amazing experience at the farm! Ore and Eli have a beautiful home with lots to learn from, they made us feel welcome immediately. The work was fun and enlightening. Our experience in Arraial would not have been the same without their kindness and guidance. Muito obrigada!!

I already felt a great energy when I got in touch with Ore, he directed me, suggesting the best and most comfortable way to get to Arraial d'ajuda in my full day trip from north of Bahia, guiding me through the smoothest path I could walk through to get to the farm. I can say that the stuff it's just fantastic, trustworthy and easy going, ready to teach you everything you need to know to be able to do your daily task as better as you can! Ready to help me at any time getting inside Brazilian culture and language, making sure everyone always felt comfortable with it!

Estar no sítio foi uma experiência maravilhosa.. É um lugar de paz, de conexão, de responsabilidade, de imersão. Tem uma energia tão gostosa quem nem da vontade de sair. No começo as atividades podem parecer difíceis, mas quando põe a mão ma massa você vai se conectando com a terra, com as plantas e cria um vinculo com elas, se torna fácil e prazeroso. Infelizmente a Eli se ausentou e não pude ter muito contato com ela, mas o Ore sempre nos orientou com muita paciência.. O que levo desse lugar incrível é gratidão!

Foram 20 dias de MUITO aprendizado e olhar para si e a natureza. o sítio, Eli e Ore foram muito especiais, me identifiquei demais com Eli e viramos grandes amigas, o dia a dia é com ela na horta, regando, adubando e cuidando das tantas plantinhas dessa pequena floresta em meio ao paraiso de arraial. Existe sim a dificuldade da vida em barraca e convivência com os insetos, maas com o tempo e mente aberta para alguns perrengues, tudo dá certo! No fim virou crescimento pessoal e superação. Foi lindo viver conectada a natureza e aprender tanto sobre a terra. Recomendo e espero voltar!

A experiência foi muito interessante, o espaço é bem agradável, repleto de árvores, com uma cozinha muito agradável em meio a natureza, ambiente limpo, super legal! A localização é ótimo, perto da praia e do centro da cidade e a Eli e o Ore são bem simpáticos. Me senti um pouco só pois não havia mais voluntariados no momento que fui, recomendo fazer esse voluntariado em dupla! Obrigada pela experiência, até a próxima! ✨
