The Experience

Este programa é uma forma de integrarmos pessoas em busca da transição para a sustentabilidade, não se trata de um curso, mas garantimos um aprendizado profundo através da solução de questões básicas do dia-a-dia que um “Sítio de Permacultura Familiar” e Ecovilas vivenciam. É uma imersão de 6 a 8 hrs p/dia/5 dias p/semana, para conhecer na prática este tipo de vida, ter uma mudança de cenário ou ter uma idéia do que é ter o seu próprio sítio!

I think that was one of the most important experience to my growth in a lot of social/ecological/human aspects.
A good place to learn more about permaculture, bio design, plantation and animal Care.

Estuve poco tiempo pero aprendí mucho sobre permacultura. Lo que más me llevo conmigo es el aprendizaje y la responsabilidad de cuidar el medio ambiente y de las personas.
El lugar está dentro de la mata atlántica y es como estar en un sueño. Aprendes de todo, sobre biocontruccion, cuidado de la flora y si gustas de cocinar.
Estoy muy agradecida de haber estado esa semana en este proyecto, las personas son muy amables y cálidas.
Si buscas aprender y trabajar este es el lugar indicado para ti :3

Foi uma experiência extremamente engrandecedora! Sou eternamente grata a todos do Muriqui Assu! Todos muito apaixonados pelo projeto que fazem, muito receptivos, acolhedores e compreensivos.
Passar esse tempo com vocês me fez aprender muita coisa, muito mais do que permacultura e bioconstrução, aprendi sobre a vida, natureza, partilhamos histórias e experiências! Melhor lugar para o meu primeiro voluntariado!!
