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!

It's amazing because of you!



One of the best experiences I ever had!!! Wilson is amazing host, very friendly and caring. I was immersed to the permaculture right away, learned how to make composter, had chance to plant plants, learn about agroforestry and da little but of bio construction. I met amazing people at the eco village and had a chance to explore Rio De Janeiro and surrounding beach towns. Incredible and experience, highly recommended who wants to runaway from the noisy city life.

Dear Lasha, You re very kind to speak so highly from the experience you had here. I thought it was going to be longer, at the same time since we talk a ot, it seems it was a long time! Take care!



Since the first minute I put my foot in this beautiful project I was learning incredible things about agrofloresty, bio-consteuction and the local culture. In Wilson I found a caring teacher who treats the travelers as his own children. The space atracts incredible vibes comming from travelers arround the world. I won't forget this experience ever!

We had a great week with Wilson and his family, learnt a lot about permaculture and Brazil culture. We also cooked, played local card game and picked up mushrooms. Thank you for an excellent experience ❤️

This was my wife and my first experience with permaculture. We learned a LOT. Wilson and his wife Priscilla were excellent hosts. While we were there we met open-minded people from all over the world. We worked hard, ate a lot, and played many games. All in all, it was an excellent experience.
