I had a wonderful time at the Viveiro and I could learn a lot about planting and seeding. The hours and tasks were flexible which also allows you to get to know the Chapada. Diego and Theo made me feel like at home and I enjoyed being there.

O Viveiro é uma das mudas de esperança que resistem neste mundo. Saguis e beija-flores nos visitam diariamente, permitindo uma conexão direta e diária com a natureza. Um belo jardim propicia área para camping, e a casa disponibilizada para voluntários é de um conforto impressionante. Diego cuida do lugar com dedicação e amorosidade e Theo, seu filho, nos alegra com sua inteligência e espontaneidade! A roça, onde as árvores nativas ou de lei e muitas frutíferas são plantadas, é um lugar pensado em todos os seus aspectos, respeitando-se os princípios permaculturais. Experiência excelente!

Este foi o meu primeiro voluntariado e sinto que estou mal acostumada... O Diego e o Theo, seu filho, são uns amores, sempre se comunicando fazendo com que o ambiente se torne familiar e agradável a todos!
As tarefas são tranquilas o que acaba por disponibilizar tempo para conhecer a cidade, as trillhas, sair e fazer amigos locais... Eu amei!

A experiência com Dominique foi ótima, menina muito legal, se mostrou muito dispostas a fazer as atividades, inclusive as mais durar. Agradável, bom astral e proativa nas tarefas domesticas. Gostei muito do tempo que ela me ajudou na roça e no viveiro de mudas. Dominique será sempre bem vinda,

A minha experiência no viveiro foi a melhor de todas as experiências de voluntariado que já tive em mais de 6 anos viajando como voluntária. Um ambiente familiar, respeitoso, agradável para compartilhar, trocar ideias e aprender muito sobre meio ambiente. Diego é uma pessoa que pode ensinar muito sobe agricultura e ecologia, não percam a oportunidade de compartilhar uns dias na sua casinha maravilhosa e conhecer tudos os encantos da Chapada diamantina com um dos melhores anfitriões locais. Muito grata pela experiência e pelos aprendizagens compartilhados.

Já trabalhei com agrofloresta, mas foi a primeira experiência com o plantio de árvores nativas. Plantamos mais 50 mudas e foi uma dia de muitos aprendizados. Fiquei muito feliz em aprender algo novo e fazer parte desse plantio. Os turnos de trabalho foram super justos, com horários flexíveis e conseguimos ser muito produtivos em pouco tempo. Além disso, o Diego é um ótimo anfitrião, sempre nos deixando à vontade em sua casinha. Muito agradecida por tudo!

Cris foi ótima, chegou meio de surpresa junto com outros voluntarios mas se mostrou muito boa gente, de fácil convívio e blogueira agilizada, super antenada em agroecologia, espiritualidade e terapias alternativas (óleos essenciais, principlamente), ajudou bastante no plantio de árvores na roça e se enturmou tao bem com @s [email protected] de lençois que ate ganhou "boiadas" em restaurantes e trekkings ;)
