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.

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 ;)

Foi muito especial estar em Lençóis no Viveiro. Diego e Theo, seu filho, fizeram com que eu me sentisse em casa desde os primeiros momentos, e o trabalho foi muito legal! Pude aprender muito com os dois!
Foi muito bom trabalhar fora da minha zona de conforto e me sentir tão acolhida ao mesmo tempo!

Obrigada por tudo e até a próxima!

Laura é uma pessoa extraordinária, de bom humor e muito gentil, pró-ativa e acostumada ao trabalho voluntario. Muito atenciosa com as pessoas (especialmente as crianças) e apesar de jovem, é madura e inteligente. Uma pessoa que tem muito a agregar e que qualquer um gostaria de ter por perto, tanto no trabalho quanto no descanso.

Experiência maravilhosa, recomendo muito!
A chapada é um lugar incrível, bem como o Diego, o Theo - filho dele, e o Viveiro em si. Fiquei duas semanas, mas já nos primeiros dias me senti em casa.
Trabalho tranquilo e com horários flexíveis, hospedagem super aconchegante e gente de buenissima onda!
