A experiência

Goals:
1- Implement an agroforestry system in pasture areas and construct a small house at a very low cost using only recycled materials from the region, such as pallets, eucalyptus, clay, and grass.
2- Use the acquired experience to collaboratively develop a bioconstruction model that can be distributed free of charge to the local community. This will allow the community to learn from our mistakes and successes a replicate the acquired knowledge
