Mission – Permaculture

Eco Caminhos wants to become a role model in Brazil and beyond when it comes to social development and sustainable building and living. We follow the permaculture principles.

What makes our farm so special?

At Eco Caminhos we offer people the chance to experience life on our eco farm and to actively participate in all aspects of it, no matter how short your stay might be. You will be fully included, because we want you to feel part of Eco Caminhos. People who join us learn about bioconstruction, farming, nature, the organisational culture and, above all, about themselves. It is also a great place to make friends from around the world.
