Incredible 4-7 Day Hands-on Eco Farm Experience

Availability: All year        Duration:  4-7 days        Start: flexible

 

What will you be doing?

We offer people the opportunity to experience life on an Eco Farm. Not a fancy farm holiday but experience what it means to live on a permaculture farm. You will be able to stick your hands in the dirt in our organic garden, agroforestry, and bioconstruction projects. You will be offered theoretical and practical workshops. And to make the experience complete you can participate horseback riding and hikes up to the incredible surrounding mountains. Depending on your interests there are additional options possible like wild camping in the mountains,  bread baking workshops, and a tour of the region. At the farm, you will meet the people of our international community.

 

Where will you be staying?

We offer homestay accommodation with the Bijen family (founders) or with a local Brazilian family. At the Bijen family, you will stay at a beautiful bioconstruction house on top of the mountain and you will have the entire top floor to yourself. It has 1 larger and 1 smaller bedroom and a bathroom. From your bedroom, you have incredible views over the farm and the Atlantic forest.

The homestay with a local Brazilian family next to the farm allows you to experience the local culture, customs, food. and practice your Portuguese. Our chosen families are very friendly and welcoming. All meals are included and you will be offered ingredients from our organic garden. We emphasize on healthy food.
