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 actually 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 in hikes up to the incredible mountain peaks around the farm. Depending on your interests there are additional options possible like wild camping in the mountains, campfire, 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 for 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 own organic garden. We emphasize on healthy food.
