Volunteer at an Eco Farm in Brazil
Make friends from around the world
Experience a Permaculture Eco Farm in Brazil
Welcome to Eco Caminhos a self-sustaining Eco Farm situated in the beautiful Atlantic Forest mountain region in Brazil. We invite people from across the globe to join us and experience our simplistic lifestyle in a peaceful setting disconnected from the hectic world. At the farm we follow the permaculture principles and you can learn about and practice bioconstruction (natural building), agroforestry (syntrophic farming) and renewable energy. In your free time you can share a nice healthy meal at a campfire, go hiking or do horseback riding in the mountains, jump under one of the amazing waterfalls or do a nice board game with the other residents. We offer you Portuguese classes and the possibility to live at the farm with other residents or submerge yourself in the local culture and language by doing a homestay with local families.

Misson – 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, living in harmony with nature. We treat our waste and produce our own food and energy, while the land grows in richness, productivity and aesthetic beauty. Eco Caminhos is also dedicated to training underprivileged youth.
