Eco Farm Brazil

Eco Caminhos takes volunteering very seriously. We believe it is an incredible opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, and to build friendships. Here at our Eco Farm in Nova Friburgo, Brazil we bring together people from around the world. Volunteers bring creativity into our organisation, experience a sustainable way of life and, after leaving, spread the acquired knowledge across the globe. With over 10 years of experience in running volunteer programmes, we understand how to best organise them. At Eco Caminhos you learn about bioconstruction, organic farming, nature, the Portuguese language, and Brazilian culture, while making friends for life.

Mission Statement

Eco Caminhos wants to become a role model in Brazil and beyond when it comes to social development and sustainable farming, building and living. Our goal is to live in harmony with nature and produce our own food and energy, while the land grows in richness, productivity, and aesthetic beauty. We treat our own waste, generate our own energy and train underprivileged youth. We welcome tourists to experience this lifestyle, offering a wide variety of eco sports and workshops. In the near future our guests will be accommodated in Eco Lodges and offered locally cultivated organic food.

Description

Eco Caminhos - Permaculture Farm Brazil - Bioconstruction
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 peacefull setting disconnected from the hectic world. At the farm we follow the permaculture principals and you can learn about and practise 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.
