Eco Caminhos is an eco farm in Brazil, situated in the beautiful mountains of Nova Fribugo, where we work with bioconstruction, organic farming, and permaculture. We offer volunteers the chance to become a part of our project and live in our international community, while enjoying nature and ecotourism activities. Short-term volunteering at Eco Caminhos is an excellent way to gain practical skills and experience in eco-farming, bioconstruction, and permaculture. At our eco farm, you will live and work with people from around the world. Living in a rustic setting, you will have the opportunity to make lifelong friends while learning the Portuguese language. The short-term volunteer programme is designed for younger or inexperienced candidates, or for people who simply lack the time to join us for an extended period of time. Volunteers are expected to work 24 hours per week and the programme is adjusted to their personal interests and preferences.

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.
