How about a city life detox in exchange for your skill and work experience?

Eco Caminhos is an Eco Farm that has the intention to become a fully self-sustaining community in Brazil, located in the peaceful city of Nova Friburgo – RJ.

We work in order to produce our own in food, energy and building materials.
We believe this is the ideal setting for humans to develop themselves, as we learn to live (co-living), work (coworking), evolve and resolve our problems together.

At the farm, we are a multicultural team of volunteers who try to follow permaculture principles.
Here you will be able to 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, refresh at our backyard waterfall or spend quality time with the other residents.

Learn about permaculture, bioconstruction, agroforestry and most of all live in beautiful nature.
