The Experience

We are a family (Franco-Sud Americaine) that lives on a small coconut farm. We fight to live with a logic of sustainability, amid the unconsciousness of modernity. Recycling, planting, taking care of nature and experimenting in the creation of different natural products based on coconut and coconut oil. Our site is located 10 kms from the city of Aracaju, in front of the beach, surrounded and protected from beautiful plants,

It was such an amazing and challenging experience.
The host, Paulo, proposed many activities so we could develop our own habilities. We also went to river nearby many times and it was so magical.
I would totally recomend this place to those interested in learning and being present.
Thanks, María and Paulo, for everything!!! A month with you guys made my life change completly <3

Paulo is an enthusiastic person, full of energy. His mind flies fast from one thing to another. Talking with him is pure energy. I've got to learn how to make coconut oil, and Paulo let me grafitti his wall and do painting stuff. I'm thankful.

I went in a very particular moment of the farm as I was the only one volunteer and Paulo was on holidays, so it was very atipical my staying. Anyway, Paulo was very kind to show me a lot of beautiful places around Sergipe. He knows the best places!
The farm is very beautiful with a lot of animals like monkeys, chicken, ducks and others., so you can really feel the experience of living in the middle of the nature. I could learn how to make coconut oil, as it was my goal: Paulo knows a lot about the process and he was very generous to share all his knowledge. I am very grateful for that.

Meninas não vão para esse lugar. Não é um lugar seguro mentalmente para mulheres.
Por favor, não vão. A violência psicológica lá é horrível.

Es un lugar bonito, que preserva Mãe Terra. Uno se siente en en casa ya que Paulo es una persona generosa que no duda en compartir sus momentos de vida. También pude aprender bastante cosas a través de sus conocimientos y competencias. Al inicio fue un poco difícil entender el funcionamiento del sitio y mi rol de volontariado ahí. Pero la flexibilidad de Paulo ayudó rápidamente a encontrar una onda de entendimiento. Tuvimos divergencias de opinion sobre las condiciones de los animales domésticos. Estoy agradecida por haber contribuído a su lindo proyecto, a carácter humano, social y ambiental
