My time in Vale do Eden was a really great time. I really want to go back to Vale do Eden, Edgar and his family are awesome people. They are always trying to help everybody. Vale do Eden is a new project but is a really beautiful dream, if you want to help them with this dream, I can garantee that it will be a great experience.

O Vale do Éden é um lugar onde você encontra pessoas maravilhosas. O Saga é um excelente anfitrião. O Vale está em processo de construção e aprimoramento, e é incrível participar desse processo. Pude aprender várias coisas e descobrir vários talentos em mim. Então, eu estou muito feliz por ter passado esse tempo voluntariando ali. VALE MUITO A PENA 🥰😍

Só tenho a agradecer a comunidade do Vale do Éden, aos voluntários, e à todos os moradores que fizeram dessa experiência algo incrível! Fui muito bem acolhida por todos e conheci pessoas que espero poder manter o contato :) O ambiente é muito bonito e extenso, com um córrego logo ao fundo, vários projetos estão em desenvolvimento, como o cinema, o jardim de hortas medicinais, etc. As atividades diárias são combinadas tranquilamente com o anfitrião (Saga)
Existe muitas coisas para serem feitas ainda, a caminhada é lenta, mas sem dúvidas estão no caminho certo! Espero poder voltar futuramente.

Minha experiência no Vale do Éden foi sensacional!

Tanto o Saga como todos os moradores da ecovila e os outros voluntários me receberam super bem! Considero todos meus amigos.

Durante minha experiência fiquei na casa comunitária com outros voluntários e foi bem de boa.

Claro que tem muito trabalho e alguns são pesados, mas eu fiquei feliz de fazer parte e ajudar a construir algo tão massa. O Saga também faz o possível para alocar as pessoas naquilo que mais gostam e que tem mais habilidade.

Diversão não faltou também! Foram várias trilhas, refeições compartilhas, fogueira e passeios.

Propuse mi colaboración para catalogar el patrimonio botánico y biológico de la Ecovila Vale do Eden. La tarea tomó más tiempo que lo previsto. Yo me sentí tan a gusto con las familias que viven en la finca, que no ví el tiempo pasar. En Vale do Eden se está viviendo una experiencia realmente transformadora que no se limita a un simple voluntariado donde te ofrecen un lugar para dormir. Venir a Aragoiamia es realmente descubrir una cultura, una historia, una geografía del Cerrado brasileño y sobre todo la familia Barbosa que con el liderazgo de Saga, hace avanzar todo el maravilloso proyecto.
