Uma família incrível! Um exemplo a ser seguido em sustentabilidade, gentileza, hospitalidade e conhecimento sobre a diversidade da natureza, passam uma visão preciosa sobre algo que foi essencial na humanidade e em breve se tornará indispensável: Viver em harmonia e respeito com a mãe natureza!. Dessa experiência tive conhecimento de sobra sobre bioconstrução, apicultura e culinária sustentável para levar na bagagem da vida, mas mais que isso, uma vivência e trocas de ideia com pessoas genuinamente especiais. Sentirei saudades de meu companheirinho Artur e de toda família Gentil. Obrigado!

Um Outro Mundo é Possível, sim. A experiência no Alzira Farm foi imersão absoluta no que temos de mais sustentável. Da matriarca Alzira ao pequeno Artur - sem H -, vivi momentos de fraternidade em uma família incrível. Be There or Be Square! Agro Não é Pop ! Valeu Gentil, Mariana, Ciro, Artur e Nadine !

A experiência com Gentil e sua família foi linda, tive a oportunidade de conhecer várias plantas (PANC) que nunca havia provado além de banho de rio e de ficar acomodada com privacidade em uma casinha linda de bioconstrução! Mariana me ensinou muita coisa sobre cosméticos naturais que ela mesma produz. Os alimentos fornecidos são todos produzidos no local.

Simplesmente incrível!!!
Gentil é uma pessoa incrível e tem um conhecimento em bio construção fora de série!!! Fora o conhecimento em alimentos naturais, além de ser ótimo cozinheiro...
Mariana é a gentileza em pessoa... uma simplicidade e um conhecimento que não se importa em dividir...
Dona Alzira é...sem palavras... um exemplo de mulher, mãe, avó que deve ser seguido...
Não sou boa com palavras... mas a experiência foi estupenda... aprendi muita coisa... não há como descrever! Somente estando lá para entender...
E tem o Arthur... mas ele eu vou deixar pra vocês descobrirem...
Amei...

A estada na fazenda Alzira foi muito especial para mim. O aprendizado foi ótimo. Gentil e Alzira são pessoas que sentem paixão pelo que fazem e pela terra e que são transmitidas aos voluntários em todos os momentos. Eu me senti levado em conta para todas as tarefas do campo, sem qualquer tipo de discriminação. Eu recomendo 100% deste voluntariado.
