Eco Caminhos came into existance in 2014 as an International volunteer based community that is looking to set an example when it comes to environmental practices, healthy human development and self-sustainability. The farm is set in the Atlantic forest mountains of Brazil where bioderversity is one of the richest on the planet, harbouring a high number of endemic species.



We believe that the current way of life lead by the majority of humanity has strayed away from the world’s natural life sustaining cycles, thus leading to many of the social and economical problems we humans face today.

Eco Caminhos is working toward creating a more humane and self-sustainable option where both the environment and people can grow in balance. In order to realise this goal, here at Eco Caminhos, we follow the Permaculture ideals, while focusing on Organic Farming, Sustainable Bioconstruction and Agroforestry. We believe in working hard as a community.

We also think that in order for humanity to move forward in the right direction, it would be beneficial that the practices we use are supported by mo dern technologies, implemented in moderation with responsibility and the aim of a positive impact.

The farm is located away from the hectic lifestyle of modern society, in a rural area where we can focus better on nature and develop a self-sustainable community, however we do also aim  to have a positive impact in the life of others and society, and in order to achieve this goal we offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, ecotourism experiences, as well as an apprenticeship program for disadvantaged brazilian teenegers. We do so in order to further our knowledge and share the experience of what it is to live so close to nature, with the world, it is not for personal or financial gain, but to keep moving forward this community with which we believe we can help in healing the wound, we as humans have inflicted on the environment and hence on ourselves


 We do this in order to both carry and expand our knowledge to others and to share the experience of what it is to live here with us to the world, it is not for personal or financial gain but instead to keep moving forward this community with which we truly believe we would be able to help heal the wound we as a species have inflicted against the environment and hence against ourselves. 

The volunteer opportunities we offer, combine both first hand experience, along with a theoretical introductions into Organic farming, Bioconstruction and agroforestry. In addition, we organise a variety or tourist experiences, such as, trips into town and sightseeing, hikes, movie and games nights, horseback riding and others. Volunteers, can choose between short term, long term and group experiences. 

Here at Eco Caminhos we strive to bring about a positive change in the world and by doing so actually change the world and the life's of all the people and volunteers we come in contact with, both from our local community and abroad. 

 “If you assume that there is no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, then there is a possibility that you can contribute to making a better world.”― Noam Chomsky
