Volunteer accommodation is in a large house with four spacious rooms - each housing between two and six people. Double rooms may be available for a 20% extra charge. Each room has its own bathroom with shower and hot water, and there is one additional shower outside for use in hot weather. All bedding is provided and changed once weekly.
You may wish to bring a mosquito net if you are staying through the summer months.
A spacious indoor communal living area for studying, eating, etc. runs through the middle of the house and a verandah at the front of the building - with a barbeque - provides shelter from the sun.
Tap water comes directly from the Laguna. Food is brought weekly from the nearest town. Let us know is advance if you are vegetarian or have any other dietary requirements. The Laguna is also safe for swimming and fishing.
Help us cultivate our organic garden and with our waste recycling projects. The estate boasts a number of different types of fruit trees including lemons, oranges and guava. You can also sample the fruits of the cerrado in the summer time.
