Short-Term Volunteering

Short-term volunteering at Eco Caminhos is an excellent way to gain practical skills & experience in eco-farming, bioconstruction & permaculture. Located in the scenic Brazilian mountains, you will work and live with people from all around the world. Living in a rustic setting, you will have the opportunity to make life-long friends and learn the portuguese language whilst you do so.


What will your average day be like?


the schedule is indicative. changes might occure.

 Volunteers will work approximately 24 hours 3 days a week. tuesday and thursday's are off.  Volunteers can choose between bioconstruction and organic farming. After your work day and on your weekends, you are free to do as you please. Many of our volunteers plan their weekends to explore Nova Friburgo or Rio de Janeiro.

Once a week the people of Eco Caminhos unite in the evening to socialize. We usually cook together or make a fire outside. However all suggestions are wellcome. What matters is that we spend time together.
