    Hi Permies.

    I'm travelling to Southern Brasil next month, Garopaba, Santa Catarina province to do a yoga teacher training until mid April and after that I will be completly free, Ive just quit my job and am looking to get seriously into Permaculture (I took a PDC at the Panya Project last November) I was wondering if anybody on the forum knows of any long term volunteering or internships around Southern Brasil, Northern Argentina or Paraguay, the rest of South/Central America would also be an option too. I speak intermediate Spanish and would be more than willing to learn Portuguese.

    Thanks Guys8)

    Hola Rancho sol y mar,

    Todo esta bien aqui en Brasil. Discupla meu espanyol es un poco rusty, estou accustomado de falando portuguese agora. Melhor eu responder em Ingles.

    Ive been wwoofing on an organic coffee and banana farm (www.fafbrazil.com), while also doing a bit of bee keeping, cheese making and vegi garden, I actually met the owner on my yoga course in the south of Brasil. At the end of the month I go to Bahia in north east Brasil to wwoof on an organic cacao permaculture farm for a month until my visa expires (www.fazendapuravida.com) which im very excited about. After that I will probably go to Argentina as theres so many options for long term wwoofing there, I really want to stay in places around 3 months and learn everything I can so I can take the knowledge with me and be able to start projects from scratch, i'm choosing possible hosts carefully for the future, established farms where they need long term help specialising in something so I can really learn a lot in 1 subject rather than scratch the surface on lots of things but not knowing how to do them on my own.

    I checked out your website and the project looks great, maybe ill come by in the future.

    If anyone else knows of any good projects in Latin America let me know :)

    Peace Jacob
