Project Overview

Serra Verde Project is an ambitious scheme to create a rural eco-lodge and education centre in the foothills of the Picos do Marumbi in Brazil. We aim to become self sufficient in energy production and organic food, as well as playing an active part in the local community. Only 6km from colonial Morretes and in the foothills of the impressive Picos do Marumbi, Serra Verde is situated in a great location. It currently has a small house, pupunha plantation, bananas, coffee and a fantastic river frontage, not to mention its own Atlantic rainforest reserve!

We intend to make this reserve accessible to local children and those with disabilities. Through our Friends of Serra Verde Rainforest Scheme we aim to be able to both extend the reserve & to make it accessible to those in wheelchairs.

Our education centre will promote the importance of preserving the Atlantic Rainforest as well as offering English lessons to locals. We aim to further develop this sustainable site to be a fabulous base for rock climbing, mountaineering, biking, hiking, soaking up the local culture or just kicking back and enjoying a caipirinha by the river!
