Among his friends he is known as “Jorge the king of the forest”.

After introductions, we headed towards the mountains of Paraty, on the Paraty x Cunha road, which follows the same direction as the indigenous trail that connected the interior with the coast and which was used by Europeans to explore the interior of the colony.

Know the Atlantic Forest and still feed on it?

How many plants did these indigenous people use for generations to feed themselves?

Do we still have the same species?

We believe that it is necessary to know to preserve, in this way, the place chosen for the activity can vary, but always along trails, within the Atlantic Forest.
