Have you done any organic farming before? What kind of organic farming skills do you have?
I graduated in agronomic engineering two years ago and during all my graduation I developed works in the area of agroecology and rural extension. Currently I work in a state government program within the State University of Londrina that seeks to bring organic certification to small producers. Not only the State University of Londrina but also other universities of the state of Paraná participate in the program. The activities developed by us technicians who participate in the program are technical assistance and adequacy of the area for certification, and inspections of organic production areas.

A little about myself

Hello everyone.
For me it is a pleasure to be able to participate in a program that allows me to deepen my knowledge about sustainable agriculture.
I am an Agronomist and my wife is a Veterinarian. We are grateful to work in areas that provide us with the environment and allow us to contribute to its sustainability.
Currently I work at the State University of Londrina in a program of the State Government of Paraná that seeks to take to the small rural producers free organic certification. In the program, we work as auditors and technical assistants. It is a pleasure for me to be able to work together with producers who see agriculture differently. People who seek to produce their food in a way that is harmonic to the environment, without the use of agrochemicals and without environmental impacts.
In the same way that I am passionate about working with the producers of my country, I will be passionate about working with the host who welcomes us to his property.
My goals with the wwoof program is to know more about organic farming practiced in the world and the culture of each place. So that when I return to my country, I can bring together a bag of knowledge that will allow me to contribute with new agricultural techniques, humanism, character and ethics, because I am sure that these are things that I will learn a lot on this journey.
