My name is Casey, co-founder of Associação Cultural Choki Açores, and I would like to thank you for your interest in helping support the community through sustainable means and beautify the island of Flores.
In addition to the information below, I encourage you to check out our website to get a sense of who we are as a community and the values that are so important here in Flores. The island of Flores is one of the world’s greatest environmental treasures, filled with a vibrant community, alive with intellectual energy and dedication of its members. We are looking for active participants that represent the integrity of the pristine nature of the island and the spirit of its people. Our invitation is to outstanding individuals to join a remarkable community of artists, intellectuals, and a culture deeply committed to nature and expanding the boundaries of human knowledge and understanding. Flores is a place that will shape by your presence as you form and test your own ideas, learn from peers, and expand your intellectual horizons while perfecting your passion.
With this being said, within the farm and community gardens we encourage creativity and imagination of all projects that can inspire others for the long term and personal growth.
The foundation of the gardens is located just outside of Santa Cruz das Flores in a valley of gardens and waterfalls. For accommodation there are platforms for tents in the most beautiful areas of the garden with a common area of a kitchen and amenities including wifi. The coastal location is located in the best microclimate of the island of Alagoa, where the first settlers of Flores lived consisting of 300 year old orange trees with limited amenities. Excluding our gardens there could also be projects or needs of the community if you are interested and transportation to other locations would be provided - beautify the island.
Join us in unparalleled beauty with individuals of outstanding ability and creativity, focused on becoming the best of themselves for the benefit of others.
