Our goal is to maintain and protect the ancient garden with 1000 year old plants and trees and at the same time produce vegetables and fruit in a time honored, eco-friendly manner. The 9 hectare garden contains olive groves, fruit trees and vegetable patches. Some of the things grown here are lemons, oranges, grapes, artichokes, zucchini as well as the local mirto berries and of course olives. The major part is vegetables.

We are currently three people working all year around with the garden; Giuseppe, who has two young children who love to help out during weekends, Enrico who is taking care of the cultural activities and Angela who is responsible for plant extracts, productions of oil, marmalade from lemons and orange, etc. The work we need help with is general upkeep of the gardens, like cutting grass, pruning bushes and trees, general improvements to the infrastructure (Outhouses, fences, trellises for the grapewines and supports for olive trees) and of course planting, harvesting and making the marmalades, oils, etc. Exact kind of work depends on the time of year.
