Hallo,I am Sofia ( 39) and I own a small farm of healing plants. I am italian and exactly in Vermiglio - up in the mountain.
I grow flowers like marigold, malve, achillea, cornflowers and some more, and I use them for making natural cosmetics, tisane, flower juice and so on.
I need help from a couple for about 4-5 hours a day and the rest is free for hiking on the mountain, sightseeing of the nature and relax and peace. My mother helps me with the flowers and stays also with my guests ( hoping that somebody that speaks also italian is available)
I work in a village away from my house and I come home about every week. The experience with the flowers consists in picking the flowers every day, dry them in special drawers and store them in a paper bag. It's quite easy and interesting expecially for the fact that they are brought in the laboratory for making many things like: pasta with flowers, flower juice, tisane, cosmetics , flower's sweets and so on.
This experience is good for those who likes to stay in the nature, and relax with flowers color, perfume and fresh air of the mountain.
in 2013 Wendy from Kenya helped me 3 months, in 2014 Jeff and Sharleen from Australia helped me 2 months and Laura from Pennsylvania 1 2015 a very nice couple from Portugal helped me for the whole summer :-)
2016 a couple from Minneapolis

I appreciate a couple who can stay for the whole summer fro 20th of june till 20th of september
ciao ciao Sofi
