A beautifully situated hill farm in the wooded Umbrian Appenines.

Work consists of clearing land, wood-splitting and stacking, kindling bundling, garden preparation, rock-walling, fencing, caring for horse and donkey, gardening, depending on season.

I'm converting the 400 year old farmhouse to as eco as possible, have 2.3KW photovoltaic and solar hot water, working on solar thermal addition and grey water separation.
Also setting up a yurt hospitality biz, plenty to do...
A love for listening and/or playing music will be a great advantage! Use of baby grand piano, drums, PA, mandolin, cello, bass, guitars and percussion. Recording facilities available.
Vegetarian household, big veggie garden.
The arrangement consists of 4 hours a day of work in exchange for board and lodging, 2 if donations are made towards food. Sundays off. Cleaning up after yourself doesn't count as work hours!

Skills especially appreciated: carpentry, masonry, plumbing, electrics, gardener, equine enthusiasts, website builder (mac, wordpress), and anything to do with home music studio, sound engineer, techie, luthier.

A sense of fun and love for animals are essential!

Last year was a great year. We had a blast and got a lot done. This year I will be open for guests from mid april on, so book in your time now. I look forward to meeting this year's crop of helpers, and working and playing together.

Singer-songwriters/Composers/Players especially welcome!
