Our project "capo vaticano autarkia" is active in 2 places around CAPO VATICANO. The centre is in joppolo directly at the seaside (a very beautiful fisher village),where we have two trailors standing near a friend's villa, and the other in San giorgio 4 miles inward from Briatico.(there the main production of fruits and veggies is taking place), in cooking everybody takes turns. Helpers usually arrive in Joppolo and after they worked themselves in the project are shown to the other places. Its mainly Avshalom's(57) project, a German (by now very Italian though) who spent a lot of time in cities, found that this is not where it's at, and is heading now sincerely towards self-sufficient agriculture, trying out his ideas in the area of capo vaticano. In joppolo and eswpecially san giorgio we have some land,but furtheron we try to grow natural gardens in the wilderness and preparing with the helpers' assistance to start out with experimental stuff like growing crops naturally near the river, building bamboo houses, making felt and other forgotten skills. We prefer to shave 2 or 3 workers at the same time to help in all these activities, preferring s.o. who likes to work in a team and is able to organize his work on his own. Children and other artists welcome (we have three year old Geronimo already on the farm). We take turns in cooking and give two free days in the week (not necessarily on weekends) Conditions can be altered if personally necessary. Sleeping fac.: trailors in Joppolo, two rooms in san giorgio. Working hours: like we do '(about 5 - 6 hours per day average. Next station: Joppolo. Next airport: Lamezia (40km) Languages: German, English, Italian
As this is a sincere ecological procect, we don"t have a car, nor a tractor, that means you might have to walk quite a bit.
