NEXT AVAILABILITY: February 2018!

CURRENT PROJECT:
- forest maintenance: some trees went down in recent strong wind days. Weeds and hedera now are growing upon them, and climb up on other living trees, smothering and suffocating them. The idea is to cut the follen trees in pieces, and eradicate hedera and weeds. So, in our forest new trees may grow up.

CURRENT TASK LIST:
- veg garden: digging, seeding, and generic maintenance
- forest maintenance (see above)
- gardening and land maintenance
- housekeeping

INTRODUCTION - All year
We have moved from Rome to a natural reserve in the countryside nearby, quite an isolated place, with birds and small animals (fox, falcon, owl, others), rich flora, fantastic weather, huge starry sky and gorgeous twilights. At the present time, Elena is starting a new activity in the north of Italy, and I live in a beautiful house built with natural and non toxic materials with sustainable power systems.

In our small property I use to grow... more inside

This is a beautiful property just 5km distant from the centre of Florence and 10 minutes walk to bus stop but we can also provide a bicycle. The villa was built in the 15th century. We have lawns and a lovely vegetable garden classified as historical and monumental , a couple of fields with olive groves, (about 85 plants) all in one hectare of flat land along the river Arno. We would like someone with some building and gardening skills. We are also about to do our olive harvest, it will only be a 3-4 days job, but help would be appriciated. in exchange of about 5 hours work per day we will offer a large furnished room looking out in the garden, wifi,breakfast and lunch.

Hi everyone,
I'm a belgian who has moved to Sicily, Italy. Since 2010 on a 5ha plot of land I'm putting back an abandoned farm in working order. Part of it lies next to a river, another part is a plain halfup the hill. Big part of the slope is terraced by dry-stone walls.
The land has never been transformed into a monoculture of species but has been build up logic. Near the river are the trees which are in need of more water like walnuts, citrus, loquats, kaki... also a small vegetable garden is here. Uphill are olives, almonds and carob trees. Scattered around are some apple, apricot, pear, pistachio, pomegranate, myrtle, mulberry etc.
By adding other species like avocado, white sapote, cherimoya, guava,... and experiment with permaculture guilds I am transforming this current situation into a food forest.

@@@ I do organic and natural methods of farming @@@ I grow up wheat, legumes and spelt with an old little caterpillar tractor. I take care of the land doing the natural way of farming, planting trees every year, and searching for the way to Permaculture. I caress the idea of self-sufficiency. I deal with an old olive tree grove, a joung fruit garden, and a little plenty new hazel tree grove and the wood.
I'm here with two friends with whom we are experiencing the cohousing. Each has its own private space.
We take care of a garden and a nice group of hens.
I do also a bit of rural hospitality hosting travellers and some tourist.
At the moment i'm looking for someone is willing to help with the olive harvest. It will be from 15 October to 15 November.

I enjoy living as a big family and wants you to be comfortable here.

I agree with long stay....

Mail me for any question or detail please.

I eat good simple food.

:) :) :)

We need help virtually year round. Longer stays (more than 2 weeks) are always preferred. We are looking for a couple of strong arms to dig a few trenches (around a foot deep) for our irrigation implant.

Fall and winter here are the most prosperous seasons of the year. A great deal of fruits ripe, starting with olives in November followed by avocados, feijoas, annonas and then all the citruses (satsumas, clementines, madarins, chinottos, lemons, oranges, tangelos, citrons, pummelos, grapefruits) but also pomegranates, guavas, hovenias, medlars, etc., etc. Some of them requires to be picked almost every day throughout all the season. This is the time when most plants embark in their slumber and thus the best time to prune.
