We are a community project focused on a place: a countryside in Oria, in Apulia region, in the south of Italy, will become for a summer month a space of sharing and participation.
We offer free hospitality in exchange of an active participation, which means taking care and getting involved in the activities of this place.
Joining this project means being happy to make activities together. Whatever is your skill, you can do and share it here with other people as a temporary common experience.
This is an opportunity for truly discover the Salento region; visiting places, being in touch with the locals, doing daily activities together with them.
This is a place where you can create something.
Imagine something, an object, a performance, an idea, anything you would like to do; now, imagine a place where people can help you to make it real, sharing with you their knowledge, experiences and abilities.

In 2014 we will focus our attention on biologique agriculture, green building and cooking lab.
We are looking for people with manual skills and good will. We are planning to make a beautiful event about sustainability in the city, making urban gardens and some funny activities. We want to promote an alternative lifestyle using green energy, saving water and resources deeply in contact with nature. That's why we are going to build together compost toilets, install solar panel for the energy, ricover an old construction to make a lab, build a mongolian tent (yurta) and take care of the farmed fields. To join us you must be very flexible and adapt yourself to a lifestyle without modern comfort but deeply into the nature.
