Hello there, I am 32 years old and I have studied chiropractic in Wales for 4 years, I speak English, French and Italian, two years ago I got back in Sicily and I came into possession of this amazing place.
The property is based in Sicily, on a promontory that faces the sea.
It is an historical family house with an amazing view and a almost a tropical micro-climate.
It is also possible to reach the beach by the stairs.
In the first year I have used to work alone to renovate the place, and making a permaculture "EDEN" garden in a piece of family land close to home, until I discovered Helpx whit wich I speeded up and bring to completion several projects. I have also had the opportunity thanks to HelpX to meet my splendid girlfriend.
We have built many ,MANY synergic gardens, a green house for the winter,planted several new tropical fruit trees (mango, avocado, melarosa....) and perennials.
I can accommodate 4 people in 2 apartments, ( couple would be perfect!) that have a kitchen and bathroom facilities, I don't need help in working for the whole week, weekends are free for who will come to help.
I finally have an internet connection in the living room that works also all around the terrace but unfortunately not in the apartments.
I am very flexible whit working hours, because I think that if everything is planned in advance, there are no reasons to take rush into things.
I love cooking and I'll be happy to cook for you at least one meal a day,until the weekend,(sometimes we will eat together during the weekend, sometimes not.) than I will provide you with organic food ( sometimes coming directly from my garden)to cook in your own.
I guarantee 2 meals a day.
I can accommodate people during the whole year, everything depends on the projects that we need to complete, NOW WE ARE LOOKING FOR 2 COUPLES ( OR 4 PEOPLE) IN THE PERIOD THAT GOES FROM THE 5TH OF SEPTEMBER UNTIL THE END OF THE MONTH, and we will need help in:
2)Maintenance of synergic beds and seedlings for the winter period.
3) Care for the chickens.
4)Pruning olive trees .
5) Share the qualities of this spectacular place with other people.
6)Start a project with crowdfunding.
This is a short-term cultural exchange.
We are also looking for people with some experience in pruning.
