Projects in November includes: Harvesting vegetables and fruit. Making compost for no dig vegetable beds. Making firewood. Maintaining the gardens and social areas. Kitchen work. Repairing cob ovens for Pizza. Excercising the horses.

This is a 18 hectare organic farm where we produce mixed cereals and vegetables and also breed horses and donkeys, have a fruit orchard with old fruit varieties and we would like to create a synergic vegetable garden.
Our farm is a teaching farm,Every year more than 700 kids come to the farm to see the animals and to attend to our lesson.
In the near future we are going to open our farm vegetarian restaurant. We also have a small produce shop on the farm.
Situated within easy reach of Venezia, Padova & Treviso, the nearest bus stop is 1,5 kms and the train station 3 kms. We offer to give you a lift with our cars when needed. Other interesting sites include la Laguna, the remains of the ancient city of Altino, the walks along the river and a bird sanctuary. The farm is also the seat of an association which promotes organic cultivation and awareness.

Piergiorgio, Cristina, Matthias and Alessia live on the farm and runs the day by day works, There is also one helpers and others that come to the farm on a daily basis.

The farm buildings are still being renovated and accommodation is a small shared room with two beds or in a shared communal room where you can sleep in a sleeping bag. We also have several camper vans available at all times.

Help is needed in the vegetable garden, with wood cutting, fencing, with domestic jobs and preparing meals.

We ask your patience with the fact that we cannot always work alongside you. We are interested in the training of animals, their use in agriculture and Pet therapy. We are interested in construction using green methods, straw bales, clay and other natural materials and we are hoping to transform the farm into a social and teaching farm. Occasionally there are holiday / weekend programs for children on the farm.

We speak basic English, are vegetarian and non-smokers. Minimum time of stay is 2 weeks.

If you have read all the description you are very welcome to our farm. Please add to the first email the following sentence: "MI PIACE LA PASTA AL POMODORO" in this way we can understand that you read everything and you are really interested in coming to help us develop our farm.
