We're a rural regeneration project on 15 hectares of beautiful, lush organic land near Noto, SE Sicily. We work with locals, volunteers and migrants on projects including biochar and biomass transformation, plant regeneration, organic growing and eco-restoration. We're currently regenerating our carob, olive, almond and citrus orchards, plant new varieties and experiment with new markets and products, and recently began experimental Biochar production, collaborating with academic researchers. We don't have animals. The valley is off grid, powered by solar and spring water. Work will depend on season but typically includes: harvesting, gardening, pruning, painting, restoring, light construction etc. We enjoy helpers who take initiative and appreciate healthy outdoor work, meditation, yoga, silence, good food and living with a light footprint. We work 5 hour mornings with 2 days off over a week's stay. Helpers are welcome to join in yoga and meditation, walks, meetings, and any other activities going on during your stay.
