Hi there, my name is Federica and I am 35. I am from lake Como and I have been travelling around the world for work. I studied philosophy and gastronomy. I did visit a lot of farms and food productions and I would like to reproduce some of the amazing projects I saw in my cottage in the woods, fifteen minutes driving from Dervio, a small village on Lake Como. I am trying to renew it. The house is fully equipped and set to live in it. There are three bedrooms, a toilet, a small kitchen, a dining room and a living room. The garden and the fields outside are to be organized and the garden production improved. There are two bee hives, a few blueberry, raspberry and redcurrant trees. There are also chestnut trees and some other wild fruit plants. My father used to live there and he also had some hens. At the moment, I am in the process to move in there myself. I am alone though and not easy to manage all the work on my own. I need helpers to give me a hand with heavy jobs such as chopping woods, preparing the land to plant veggies, managing the garden... I would also like to improve the whole aspect of the place so any idea is very welcome. Just to give an example one extra-ordinary task to start with is to create the path to the house and make it visible and pleasant.
There is a 5 minutes walking distance from the street to the house. At the moment I cannot get to the house by car.
It's a complex project that on the long run will also include hospitality, food trasformation and distribution. For now I just need to make it run and function well.
I will need help a couple of weeks in May, August and from October on.
After that I am going to need help in October, after the 7th.
Thanks a lot for your help :-)
