We are Nick, Jenny (36-37 yrs old) and little Diego (2 months old). We started our permaculture project 7 years ago here in the north of Tuscany after travelling abroad for a few years. We live in a tiny but comfortable cob house (one of the very few italian cob houses) in the bottom of a small unhabited valley 6 km away from Palazzuolo sul Senio, a small medieval village.
We try to live in the most sustainable and self-sufficient way raising our own animals (chicken, pigs, working dogs) and taking care of the veggie garden but also hunting, gathering, conserving what nature freely provides and turning into a resource what society wastes.
Our activities include also managing the creek and the forest for water, wood and wild food sources improvement, restoring centuries old abandoned chestnut orchards, digging ponds and create small wetlands.
We eat simple, and we love cooking.
We speak fluent english, spanish and a bit of french.
We'll be happy to host 2 people or a small family in a wooden house complete with all comforts except internet connection (that is available in the cob house anyway)
In summer there's plenty of space to camp, cook and live outside.
This october 2019 we'll be busy picking chestnuts so this will be the main task to do, a very simple job in a priceless environment.
