Description

I am living a new experience within nature and the simplicity of life.

we live a simple but healthy life, not too much stress and very relaxed flexible in all we do , our clock is the weather or the daylight.

We have a small olive grove close to a typical town (600 metres away) , here there is a small house and lots of free space, you could do some olive trimming and general maintanace , could be that some time you will be left to have some free time and enjoy the local life style.

Exchange thoughts, ideas and we will all learn something new.

We teach you to get away from the rat race and learn...we can cater for many peoples needs, no racisim or discrimination allowed

Course are available for specific needs, as i am living off what i can make from my own back i would ask you to participate with basic food costs........this will include organic everything , natural non supermarket foods...wine is only to be drunk in moderation LOL .....
i am sure that your experience will benefit you for many years , i am not a workaholic but place people before all

I AM PLANNING TO ORGANISE A CULTURAL CENTRE FOR ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE TO EXCHANGE EXPERIENCES AND HELP PROMOTE THE AREA

we will be using our own currency in a micro economy, its fun and unique for the area.

also due to many people who say they will come and then do not , i will ask for a 10 euro deposit which you will get back when you arrive.

I CANNOT PROMISE A ROOM BUT THERE IS LOTS OF SPACE IN OUR PALIARI typical eco buildins like huts

Help

We dont have a set work schedule as its rather a small place, but there is always something that needs fixing or keeping the garden from overtaking everything.

most is all experimental using simple traditional ways, no theory but practical..... its working so i want to carry on......

We eat simply, wholesome food, lots of it fresh picked in the garden or around the area.

We cater for vegetarians and respect all other too.

IT SEEMS THAT LATELY SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN BOOK AND THEN NEVER TURN UP WITHOUT EVEN GIVING NOTICE, IF YOU ARE ONE OF THESE PLEASE DONT BOTHER, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE SPOILING SOMEONE ELSE'S CHANCE AND SOONER OR LATER IT WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU TOO ---- FROM NOW I WILL LEAVE VERY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK TO THESE IDIOTS

Languages spoken

sicilian, italian, english. and yours if you can comunicate

Accommodation

Accomodation is basic but clean, we are living in natural surrounding,

wifi access if free, as long as you dont want to sit at it all day

above all people are very important , this includes you...



What else ...

We try and be fair , some days maybe we need to finish and you will be asked to do a little extra, but then it will balance with the days we might have a rest.

Please be flexible and i am sure we will get along well.

Should you be the type of person who wants a schedule to work to this we can arrange when we meet.

All work is non professional and you can share your opinion on things

We are able to teach you many things from gardening to cooking to language too many to mention, we practise our traditions as much as possible.

in general we are very relaxed and enjoy life and good company
