Region: TuscanyCasentino Valley in the north-east of Tuscany. 670 mt. ...forest, mountains, meadows, river, nature... We live on the outskirts of a small hamlet at an altitude of 700m in Vallesanta, near Saint Frances of Assisi’s monastery. We are an Italian/ Irish family with three children 19, 12 and 8 years old. It is a beautiful area and in summer the climate is perfect – not too hot but warm enough to swim in the fresh clean water of the rivers nearby (see photos). We do not have an agricultural or holiday farm, but are simply a family who needs a hand to realise our aim to improve the place and to live a simple and natural life based on self-sufficiency. We sell at markets and fairs, exchange work and cooperate with other families in the area – act locally think globally. We have woodland for firewood and chestnuts and one hectare of land around the house for a vegetable garden and orchard. We need help with the various everyday tasks, in the garden, with the wood and with improvements to the house. Our diet is vegetarian and mainly organic. We share the gardening with our neighbours, Italian-German couple and two children, 8 and 11 years old, so meals may be divided between the two families. We speak, obviously, Italian and English, and a little Spanish and our neighbour speaks German.
Region: CanilloWe are a single parental family, me (a man) in my early forties and my daughters (Lassa is 9 and 1/2 years, Nayele is 8 years). I work, I study no more, but researching. My daughters usually do some activities after school: ice skating, English, theater, to learn portuguese, singing, judo, ... Their school is in French as main language with Catalan as second language. The girls can speak Spanish, Catalan and French, somewhat in Portuguese. It would be interesting to teach them some English. I also can speak English, French and Portuguese.

We also keep ducks, cats and a dog. The house and production - We are also currently renovating a house in a nearby town, where we live a make our canned produce - we use so called "crowdfunding", where our customers give us money in advance to pay the equipment and renovation. The canning facility is already under operation so if you are a person interested in how to make strawberry jam with chocolate or squash-tomato-pepper chutney, then we are the right place. You will be accomodated in our house in a special volunteers veranda:-) or at the farm in a mobile home. Veranda can host two people and mobile home two-four people. Internet in house more or less available, trips to Prague (packing consumer boxes or just sightseeing), Kutna Hora (20 min by train, very nice UNESCO city) and Caslav possible.

We always welcome help of people willing to do some work - we are farmers and live off the farm so we work all the time.
