Many years ago we travelled in Germany, Australia, Spain and Italy and worked in exchange for food, accommodation and a good time. Now we want to give back this amazing opportunity to the next generation.
My partner and I were born in 1978 and we live in a beautiful, rural part of Trentino, in the Reserve of Adamello Brenta National Park surrounded by stunning mountains.
On our little farm we grow vegetables, Saffron, Honey and (near to Garda Lake) Olive Oil. We have three kids (born 2002, 2004 and 2007) and our Family is very easy going. We like to eat well and healthy, so for 14 years we have produced a lot of our own food. Now we are starting to also produce food for other people in our village and if you would like to help, you are absolutely welcome!!
Most of our help is in the outdoors and changes everyday so you definitely won't get bored. The tasks are varied and includes: planting, growing and harvesting vegetables, chopping wood, growing olives, building with stones and wood, cooking and taking care of the house. We are also looking for musicians who want to teach piano and guitar to our children.
The main requirement is the smile, a big sense of humor (we love so much laugh), the pride in getting your hands dirty and the desire to live together with our crazy family!!
They can learn organic agriculture, good italian cooking (including the pizza in the fire oven) and experience living in the wild (with a few home comforts!), in a place where it is really easy to meet a bear.
We share our lifestyle with our volunteers and we love to spend also most of the free time together with them. Have good time, crazy joke and a lot of fun is our goal: we love laugh a lot. Come in our family is not reccomand to people who looking only for a "food and accomodation" in change of some hours of work...Our best experience its happened with people who join with our world and become part of our family!!!
Italian, German, English
All the space in our house is available. The volunteers have their own bathroom and they can use the washing machine. The bedroom is really unique, it's a house in a tree!! Everyone who's stayed there loves it! The place is dry and safe from the bear ;) We recommend a good sleeping bag because sometimes (also in summer) it can be cold.
Our area is famous for sport tourism because it is near everything! The Dolomite Mountains, the Lake of Molveno and Garda Lake are the main attractions and are close by and easy to reach. Our district is recommended especially for climbers, base jumpers and the mountainbike riders, but suits anyone who loves the great outdoors.
