  • Description


    Hello! It’s Alex here! I’ve been volunteers in Spain, Portugal and Northern Italy, and after this, two years ago I've got my land. Since the first day we’ve been following the principles and the norms of Permaculture, which we fell in love with a few years ago, and which has profoundly affected my way of thinking and living.

    We plan to restrict, to the best of our ability, the use of cement or non-natural materials in the restoration of the old cottage house, in the gathering of rain water, and in the design of our fruit and vegetable allotment. These are only some amongst many ideas for our project.

    Our land is located 2km from the centre of Solarino, in the province of Siracusa. You can arrive by bus directly from Siracusa, Catania center and Catania Airport.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I like a lot exchanging with people. I eat meat, but very rarely and I'm very addicted regarding the quality of food

    I've have experience and skills in a variety of areas, including I.T and project management. I love reading and learning about ‘green’ building, soil regeneration, earthworm farming and beekeeping.

  • Accommodation


    Until we'll finish the hospitality area we will host our guests in our flat in the town of Solarino, in a room with a double sofabed, sharing the bathroom, kitchen and utility room with us. The accommodation is available to couples, too. Daily, we would travel to the field and often we will have the launch there

    We will cook, and eat together for lunch and dinner and we'll clean after it
