    Hi Workawayers!

    My name is Pietro, I am 54 years old and live on my organic farm with 6 dogs located in the Province of Siracusa, approximately 15km from Catania Airport. On 104 hectares I am currently producing rice, legumes (lentils, chick peas, grass peas), olive oil and oranges for direct sales. I also produce a diversity of fruits and vegetables for our own fresh consumption.


    I'll provide food and shelter for everyone who is willing to give a hand and look forward to meeting people and get to know their cultures while they can get to know our own.
    My first language is Italian, and although I will be happy to improve on my English, I am not (yet) able to speak it very well (I've had some help with my profile). I will try to understand as much as possible and I'm sure we will get along in communicating with each other, using translation devices if needed.

    Urgently needed: we need people for harvesting olives and oranges!! From 15 october to the 30th of December.

    IMPORTANT: if you are interested to come, please write your arrival and departure dates in the message title.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Workawayers have the chance to learn about and improve in orchard management practice. I am always happy to share some of my experience, so if wanted we'll find ourselves in exchange of knowledge on agriculture and alternative farming.
    Sicily is a beautiful region with a lot of interesting places and you will get a good glimpse on sicilian life and culture on the countryside!

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    Depending on the season and availability of produce, work will include

    - URGENT: all rounder with computing skills
    - harvest of olives and oranges and pruning of the respective trees
    - sorting, selection and cleansing of seeds (lentils, rice, etc.)
    - maintenance of fruit and vegetable garden which serves as the principle source of food
    - preparation of produce for sales and at times selling goods at the market.

    As living on a farm bears a lot of surprises this list is not intended to be exhaustive. :)

    Two houses on the farm serve as principal shelter. I live and sleep in one of them whereas the other contains the kitchen in which most of the indoor farm-life takes place. Here we cook our meals and use the space for selection and preparation of produced goods. It also comprises the (separate) room in which you will be staying. While being principally a single room, it will be shared with other workawayers if necessary. In general I am not likely to host more than two or three persons at the same time. The house includes wi-fi and hot water.
    Meals will be taken three times a day, breakfast more or less independently and lunch/dinner together. Flexibility has it that this might change at times, but there will always be enough food provided for you. Our food is consistently vegetarian (though we cook meat on rare occasions) while using our own produce as much as possible.

    We're in proximity of a train station and bus stop, however best reachibility is provided by car. The next towns are about 10km and Etna volcano 60km away as well as Siracusa (city). Catania center is 20km far. At times we will go there to do some additional shopping.
    On free days I can drop you off at cities or sights you want to visit or we can visit places together.
