    Beschreibung

    We are a family based in Fontane Bianche, near Siracusa, east Sicily. Our location is wonderful, being very near to many beautiful nature places, such as Monti Iblei, Cava Grande, Vendicari, Pantalica and also many nice towns such as Siracusa, Noto, Modica, etc.

    In our farm we grow ornamental plants, mainly succulents and exotic plants. We are very near to the sea, just a couple of minutes walking! And within the farm there is a beautiful Botanical Garden where we are starting to host visitors. There are also 2 geodesic domes, one is 14m diameter and has a nice wood.

    The main occupation of our family is horticulture. Pietro works in the farm every day. We take care of our 3 children (two daughters of 5 and 10 years and a little baby boy of 1.5). Helena has a design studio within the farm and dedicates to print natural fabrics.
    *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️
    We propose two main projects for workawayers:

    -One is to grow a vegetable garden for the family and for the guests in an organic plot. This includes preparing the land and planting and managing vegetables as well as fruit trees and officinal plants. The profile of the worker is someone that likes to be outdoors and enjoys physical work in the garden.

    -The other one is general home management. This is a very wide window which includes children care, cooking, home repairs and maintenance. The profile is someone that has got good manual skills and also moves well in a house and likes children. A bit of Italian or Spanish is needed to communicate with them; they speak a little English but would be nice for them to learn more.

    Also if you have skills with music, singing and musical instruments let us know. We like to play sometimes.

    Pietro and Helena

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We love cultural exchanges and we are open to share.
    I am Italian and my wife is Spanish. You will be welcome in a large family including children and grandparents. We speak Spanish and Italian as well as English.

    You will be surrounded by agricultural activities and you will not have enough hours in a day to learn so much about plants and people. And of course our children will show you many things.... ;)
    Moreover, if you are keen in music, we could offer some general exchange and some basic Indian tabla lessons.

    Sicily is a reservoir of culture, and just by walking through Siracusa and its surroundings you will meet thousands years of history and the strangest of human characters.
    You already know how rich is food culture in the mediterranean, so be ready.

    Arbeit

    *️️️️️️️️️️️We need help to arrange and manage a large vegetable garden. We want to create more sustainability and more quality food. More in details this means agricultural tasks such as caring for the orchard, planting, weeding, cleaning, watering, harvesting, etc.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️Other type of help needed might be sharing time and project with children, cooking and general house maintenance. We need someone in the mornings, from 9-14. Help them in the morning to get ready, put some order in their room and take them to the sea down the house for a couple of hours, then come back and shower them, and help to get ready for lunch.

    As a workawayer you would be expected to have a certain independency. You might have to deal with the tasks by yourselves; and you will have to cook by yourselves. We will provided a full-equip apartment inside the farm for you. We share our fresh veggies from the garden with you as well as eggs, papaya and other organic things that we grow. We also enjoy having food together a couple of times per week.
