    Hello! We are Mirko and Giulia, two young farmers passionate about nature and agriculture.
    We just started our own business in producing tropical fruits on the hills of Bergamo, in a beautiful location near City Center. We practice organic agriculture, permaculture, we are starting a nursery and have a small vegetable garden near home. We love sharing work outside with plants but also bringing friends to concerts, playing music, cooking and hiking.

Also, volunteers will learn tips about how to start and develop a new business!

    Workawayers are hosted in Giulia's family house, a big typical "villa" on the hills near the farm, with a huge garden and a pool available in summertime. A personal room is provided, bathroom is instead shared with Giulia. Kitchen and living room are shared with the rest of the family, as well as cooking, eating and cleaning after meals. We have many dogs that are very nice and welcoming :)
    Volunteers go to the farm and back home by car with Giulia.

    When helping hours are done, volunteers are free to explore Bergamo Hills natural park and the beautiful Medieval upper town. There are so many interesting squares and buildings and art galleries you can get lost! Milan is one hour by train, so on free days you can have a tour of the city, or again by train you can easily reach lake Iseo, lake Garda and Venezia as well.
    In weekends, volunteers can join Giulia, Mirko and friends at concerts, theatre, parties, cinema and music-arts festivals years round. We love sharing culture and music! Sometimes we are too tired, but volunteers are free to go out whenever the like and we can provide information about interesting happenings in the area :)
