    Beschreibung

    My name is Jordie, two years ago I returned to the central Italian countryside after almost 20 years away and abroad working as anthropologist, documentary filmmaker, reporter and transmedia author. After leaving the countryside at 18 I lived and studied in Rome, then left for the UK and during 18 years also lived shorter periods in Peru, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Madagascar, Cape Verde and Belgium.
    I grew up and spent up to high school here, in Ficulle, a little medieval town of 1600 inhabitants in the Umbrian hills.
    Italy can be a tough country to live in, especially in the current political climate, but I decided here is where I want to live a life geared towards quality, surrounded by nature, animals, organic homegrown food and so on.
    I took over a country house from my family and run an organic farm. We grow hazelnuts, spelt, truffles, olives, hemp, artichokes and much mores, we have a vegetable garden running all year round and many fruit trees. The place is surrounded by woodland and a river runs just hundred meters away. The house and surroundings are slowly shaping up, but being alone with just the help of a few friends once in a while, I am looking for a few people that want to spend the autumn here with me and give me a hand :-)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Here in Vallelibera I hope to share the cultural identity of these hills and valleys shaped by medieval city states in continuous war with each other, leaving a landscape dotted by castles and forts, walled towns sitting on cliffs and antique churches a bit everywhere. Squeezed among the Tuscany of Florence and the Lazio region of Rome, Umbria, dubbed the green heart of Italy, inherits the cultural and architectonic influence of the better know cities and the rolling hills famous in Tuscany, but in my opinion is more authentic in its agricultural traditions, customs and relationship with the land.
    I will share all my knowledge regarding living on the land and different elements can be learned depending on the season and the work that needs doing. Work can go from beekeeping to olive trees pruning, from tending the growing hemp to preparing limoncello, from collecting wild edible vegetables to cooking the best lasagna ever. Moreover I have a 15 years experience in the media environment, and although I have decided to take a break, I certainly can share a few tips.
    Having travelled and lived abroad for a long while I now fluently speak Italian, English, Spanish and German, my French is quite decent and I have some basics in Portuguese.

    I constantly need some help with a bit of everything, tending the vegetable garden and the animals, pruning, general maintenance, cooking and cleaning, gardening, chopping wood and get stones off the fields, welding, carpentry, photography and web design for some ideas I have in mind.
    Currently in September and October all our energies are put towards the harvest and conservation of all we grew during spring and summer and on preparing the fields for the next season.
    Living and working in the countryside often means to go with the seasons and the weather, what is happening here and what I would need help with depends on when workawayers are interested in visiting.
    Unfortunately I can only accept workawayers willing to stay for at least one month, it always takes time for everyone to adapt and I think shorter periods will not allow for the right time to have a fruitful exchange for both hosts and workawayers.

    Being in the countryside having a car is a plus, so you can be independent in your movements. If you have no car it is easy to get here by train to the Fabro-Ficulle train station, which is a 10 min drive from my place and I can easily pick you up. I can obviously drive you to town when you need.
