  • Beschreibung


    We (Annelien-38 and Eric-44) are a Dutch couple who moved to Sardinia in january 2023. We fell in love with the nature, the people, the food, and eventually: with a 8 hectare property that we now call our home. We are in the north of Sardinia, the province of Gallura, where the ocean meets the beautiful oak woods and the granite rocks. Our land is half forest, half fields. On the fields we plan to create a food forest, vinyard and aromatic garden following permaculture practices. Annelien is a scientist (pharmacy/biology), teacher and excellent baker. Eric is a professional carpenter and has always had a business in ecological plastering. In 2022 we have travelled southern Europe and worked at several workaway projects ourselves to learn, get inspired and find our own mission. We have lots of inspiration, energy and talents to share, and are looking forward to welcome and learn from yours!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    As we are currently in the starting phase of our project you can learn anything that comes along with that process. Designing our agricultural plan, preparing the soil according to permaculture practices, etc. As Eric is a professional in construction and has build 3 houses so far, you can learn a lot of stuff from him depending on the length of your stay (during short stays we only offer garden/forest work). We both enjoy cooking/baking and we would love to swap recipes and eat as many yummy and culturally diverse cuisines as possible. I’m sure you will pick up some of our Dutch roots and habits, I leave it up to you to tell us about that ;).

  • Arbeit


    *relevant for May - October: currently we are full with workawayers for the next couple months to help out with 90% of the land care work described below. Only if you are (semi)professional in construction we might be able to host*

    It is good to realize that we just started with our adventure, therefore 2023 will be the year of organizing, land clearing, and building outdoor facilities such as the compost toilet, woodshed, carshelter, fencing, etc. As long as you enjoy working outdoors and are not afraid to battle the bushes, we welcome you! We have 5 hectares of beautiful forest in which we are currently making footpaths and freeing up overgrown trees. We are very well equiped with all sorts of tools, to make the work as efficient and enjoyable as possible. Specific jobs that you can do ~80% of the time: removing bushes and tree branches, selecting/preparing and chopping wood for the stoves, and mulching tree branches. In March 2024 we will plant ~50 trees and ~3500 aromatic plants; that should be lots of fun as well!

    If you have specific skills in construction or other passions which you think are beneficial for us, please let us know in your application such that we can make your stay as fullfilling as possible for all of us. In case you are a good photographer and/or website designer, we would love to get your help with that as well!

    We work on the land in the mornings between 8-13, 5 days a week. We will have lunch together, and we will make sure you have the basics for breakfast/diner (coffee/cookies/pasta/rice/etc). During weekend days we do not provide any meals. We find it important to communicate clearly about the type of work that will be available, therefore we will schedule a call ~1 week in advance of your stay to manage expectations.

    Important: please only apply if you are truly interested and self motivated to work with us. We are building up a farm and business, and the work is serious and at times physically demanding. We only accept volunteers that are committed to work with us and will keep a positive attitude during the work hours.

    Sardinia is a beautiful island full of ancient traditions and people from all over the world. We are located between the coast (15 min), Luogosanto (15 min) and Santa Theresa (20 min), which will give you access to historical sights, bushes as well as the magnificant coastline. If surfing or rock climbing is your thing; you are at the right spot. It would be best if you have your own transport/car, if you want to be independent outside of your working hours. We have an electric bike available that you can use which will easily get you to our village with shops as well as the beach.
