We are an italian/tunisian couple that has moved to Tunisia from Italy two years ago. We run a farm with animals about forty km west from Tunis toward Algeria. We have chickens, sheeps, cats and dogs. We are also planting trees and vegetables around the house.
We have many project to fulfill and a lot still to imagine. We are looking for help and cultural exchange. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing following the rithms of the country and the seasons.
DIY and building projects
We will provide a friendly environment where we can share experiences and growth in the knowledge of the country life togheter. However your privacy will be guaranteed in that you have your own room and a lot of outside space (that you can contribute to make ever more usable and confortable).
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The volunteers are expected to contribute to the everyday work with 5 hours a day, 5 days a week but we can agree for some days off to visit the country. We are very flexible in the work because the priority is to live in peace with the environment and people.
Particular skills are appreciated but not necessary. The willingness to do the best, as if the farm is its own it is enough. We have also a rented field to plant forage, so depending of the period, you can be requested to help in this task.
Depending on the period, you may be asked to graze the sheep and spend the night with them in the field.
Private room for a single or a couple. A shared bathroom with shower. You can also have a tend in the courtyard if you prefer. Wifi available. We provide food and share the kitchen, you can share the meals with us or cook your own.
The house is in a village in an important archeological and agricutural area. There are roman open-air archeological sites.
