born in sicily, geologe , married to a german physiotherapist, father of 3kids, my passion to nature became a hobby and now a job, growing almonds and capers - high quality food in two of the most beautiful corners of Sicily, until now it is almost just me while my wife is staying with our three kids but i cannot make it anymore on my own.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
besides the manual work i'm a very openminded person and i love to share my big knowledge specially about Sicily's history and attitudes .
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
the plants are getting bigger and i need some helpful hands above all for the harvest. first of all for the almonds between approx the 5 until 25 of agost,. you need to love the heat, getting up early and be willing to move because beating the almonds down the trees with long bamboo sticks and then carrying boxes from here to there is quite an exercise but you can than look forward for a nice swim or relax on our place. we're quite in an isolated but very panoramic place without public transfer but of course will bring you to the beach or so on in free moments.
on the almond plantation we have two little wooden wagons , one divided into bathroom and kitchen the other in 2 tiny bedrooms, one would be my room , one your's ..or you want to sleep in a tent which we have, that's fine as well
we will share 3 times a day meals together, we like to cook with 0 km organic ingredients, we are open to taste also other cultural food, for who loves and knows cooking.
as i said above i'm glad to help you to get to the beach and see a little bit of the region. in august also my family will be around and often some friends with the tent, we do pizza in our outside oven, cool off in the little swimming pool, with the 3 kids it doesn't get boring and might be also good to have some help . so i like to work quite hard and enjoy life at the same time.
