  • Description


    Hello, I am Karoline. I am hoping to find like-minded people who like to make the world a better place and come and help with the realization and design of a permaculture farm.

    Last year I was a Workawayer myself and now I actually have my own piece of land and house in Italy. I am 36 years old and from Germany, living here alone with my sweet dog "Wuschel".
    I am a very friendly open person. After university I lived 5 years in England doing arts and then did a lot of nature pedagogy with kids in Germany. Now project permaculture in Italy!
    I love to cook and learning the traditional way of Italian cooking for a while now.. I usually cook healthy and yummy with fresh vegetables. I am not vegetarian but it’s no problem to cook without meat or even vegan ..
    I love music and all musicians are especially welcome.
    The plan is to design a permaculture farm and a beautiful place that invites to be creative and live in harmony with nature.. I want to design a food forest.. build platforms for the tipi tents, organic toilets and showers, outdoor kitchen.. Gardening, creating compost, designing the whole property. This space should also give my visitors the opportunity to your own creative ideas into practice.. whatever it is ..
    Working in the morning until it gets to hot and in the evening a little more. Put on some music and have fun or enjoy the peace of nature .. In the evening sit cook & eat together the beautiful products of the garden.

    My vision is based on permaculture ethics (earth care, people care, future care), "to live in a way that is good for myself and all my relations and allows all others the same opportunities or better into the future".
    The land is set in beautiful countryside, 7000 m2, with 30 olive trees, some hazelnut trees and others etc.. There are two little houses. One is almost ready for me. The other one is an old stone house that has a room for you to sleep in (see pictures).

    The property is 7 minutes by car to Soriano nel Cimino, 20 minutes to Viterbo, 45 min to the beach. Soriano nel Cimino is a beautiful old town with restaurants, a castle, etc.. also there are volcanic lakes, the hot springs and beautiful walking trails.
