  • Description


    in the many years (12) that I have had the joy of hosting so many beautiful people from all over the world, I am convinced that we can really do something to improve ourselves and a little bit of the world around us, but there has to be a little effort in wanting to do so strongly.
    the people I host, especially the younger ones, should be able to understand that resources in general are a precious commodity that must be protected and not over-exploited in a predatory manner.
    therefore water should be used sparingly first of all, especially hot water that uses too much energy.
    so showers must be short and sufficient for everyone.
    the places we inhabit alone or in common should be kept clean and tidy. in addition to resources, this also saves time that has to be spent on laborious, extraordinary cleaning work when it only takes a few minutes a day.
    I therefore expect the bathroom, kitchen, outside of the house and bedrooms to be kept very clean on a daily basis.
    the food that the great mother earth gives us is an asset to be respected.
    in group work it is necessary to foster the development of a peaceful atmosphere, to instil trust, joy and well-being in the living environment. work becomes lighter, more fun is had and a happy coexistence is established.
    please read carefully. I would like to be sure that the people who write to me and wish to share their time with me and work with me this land given to me by my grandfather are truly aware that the environment around us and the emotions within us are invaluable wealth.
    I run a small farm in the south of Italy, the place is an archeological site, Telesia , city of Sanniti first and Romans after...there are many sites to be visited around and the village is very close, small and cute. The train station is in the nearest village Telese-Cerreto and it's easy to plan a trip to Benevento, Caserta or Naples. I live alone, I have a son 22 years old that lives in London. I speak english and a bit of spanish. The farm produces many vegetables, fruits, wine, flour and I make, weekly, bread. I have chickens and hens. We work usually in the garden: weeding, watering and planting vegetables and we prune our fruits plants and make wood. The house has been built from my grandfather and needs some work now and then. We usually work together in the house keeping it clean. We harvest our product and time by time we make preserves. In fall we harvest grape and make wine and we harvest olives to make our olive oil. We go to markets to sell our products making extra bread and cooking the day before.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Working in the farm gives special knoledge to independence about selfproducing food in a special environment where everything is produced in organic way with a big rispect for the earth. The soil is fantastic, I make my compost which i use for plants and seeds. Permaculture is the method of cultivation. We will be giving italian lesson if asked and teaching how to make bread, pizza and fresh pasta. I have a nice studio with lots of books in different languages and the house has wifi.
