  • Description


    100% organic ecovillage project!!!
    Read all before ask any question. Read all before ask to come to join.

    Hy everybody, I am max (25) and I live in Tuscany ( ITALY) in a very untouched green valley ( in fact it's called Val Verde) from september 2020.
    I am creating an organic ecovillage project, designed through PERMACULTURE .
    The project it's in the middle of the nature , surrounded by forest, rivers and tranquility.

    What I can offer is to teach about permaculture , regenerative agricolture, beekeeping , chicken and geese breeding.

    Actually there is no electricity ( I have a generator and soon solar panels) , water comes from the mountain , there is 1 toilet with hot water and shower ( inside the woodenhouse) and 1 compost toilet , easy road access with 3 km of gravel road .

    what I ask to the workawayers:

    - Name and surname and copy of 1 I.D. (Identification document- just for self guardianship)

    - help in daily activities


    -no hypocondriacs

    -no lazy people

    - generally no dogs ( I have one and could be not friendly with others)

    -no van/camper

    -yes happy people

    -yes eco-friendly people

    -1 person, maximum 2 workawayers

    -minimum 5 days of permanence . If you would like to stay more than 7 days , we will talk about it directly on site

    -better if you have your own vehicle to come here ( car. Bike, motorbike)

    If you like all this , please write me an email or message ( whatsapp, fb , sms) with :

    -your description

    -what are you looking for?

    -what do you expect that a project like this could you give?

    -what kind of help could you offer to a project like this?

    -why would you choose this project instead of another?

    -when would you like to come ?

    Hope to see you soon!!
