  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is a centuries-old organic farm in the inland hills of the middle Molise, along the banks of the Biferno River, halfway from the Adriatic Sea and the Matese mountains, where we often go hiking. The bioregion is made up of arable and arboreal pastures alternating with oak, hornbeam and ash woods, mainly.

    The integrated agroforestry system allows us to cultivate dozens of species of crops from herbaceous to arboreal, facilitated by a high biodiversity area, one of the highest in Europe.

    The potential volunteer aspirant can have a varied experience, from taking care of the garden to helping to build small green building structures, from working in the gardens to beekeeping, from attending to the management of no-till crops to the maintenance of forests, from turning fruit and vegetables in dehydrated or jam to planting arboreal plants.

    We also have relationships with other organic farms, universities, research centers for the biological improvement of no.till seeding technique, in particular the spreading seeding technique and also the sowing by burial with specific no-till seeder, we use cover crops and other specific equipment. Finally, the research concerns the strengthening of agroforestry systems in general and the sustainable use of forest resources. If you have specific skills in conservation agriculture and forest management, as well as simple enthusiasts in these sectors, we are looking for different collaborative figures and can make us useful for small professional growth ideas

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    There are lodgings in self-built wooden tiny houses up to filling places, but also functional and comfortable wooden platforms in the shade of the trees, for those who prefer to stay in tents. We are completing the works and therefore we need a pioneer spirit of adaptation, great responsibility and a great desire to learn new activities. Meals tend to be vegan from our cereals, legumes, oilseeds, fruit, vegetables, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, almonds, walnuts, etc. The nearby shepherd often cheers us with cheeses and sheep and goat ricottas.
