  • Description


    Our farm is located in a mountain called Guardiabella, at 900 mt on the sea level, but 25 km from it. It's mountain but we can watch it from our windows. That's the reason why the clime is mild. We have many project going on togheder: permaculture garden, fruit grows, and strowbail house. We built a nice green house we use as porchwhere and where we spend a nice time with friends. lnside we have a owen , made with clay and where we bake every monday with flour that we mill. The water tank for the garden is became for us a nice swimming pool with a sea view.... In this quite place, sorrunded by forest and nature in the silent of the mountain live our family big : me(Ale38), Chiara(my wife35) 4 doughters( Naima,Luna,Nerea,Miriam) and 1 son(Rio). There is another copple that live very close to us with which we make bread togheder and friends that pass for a week or period to stay with us to work and enjoy the place. We have a progect of educational farm that we would like to realize but we need help. We would like to start even a democratic school for our last 3 kids and others that can be part of that. Every day there is always something to do in the garden, if is the season in the olive tree for the harvest.We need an help in the land where we leave but specially with our last kids 'cause are young _Nerea(5 years),Rio(3 years) and Miriam(7 months)_ and 'mamma Chiara' would be happy! Our child are full of energy and they like the life and every people who sarround them... They often meet new and stranger people 'cause we live in mountain but we never are alone!!!!!! We tried experience like wwooff host for three years and we found it well! but now we decided to try with workaway. Many friends talked good about it!

    The things you can do here are many: walk or run around for the mountain, ride a bike (if the volunteer came with a bike) or our horses they know how to ride a horse. The closed big town is about 12 km from here and you can ritch it by bus or we go down very often for the school and other things. Imperia, the big city in the cost is about 25 km, and you can ritch it by bus as well. We are at 1,5 hours from Genova and Torino, and 3,5 hours from Milano.
