  • Description


    My name is Antonio I'm 33 years hold. I graduated in agroecology in 2011. I was born in the countryside in my family farm that is bio since 1992. we breed sheep, vineyard, olives and cereals. Since 2009 I start a project of vegetable garden in intercropping with apple (ancient variety of center italy) and a vegetable garden in permaculture way (orto sinergico) for my and my family sef-support. Also in 2012 I start with a friend a project of natural wine production, for the moment we produce only for our consume and for some friends. I love to share experience, listen new stories and learn new language.
    I hope you will love our reality

    I can share to workawayers my experience on all the sectors of the farm: vegetable garden's tecniques of organic cultivation included soil management, parassites control and any other useful advice to create a vegetable garden that can be fertile, profitalbe and nature friendly. I can share the same advice on apple cultivation, pruining techniques, grafts, vineyard cultivation, wine production, olive cultivation, sheep breeding and other advice tipical from rural and farmers life style.
    At the same time I hope to learn from hosting visitors all that can they whant and can share to me I'm open mind and i love to listen stories included new cultivation tecniques but also music, cinema, books, yoga, meditation tecniques, travel, life adventure; and mostly I hope I can practice languages.

    I need help for self-support basically in the vegetable garden and with wine care (racking) and also I need special help with my new Donkey Flora. I need somebody that have experience with donkey. it isn't an hard work, but like all the jobs whit land it's a fisical work. I love this work and never weighed me. I think work whit nature is the better zen you can find.
