  • Description


    ***Please, we need last minute help from someone really interested in meeting us***
    ***If you are in italy and don't have a place to stay feel free to contact us***
    ***Read our feedback :)***
    We are Alberto and Jennifer a couple from Italy and Cuba who practice yoga and cook in a healthy way.
    Jennifer is a sociologist, she performs thai yoga massage and latin american dances; Alberto is a tour guide, ayurvedic nutrition expert and wannabe permaculturer. We try to improve every day what we have around us and enjoy the fruits of the earth through 8 small permaculture beds we builded in our garden (300 sqm area) in Abruzzo. During the winter we often visit our friends in Rome where we sell our products and practice ayurvedic cousine.

    We both need help to improve our winter vegetable garden and also our web marketing that is very poor.
    We're looking for someone strong, not picky, who likes to eat and cook natural food (also wild plants), interested in ayurvedic nutrition, simple living, yoga, visual art, who wants to make natural products from greens plus work with handicrafts, carpentry, construction ... creating, repairing, recycling and reusing anything ;)

  • Accommodation


    You will sleep alone in the camper using a spartan toilet and kitchen in the building or eventually if we are many (i.e. not at home) you will sleep on a mattress / sofa.
    It's better if you bring your sleeping bag!

    We usually eat all together but sometimes you''ll cook and eat on your own.
    We offer vegetarian / vegan ingredients, trying to avoid industrial food. Beside our own production, we barter or buy fruits and vegetables from organic farmers nearby.
