  • Description


    We need help to improve our winter vegetable garden including a cultivation of aromatic plants for natural cosmetics production.

    We are Alberto and Jennifer, recently married couple from Italy and Cuba who live in a healthy way, practicing yoga and meditation.
    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. We builded 7 permaculture beds in our garden (300 sqm area).

    We're looking for someone strong, not picky, who likes natural food (also wild plants), a wise sapiens who is interested in 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 ;)

    You will sleep alone in the camper using a spartan toilet and kitchen in the building, and yes, 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 healthy meals trying to avoid industrial food. Beside our own production, we barter or buy fruits and vegetables from organic farmers nearby.
