  • Description


    ***Ready to host Ukrainian people***

    ***If you are an Ukrainian traveller feel free to contact us for more info. We have the intention to create -STARTING FROM MAY- a temporary self-sustainable and self-organized community of resilience composed of people from Ukraine***

    ***in this case Last minute means I need you around the 15th of may. Someone who really needs urgently a place to stay***

    We are Alberto -tour guide, ayurvedic nutrition expert, holistic practitioner, educator and permaculturer- and Homero -musician, photographer, zodiac & i-ching expert, exhibit organizer- fraternal friends with italian and latinoamerican ancestors.

    We are in a period of transition. and our projects are also in flux.
    For periods we will be together in Abruzzo where we have a 300 sqm garden with some small permaculture beds. We've been away for almost a year so the work in the garden is a lot!
    Our place is not in the middle of the countryside, it's more an outpost of natural and holistic practices bordering a commercial and industrial zone. Which is an added value to the activities we do. We often go exploring natural places around (Abruzzo is full of parks) but if you want to be immersed in nature in a farm, this is not exactly the place for you.
    At other times we'll be visiting other ecovillage friends in Lazio / Abruzzo, or we'll be in Rome where we have other art activities going on.

    Alberto is often busy giving therapies as wellness counselor while Homero plays a lot with his band.
    We need help to improve our summer vegetable garden and also our web marketing that is very poor.
    We're looking for someone indipendent, strong, not picky, who likes to eat and cook natural and healthy food (also wild plants), interested in ayurvedic nutrition, simple living, yoga, arts, who wants to work with handicrafts, carpentry, construction ... creating, repairing, recycling and reusing anything ;)
