  • Description


    I'm Alberto, member of a community of friends in Abruzzo with an holistic vision of life.
    I run this project by myself but I often volunteer (and exchange help) with families in the area:
    workaway. info/workawayerprofile.html?w=traviajador

    I live in a healthy way, practicing yoga, meditation and following ayurveda routine. I try to improve every day what I have around me and enjoy the fruits of the earth.
    now I'm reclaiming from waste a 1000 sq m area at the edge of an industrial park, with the purpose of cultivating a small laurel forest.

    I'm 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 fruits, vegetables and medicinal plants plus work with handicrafts, carpentry, construction ... creating, repairing, recycling and reusing anything ;)

    in short my project is a downshifting laboratory where to learn lot of practical activities, how to take care of oneself, to live with less money and in a more sustainable way.
    I hope that who comes is interested in reducing stress, calming the mind, deepening the spiritual connection, being happy!

    in october-november all the family together collect olives. we receive from elderly trees the real gold of this planet: organic olive oil.
    I also need with my brother a mechanic or body shop mechanic (!) because we recently inherited a bunch of vintage cars to be reconditioned or transformed into pieces of art... so if you read this write me right away, you will be more than welcome ;)

    you will help around 25 hours per week - 2 days off, having the opportunity to organize your time alone or in my/our company to visit historical and amazing natural places around (beach - river - mountain).
