Hi, my name is Mario. I am a nature loving and travel experienced man who decided to escape from the crowded city to the volcano. My wife and I moved to Stromboli from Palermo 6 years ago. We started our soil regeneration project: we plant tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and zucchini.
This summer we are going to plant trees to make a barrier against salt that wind brings from the sea and also some fruit and exotic trees. We try to optimize water and resources in general
Our target is to make this garden auto sustainable and to increase the production of the land and local products with natural techniques.
From October 2020 we would need someone experienced in bricolage, carpentry and work with wood to help me build raised bed and help with making hot compost
The house is built in a traditional Strombolian style (it is very spartan) and it is only 50 meters from the sea . Our place is a good opportunity to feel the real life of Stromboli island.
Unfortunately, after the fire in May 2022 and after the "inevitable" flood, the island was destroyed
