  • Description


    I want to transform my family's wonderful wood into a literary and artistic park where you can experience forest bathing. I am creating the paths and a vegetable garden that is also accessible to disabled people. We want to set up a literary farmhouse where we can do poetry therapy workshops. We may also need help with cleaning, serving breakfast to guests, carpentry, taking care of animals, clearing of the forest with the grass trimmer.
    Voglio trasformare il meraviglioso bosco della mia famiglia in un parco letterario e artistico dove fare esperienze di forest bathing. Sto realizzando i sentieri e un orto accessibile anche a persone disabili. Vogliamo mettere su un agriturismo letterario dove fare workshop di poetry therapy. Abbiamo bisogno di aiuto anche per pulizie, colazione, accudimento animali, lavori di falegnameria e decespugliamento.
