  • Description


    my name is Laura. I live in an organic farm in the North of Italy, and there are always a lot of things to do.
    I need a good hand in the garden (weeding, watering the flowers...) and in the vegetable garden. Sometimes you might need to use a string trimmer: it is not complicated to use, besides if you`re unsure I will always be happy to show you and help you.
    Moreover, I can teach you what an organic lifestyle is. I live in an isolated place and the first small town is 2 kilometres away. You can get to Piacenza (the main town) by bus in 20 mins time.

    You will be staying in a shared house with other volunteers if we have more at once, and in a room on your own.
    If I have time to prepare meals, we'll be eating all together otherwise you'll be cooking by yourselves. Most of the times we do eat all together, mostly our own organic vegetables.

    I am looking for someone who is very willing to help me. Living in the countryside is absolutely amazing, but it requires passion, willingness, and dedication. I would like you to stay for possibly for at least 2 weeks, but if you`d like to stay for longer, that`s absolutely fine.

    I have four adorable dogs (a little spoiled) and two fat cats, they all love chilling with our volunteers. Please take a lot of pictures of them and send them to me!

    Please thoroughly read my profile and the reviews I have received from previous volunteers, and, of course, send me an e-mail for any further information! I will be more than happy to get back to you (I might be a little slow to respond due to my super slow internet connection, or maybe I will have lost my glasses!)

    Thank you for reading my profile, I am looking forward to meeting you.
