    Description

    hi! we are Elisa Matteo and our childs Rio and Vento (9 and 1.5 years old) .
    We met in spain studing permaculture. Both decided to find a way changing our life and caring the planet!
    When we came in italy we found the house where we live now, and there born our beautiful childs.
    Now we try to live as much sostenible as possible. Matteo works in an Art school and Elisa take care of our ecological garden. both love to work together (also Rio!) outside, making bread, vegetables etc...
    We have a very little farm with 4 sheeps, 4 chicken, a duck, 2 turtles, a cat and a puppy dog.
    At the moment, we need some help in the maintenance of the house, like helping cooking, taking care of the animals, specially spending time with the dog and preparing the vegetal garden for next season.
    We love workaway.info, as a way to meet new people and exchange experiences and dreams.
    Our house is in the tuscany countryside, just 15 minutes from Lucca city and 25 from Pisa... it's an old little farm and we are trying to replace it! We love nature, practice meditation and eat vegetarian. We are really simple people.
