    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will be involved in the Company's daily routine. They will be able to learn beekeeping work with Marco or with Elvira treat medicinal herbs and make simple herbal preparations (oleolites, alcohol). With Florinda and Katia prepare jams and juices, learn how to make bread with our organic flour. They will be able to help Giuseppe and Pietro in the maintenance work, in the olive harvest and in the care of the vegetable garden. In particular we would like to involve travelers in our INTEGRAL ECOLOGY PROJECT, starting from the book "Prima del Principio" written by several hands over two years which tells the formation of the first atomic particles according to the most up-to-date theories of quantum physics and introduces the students welcomed in the Educational Farm, through educational and artistic installations, in a world made of energy, of vibrations emitted by all the elements of nature, stimulating a comparison on the influences of this energy on our person.
    As regards this educational sector of the company, it is important to point out that our orientation is Catholic and we collaborate with the nearby parish through catechism activities. For this reason we would prefer to host volunteers who believe in the existence of an intelligent design behind this wonderful world, to share new knowledge.

    We ask our volunteers for a commitment of 5 days for 5 hours a day.
    We would like to host people on hand in our garden and with animal care throughout the year and as well as people on hand for the general maintenance of the estate.

    For those who are particularly interested in agricultural work, here are our activities according to the season:
    October: olive harvest, oil production
    November: pruning
    December / March: pruning and harvest of citrus fruits
    January / May: pruning of trees and vineyards

    Either way, artists are also welcome and will find a place where they are sure to be inspired and with lots of art work to do! (Land art, creative workshops with children ...)
