Hello my name is Marco, with other volunteers we work to create a meeting point for our community and the people who visit this region. We are a non-profit association and our donors have given us an old stone house from the 17th century and a beautiful farmhouse in the high mountains with meadows and pine forests to make something new by involving enthusiastic people like you. We need help to renovate the house and the farmhouse but also ideas to develop activities and proposals to pursue at every step the goal of sustainable development. We are currently working on the realization of an artistic and cultural atelier and to make possible the use of natural spaces as places to relax for all and for the practice of disciplines like yoga or meditation.

With us you stay in a beautiful and unspoiled Ticino valley, exploring the surrounding nature, in the peace of mountain life, or spend your time in the sun on maggia river. But if you miss the crowd in less than one hour you can reach Locarno and the lago Maggoire area, Bellinzona with the three Castel or Lugano on Ceresio lake. During sommer many small local events will allow you an authentic contact with the people. If you look for live music between June and August there is a lot live concerts.
If you like Cinema you cant miss the "International Locarno film Festival" in August.
We are renovating our house at the village and hut in the mountains and at the same time we are developing our artistic, cultural and recreational offers.
We are looking for help in different actievities, cleaning, painting, material removal, forest and pasture care and construction of small wooden structures to create a camping place in the mountain.
If you have good web or marketing skills, you can help us by developing our website (wordpress) or promoting our activities on social media.
For some activities, you need sturdy shoes and comfortable seasonal work clothes.
We can host up to 5 volunteers in a completely independent house.
Depending on the activity, you'll stay:
in our 17th century house with 2 rooms (3 beds + 2beds) shared bathroom kitchen and terrace with barbecue.
in the stone hut in the mountains where we live in a simple but confortable way in a large common room, sharing kitchen and bathroom.
In general, we cook and eat the lunch (italian country style) all together. If you have special needs (vegetarian or vegan), we will try our best to provide the necessary to prepare your dishes. In case you are celiacs we need to discuss in advance your needs to avoid any health issues.
We pay attention to a healthy and abundant diet with seasonal products taking into account as far as possible all your desires.
Other foods or products are instead to be purchased at your expense such as:
chocolate, toffees and sweets, alcohol, personal hygiene and body care products, cosmetics and medicines.
To move around during your free time you can use the public transport that serves the village. You can also use our electric bicycle for small journeys.
If you have special wishes, we will accompany you by car as much as possible.
