*️️️️️️Can you help us set up our sustainable animal sanctuary with permaculture project?*️️️️️️
Dear workawayers :)
We just bought a beautiful property in Sicily with an amazing view of Etna and are starting our animal sanctuary with permaculture project.
I’m Christin, 33 years old from Germany, and I quit my office job some years ago to go traveling. Since quite some time I had the feeling and desire though to use my time “better”, to create something beautiful and make this world a bit better. I love animals and I’d love to live off-grid and self-sustainable (one day).
My partner Luca is 28 years old, from Italy (Torino). He's a musician and traveled the world even more than me.
We're both vegan and want to give something back to Mother Nature, hence our project. :)
We found an abandoned dog in the streets of Sicily beginning of the year when looking for a property who's happily living with us now (his name is Vento). And some weeks ago, the day we moved to our property, a one day old kitten arrived as well. Alma is doing well, but it's a lot of work and it looks like two other 1 day-old kitten will arrive today. So we definitely need urgent help! We're also trying to build a fence at the same time and plant some trees and other plants. ANY help would be highly appreciated, doesn't matter if you're experienced or not :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile and we’d love to hear from you! Any questions - just let us know!

PS: You can either camp on our property, so sleep in a tent or in a hammock. We have everything available here or you can bring your own stuff of course. You could also stay in the house which isn't perfect yet, but good enough to sleep in :)
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
You have the possibility to be part of the very beginning of a project and shape its future together with us. You can bring up any idea and we can discuss different possibilities and learn and grow together. You can also learn how to care for very young kittens and how to build a fence.
We need help caring for our animals (a dog, a 4 week old kitten, two very young kitten only some days old). That means boiling their towels from time to time, cleaning their areas, assisting in the feeding process (maybe also feeding) etc. We also need help building a fence and a safe area for the cats. Also our plants have to be watered, dishes have to be washed, food has to be prepared etc.
