Ciao a tutti,
we are looking for enthusiastic persons willing to give us a hand to work on a ground that needs to be refreshed and restyled.
We have purchased a land of more than one hectare adjacent to our property. It has been in a state of total abandon for more than 40 years. Some job has already been done but there is still a lot to do. If you like to make your hands dirty with plants and nature and your are not scared of Sicilian sun, then this is the right place for you!
Waiting to hear from you!

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We offer a family atmosphere, welcoming and open. We have already hosted so many people in our house coming from all over the world. With all of them has been a deep and enriching experience! We believe that the encounter of different cultures and life experiences is the most powerful method for recognizing our common and basic humanity!
Our home and our meditation center is attended by many friends. We meditate regularly and propose activities such as feldenkrais, homemade bread making, seminars, music etc.
