We are an ecovillage project founded by a group of 6 young people in the Langhe hills, Unesco heritage, Piedmont, north west of Italy.
We are restoring an abandoned farmhouse with bioarchitecture techniques and we have an agricoltural byodinamic project of 8 ha: a garden, cereals, an orchard and a wooden forest.
We organise small events or courses to spread the knowledge on how to become a small scale byodinamic farmer, on how to build a raw clay oven and on how to cook local and traditional products.
we love kids: we host a homeschooling project, one day per week.
