    Description

    We currently need help with prepping the fields then planting and caring for the hemp plants. 1 month minimum stays please.

    Hi we are Stefanie (American) and Rasmus (Danish) we met when Stefanie rented a room in Rasmus' apartment online.
    Now we are married with two kids. We just bought a castle and we dream to create a place that unites like-minded individuals through travel, art and co-creation.
    After years of dreaming, we took the plunge and bought a 1,000 year old castle in Tuscany, Italy. Our dream is to live a simpler life in a community setting surrounded by nature. To focus on community. To get away from the stress and the consumerism and get back to the earth and the love. To build, to learn and to create.
    Currently we host weddings and retreats and harvest olives, hemp and honey.

    We have a good team here of fun hardworking people.
    We are looking for open, adventurous people who are hardworking and self-sufficient. Who want to surround themselves with mindful people and create a better world for ourselves, our children and our planet. You must want to be surrounded by nature, learning, teaching, doing, hard work, music, good food and joy.

    You will be up early working in the fields or fertilizing the plants after dark.

    We all take turns cooking and cleaning.
    DISCLAIMER! We have just started this project - so you cannot come expecting perfection right away. You can however come and be a part of creating it.
    DISCLAIMER 2! We don't speak Italian yet - we have just arrived to Italy to start this project. So if you want a purely Italian experience we cannot provide it.

    Non smokers only thank you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can live in a 1,000 + year old castle in Italy!
    Learn how to work as a team with different cultures.
    Learn about farming and bee keeping.
    Enjoy the surrounding nature and pool!
    Rich of Italian culture and traditions, this area has preserved most of its architectural beauties intact. Tuscan art, culture, history, kitchen and traditions are appreciated all over the world. Tuscany is called the
    Birthplace of the Renaissance, lots of artists and writers were born here and here they found their source of
    inspiration. We hope you take some time by yourself to get to know the quiet beauty here.
    We are Danish and American. You'll never know who else will be staying here or where they will be from until you arrive. If you crave an Italian culture we cannot provide that - you will have to seek it out in the surrounding areas and people.
