    Description

    We really need someone or a couple of people to house-sit the Garden on a long-term basis. We will often be traveling so we need a hand to help take care of the animals (dogs & cats), generally help keep the Garden tidy and in good shape.

    The Garden is in southern Italy, in Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot, fronting the Ionian Sea and Greece. Common spaces are the large kitchen/dining area, pantry, washroom/ storeroom, bathroom.

    The Peace Garden--the first in Europe-- covers 2.4 hectares of biologically cultivated olives, cherries, walnuts, figs, pears, apples, almonds; several large garden areas for the vegetables; 2 vineyards, 8 cats and 3 dogs. The Garden is where the Law of Time, discovered by Prof. José Arguelles, is applied in practical ways, as a means of re-synchronizing the brain to natural cycles as well as a totally new social/organizational model; much attention is given to healing techniques (music therapy with crystal bowls, craniosacral balancing, chromopuncture, etc.), art, and interpersonal dynamics as evolutionary growth processes.
