  • Description


    Although the land has been in the family for several decades, I have in the past year taken to creating projects, learning from the land, and making more niches for nature to fill and prosper. the projects I have in mind are earth works, and swales, building a rudimentary greenhouse, rocket stove, food forest, and making the house itself more in-tune with the natural rhythms. certain essentials are missing from the building, and some of our projects will be orbiting around making temporary solutions before the house is fully finished.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the area, there is a volcanic lake, the historical town of Viterbo, which has a lot of life, and a train that goes from Viterbo to Rome, for around 4 euro. It is a calm area, with a small food shop, and restaurant in walking distance. you would learn about geography, soil, permaculture principals, the history of the region, and I also have some good personal stories I have from the different places I've lived.

    if you enjoy beautiful views, nearby hiking trails, and working with the land, you're welcome here. We have many oak, olive, fruit and nut trees. if you have experience with gardening, or other permaculture-esc experiences, by all means, I would love to incorporate your ideas into the land. As I am just starting, organization may be a bit haphazard, but its all part of the process, I want to help you help me help you.

    we have a large room on the bottom floor with three beds, a bathroom, heating, and electricity. we don't have WIFI but could easily give hotspot from the phone. Lunch and Dinner would be home cooked meals, with food from the local market (mostly vegetarian), and a near by shop would provide food essentials, such as cornetti, cookies, milk and coffee.

    on the property itself, we have a lot of boardgames, books, art supplies, and some cool gadgets. In Viterbo there is a lot to do, and see, which is only a bus or taxi ride away, the town has events, markets, tourists, and historical sights, (some Catch 22 scenes were filmed there) as well as a large international community.
