we are sara and fabio, born and raised in the city of genoa up to the age of 25. experiences, travel, studies and more make us understand that something in our life does not work. so we decide to change, move to the countryside and resume contact with nature. let's find out that there is a different way of living, we learn new things, we experiment, and we start our research between ancient and new knowledge, the degrowth theory, permaculture, the continuous work on ourselves and the environment that surrounds us bring us to explore new paths. After several years we find ourselves here on a project that embodies our dreams and comes to life through the experiences made so far. Today we are always looking, but many things have changed in our life we live in close contact with nature, in an ancient farmhouse on the border between Liguria and Piedmont, at the gates of the natural park of the marcarolo huts on the Ligurian Apennines.
We are looking for people who like us find pleasure in a simple life, marked by the rhythms of nature and peasant work.
The days here are composed of many different jobs, the vegetable garden, the wood, the animals, the progress of the renovation and many other practices that we carry out according to the principles of Permaculture.
