  • Description

    Description

    We are Bruno Lucia, Agnese - a 6 years girl - and Felice - 4 years.
    We live in Valle Tanaro - not far from Turin and close to the seaside as well as to the mountains. Living with us there are two friends - they come and go but they have their caravan here and when they stop travelling they come back here.
    We live in a big house in the forest, close to a big river (Tanaro) - where you can swim! - and we can go easily in the little town of Ceva.
    We have a carpentry, a 7m high room where we train circus disciplines and theatre in general. There are two donkeys, three goats, 6 chickens, two dogs and two cats living with us...as well as many many bees that give us honey.
    The house has a big wood oven that we light up almost every month to bake pizzas and bread - we have a sauna that we light up with wood!

    To workaway people we host, we ask to help 5 hours a day in outsides jobs (vegetable garden, stocking wood, cleaning nature around the house, taking care of the green....) or works about the house (big cleaning, order, taking care of kids...).
    Every day we organize the activities, in summer when it's very hot we usually work the early morning (7h-11h) and then have a break until 5pm when we work another couple of hours.
    If someone has particular needs (for example prefers to have afternoons free) we can decide together a different schedule to put together all the hours.
    We like to cook together and work in the house everyday jobs as a team, so we ask volounteers to be present at the meals preparations and when it's time to order the kitchen!!
    We prefer to take a 5 days period to decide together if the collaboration is fine and after decide with the volounteers to continue or not.

    PS - we do not eat meat!!!

    Help

    We need help for the vegetable garden - we started a synergistic project - also for caring the animals and keep their place clean. We'd like to have someone who can sometimes take care of Agnese and Felice, who likes to cook vegetarian food and give help to Bruno in the carpentery (he's still working on making forniture for the house, libraries, lamps...) and in the forest to keep it clean. If you like, from october to may, you can help Lucia with her circus classes (trapeze, aerial tissue and rope) so you can also learn a little of it!

    If possible, in the weekends or the days off, we ask you to take a break from the life in common and if there is the chance spend one night away from the house, or taking a little your time apart from the family so we can have a little privacy space...!
