  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 5 people: Sergio (63), Marisa (61), Francesca (33), Simone (25) and Andrea (23).
    All members of the family works in the farm, each one according to his free time and abilities.
    We are situated into a beautiful little valley far from Modena about 50 km.
    The farm is also an educational farm, where we do educational activities for groups of children, particularly from April to July.
    In the farm we breed donkeys, with whom we do activities for kids, trekking and much more.
    We have also two cows, seven chickens, three rabbits, one dogs and four cats too.
    Around us we have a small vineyard and garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In your free time you could go to visit the interesting historical places all around; Modena and Bologna are not so far and we are glad to take you there.
    Moreover you can do beautiful walk around our little valley that bring you in very nice and magical places (devil’s bridge, ca ducato, ecc). Life here is relaxed, happy, and peaceful. and we should enjoy every aspect of life.
    We had several volunteers in the past ; two of them spent at least one year with us and one still is part of the family (Andrea).

    Help

    We need a few volunteers to help us out at our very special farm during the next months.
    Actually we are working on the renovation and maintenence of the farm.
    Everyday is different, it depends from who is free, the weather forecast, and other several reasons.
    The main works to do are:
    cleaning and tidyng of farm, sorting wood, paint wood fences outside, manage the vegetable garden, renovationing and decorating animal houses.
    In general for us, the best is to choose something that volounteers can do according with individual skills and what they like. It is helpful to have people who can notice things that could be improved and who can do things with their own volition.
