💮 URBAN CREATIVE FARMING CALL / April-Sept in Umbria!
We are a family living between Umbria and South Tyrol. At the moment our propriety in Foligno is our base for traveling and working, also in other lands. We just renovated the house and there is a lot to do all around and inside, and a lot has been done already thanks to the support of a larger, amazing, family. Spring is beautiful in Umbria, we're really excited to experiment new things in the garden, atelier and lab.
If you have permaculture projects, ideas or experiments you would like to develop contact us it might be the right place and moment! Our garden needs some love, there's a watering system connected to the roof and as you can see in the pictures the idea of a double circle field, already connected with tubes to the watering system, covered by a dome of bamboo. There are some great projects already started but they can be developed, we would love to create more space for medical herbs, create a little geodetic dome and an earth oven for example. Experts of fermentation or natural medicine and cosmetics or plant dyes are also welcome.
Unexperienced but joyful humans are also very welcome, please contact us if you feel it's calling you.

You can live in the historical centre of beautiful Foligno, perfect place to explore the surroundings, like Assisi, Montefalco, Perugia, Spello, Trevi. There is a beautiful mountain, Pale, for climbers, 10 min by car from here and mountain bikers will also find a lot of trails all around. We don't have a car at the moment but the nearby villages and towns can by visited by public transports
We are looking for help with a permaculture project for our urban garden, art projects, house maintenance like painting wood, iron, or building with recycled wood. If you want to experiment something with eco-building, or you have a cool art project you would like to develop maybe it's the perfect place for you! We love visionary and crazy ideas.
You will have a private room and access to all the house. At the moment we have a room for yoga and a big atelier space. Please bring your own materials for your art projects. You will work max 5 hours a day so consider the possibility to have your own project to develop or extra plans because Foligno might become boring after 2 weeks.
Simple breakfast and lunch are included, our diet is vegetarian and really connected to the seasonal and local products, but you can always use the kitchen and fridge and Foligno is an amazing place to discover italian special food.
