Our mission, so far, has been to to recuperate the ancient arteries of our woods...the lost footpaths of the forest...
For the past 2 years we have been involved in a process of reawakening the agricultural values in our quaint, festive and well-spirited community, that is the village of Gorfigliano---a natural paradise in the midst of the Apuane Alps of Tuscany...
We are looking for people who have a love of agriculture, music, arts and a natural desire to help others...each with her/his unique talents...our current fascination is with social/bio dynamic agriculture, (or in other words) a pure, organic, chemical-free style of living.
Whilst one is a member of the organization, the jobs one is required to perform (just 5 days a week) may vary from gardening, chopping wood, organizing village festivals, teaching native languages (especially to children : ), cooking, cleaning, participating in jam sessions in the village square, etc...
