In the middle of the Alcantara gorges, on the slopes of mt. Etna and watching the old village Castiglione di Sicilia, our place was built.
Our place is a villa of the nineteenth century, abandoned over the years and recently restoration has begun. And now there's a farmer back, and it's me Giovanni, from Bologna but with south Italian roots. I discovered permaculture in Casamance, Senegal, and I really felt in love with and decided to start here.
If you like nature, farm, healthy life, silence, music, sociability, solitude... If you love life come and share with us!
I'm currently looking for volunteers with specific skills such as carpentry, building, plastery, gardening.
We generally require very hard working people!
