    Serious and punctual , not troublemaker , creative and ordered.
    Due to land and farm extension , natural drope and wheater changement , my mission is a general maintenance of dirt road, trucks,house, wood, small but very strong rivers Gromolo and Buggine that have springs in the Valley. Meantime I'm projecting some small trees house or natural system to give water heated by sun on the tents camps or take off from the land a very old stone "refrigerator" discovered in the valley last year and so on.
    Of course there is a garden, some small part of land for fruit or vegetable growing, olive's trees , some animal but I prefer , in volunteers case, to be helped in several small and short project to clean,improve, develope what Nature or the man created one hundred years ago minimum.
    Volunteers will be accepted if their attitude or skills can support and realize some steps of this multitasked mission.
