    Ciao, I am Giorgia. I am born and bred in Siciliy! Capisti?!?!?!? I am a true gardener - (my name actually means the one who works the soil in Greek!!) I am passionate about an agricultural lifestyle - I wake up and get out there.
    IN THIS PERIOD WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE HAS KNOWLEDGE ABOUT BEEKEEPING (AGRICOLTURE) OR SOMEONE HAS KNOWLEDGES IN WOOD (WOODWORKER OR CARPENTER) IT WOULD BE A PLEASURE TO LEARN TOGETHER TO BUILT BEEHIVES AND A COMPOST TOILET TOGETHER :)

    HOWEVER EVERYONE WANT TO ENJOY THIS PROJECT WITH PASSION IS WELCOME!!!

    According to my American friend, I am a rough and tumble type of chick (whatever that means??). I have a dog - little Trucchi - who is semi annoying but small and cuddly and you will love her. I love to dance and sing throughout the day as life is beautiful and we must enjoy it. I like to make videos of nature and in the garden. I enjoy painting and drawing and like any Italian woman to cook Pasta!!! Just kidding I like to cook everything. Qui ti aspetto

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn a lot (we will study together) about Permaculture, gardening, the properties' of plants, pruning and Italian!!! You and I can improve our language skills (I can speak english, french and a little spanish and german ). However just to share our knowledges about material and spiritual life I think is the best thing we could exchange and that could make us, and the soil, richer!

    Hi I'm Giorgia. For the past two months I've been working in the countryside (20 km from Palermo), in a place called Sagana in the mountains; my plan is to start a Permaculture project here. Until now I have worked with my friends but now I understand that I need a little help :)
    I finished to create my first synergic orchard and I'm very satisfied (it's in the photos). I need help to create other raised flower beds, an organic out house and other stuff that I (or we) will think about during the development of this project!
    I'd also like you to help me a bit with maintaining the house because we will share all the spaces and you will be a part of the famiglia.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Here nature is amazing because there are mountains, a little lake and a beautiful river (with a lot of animals, frogs, insects snakes -they are not poisonous-) where I like to swim when the wheather is hot. Once per week I go to Palermo for my singing course so you could come with me (i can host you in Palermo in my parent's house) to visit it and to enjoy city's life).
