    Description

    HI THERE, WE WELCOME ONE OR TWO WORKAWAYERS FROM OCTOBER 12 TO 30 FOR THE OLIVE HARVEST! :) Luca and I moved to the countryside from the city to produce our own food and live surrounded by nature. We have olive trees, nut trees, a vineyard, chestnut trees and fruit trees. We live with 2 dogs, hens ducks and pigeons. All our animals have been saved from farms where they would have been killed (except for the dogs, one was a stray dog). We are vegan with the only exception of eating the eggs that our hens lay. We have travelled and been wwoofers for a few years. As we have chosen to stop travelling and live in our own small house, produce our own food and look after our animals, we would like to meet peolple from all over the world and share experiences. We can host in a tent and share food. We ask approx 25 hours work a week. We need help to build stables, fencing, cut wood, finishing the outdoor bathroom, make a pond for ducks, work in the vegetable garden, picking fruit and making preserves and sharing house duties. In your freetime you can visit Viterbo, Rome, go to the hot springs or discover the countryside in Tuscia (north Lazio) or Umbria. Languages spoken Italian, English and French.
