  • Description


    CALL: Start 23rd of March onward during 2020

    Minimum stay for 4 weeks or stay for a longer period.

    Actually we're having a great exchange with a workawayer for 3 months and we're very happy. We hope to go on with a good connection also with you :)

    We are a family with 3 children of 10, 8 and 4 years old.
    We have been hosting workawayers for 3 years this November :)
    We live in a village 10 Km far from Bergamo Town (30 Km far from Milan, Northern Italy).
    We life in countryside near a river, hills and mountains.

    We are working at some projects:
    - we are homeschoolers
    - my husband is a Nonviolent Comunication trainer
    - I lead a freedom painting-colour expression workshop
    - we have a big room for yoga and other holistic activities
    - we are starting a cultural association for peace, awareness and happyness in life
    - we have a big garden with organic bio vegetable garden too.

    We live in a private house:
    - At first floor we have the flat.
    - At ground floor we have the office, the big room for workshops (Yoga, NVC, Colours, Meditations, ecc.) , a bathroom for customers/helpers and a bedroom for helpers.

    We are in permaculture/ecovillages consciousness/mood = share resources, save resources, natural products and food.
    We're looking for people with this consciousness or interested to learn about that, about Nonviolent Communication, environment awareness, selfmade stuff, recycle, upcycle, reuse, fixing stuff, empathic education, homeschooling and other similar, ecc.

    We're looking for someone that is happy and enthusiast to help us both in creative, handy, educational and in cleaning works, someone that understand and share our tasks for an holistic wellness for everyone.
    If we have a similar vision of the life, we think it will be easier to live together and to be happy in doing the daily tasks :)

    You can easily come to us by train or by plane landing to Milan-Orio al Serio BGY airport, or with a shuttle bus to Milan-Orio al Serio BGY airport.

    We are looking for a person who speaks english with our children, that is avaible to help us with children, houseworks (cleaning, fold clothes, ecc.).

    We also ask for help with practical works: help Davide to build forniture, fix broken stuff, fix the kitchen or the autocaravan, clean the garage or other practical works in the garden or self made stuff (also painting, ecc.) in our workshop in the garage.
    These kind of works depend on the season and on the projects ongoing week by week.

    Our preference is that the person could stay with us minimum 1 month.

    We eat 99% healty organic food.
    You'll be hosted in a private bedroom (only for you) without windows at the ground floor.
    (every helper found that comfortable and cute :) ).
    There's a bathroom mainly for you (and for some customers too) at the ground floor.

    Then you are welcome to stay in our flat 1st floor when you want, or in other rooms full of light at the ground floor (office, and training big room) to spend your free time, to read, to relax, to work.
    Also you can stay outside in the garden or in the patio.

    Please let us know if you're interested to know something more form us.
    Wish you all the best.
    Marialuisa, Davide + 3 kids.
