    *Workaway note: Please contact this host in Italian.*

    Hello,
    I am Ilaria and I live with my husband Leonardo and my daughter Erika in a small hamlet of Castel San Niccolò, in the province of Arezzo. We moved here from Florence, Leonardo works outside the home while I take care of cultivating the farm. It is a small farm where I have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, chestnut trees and a small farm of chickens, ducks and rabbits.
    I am an agronomist and environmental guide, involved in projects for the enhancement of the territory and the dissemination of organic and biodynamic agriculture in Casentino. I am an expert in the recognition and use of wild herbs and I offer courses on this topic. I am interested in permaculture and all cultivation techniques that enhance the natural environment.
    Our daughter Erika is a homeschooler.
    We do not speak English, I would like to learn it but at the moment we would prefer to host someone who can also speak Italian.
    We are omnivores.
    We are very sociable people but we also love to keep our spaces and respect those of others.

    Ciao,
    sono Ilaria e vivo con mio marito Leonardo e mia figlia Erika in una piccola frazione di Castel San Niccolò, in provincia di Arezzo. Ci siamo trasferiti qui da Firenze, Leonardo lavora fuori casa mentre io mi occupo di coltivare il podere. Si tratta di una piccola azienda agricola dove ho un orto, alberi da frutta, castagneto e un piccolo allevamento di polli, anatre e conigli.
    Sono agronoma e guida ambientale, impegnata in progetti di valorizzazione del territorio e di diffusione dell'agricoltura biologica e biodinamica in Casentino. Sono esperta nel riconoscimento e uso delle erbe spontanee e propongo corsi su questo argomento. Mi interesso alla permacultura e a tutte le tecniche di coltivazione che valorizzano l'ambiente naturale.
    Nostra figlia Erika è homeschooler.
    Non parliamo inglese, mi piacerebbe impararlo ma al momento preferiremmo ospitare qualcuno che sappia parlare anche in italiano.
    Siamo onnivori.
    Siamo persone molto socievoli ma amiamo anche mantenere i nostri spazi e rispettare quelli degli altri.
