  • Description

    Description

    Last year we, Anja and Celeste, bought a small hamlet (borgo) in Le Marche. We are two Dutch friends and colleagues. We fell immediately in love with the place, which is beautifully situated in the hills, at 15 minutes driving distance from San Severino. It’s in Italian style with a villa, a few smaller houses, a little church, a school, a swimming pool and a workshop for artists. Some buildings ready for us, others in rough construction with room for imagination and building work. In addition we have extensive farmland with olive and walnut trees, a little stream set in wild groves. We are an agriturismo, farm stay, with olive trees and some wild pieces of land that we would like to turn into a food forest. We also want to create a biological vegetable garden. There is still much work to do to turn the place into a biological farm stay. We need people who would like to contribute to this transformation. The work is very rewarding and fulfilling. We provide accommodation and food in return for garden work and small maintenance work.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will stay at the countryside and get a feel for the Italian life-style as well as an international mixture. We have visitors from different countries. We speak several languages and one could benefit from that. One could learn about a vegetarian and eco life style.

    Help

    At the moment we need somebody who can help with the pruning of the olive trees and fertilising the ground around the trees, cutting the grass etc. Somebody who has knowledge and experience with creating a vegetable garden would be really helpful. And there is always need for a handy man or woman who can do maintenance jobs.
