I am Toni, typical Apulian peasant, ecologist , manage my own farm, which is located in Oria (Br), in the country, has an area of 10 hectares, is composed of several plots of land not far from them. There are 700 olive trees, oranges, almonds, figs, pears and a small vegetable garden synergistic. There are dogs, cats and chickens. I ask co-operation throughout the year, the olive harvest (November), for the fruit picking, orchard, small renovations and daily help at home.
For some time I have a dream: to create an eco-village, I'm building a house of straw bales with the help of friends and volunteers.
Guests volunteersers 2 weeks minimum, acceptable for long periods, in double rooms, the accommodation is simple and spartan, there are compost toilets, meals are organic, vegetarian and vegan raw food sometimes. Together with a friend, we organized a course of raw food. No smoking, no alcohol, no drugs.
