  • Description


    The structure is an old rural farmhouse recently renovated by our hand (Alessandra and Massimo). Situated in Sassello (SV), in the GeoPark area of Monte Beigua, isolated between fields and woods. It is connected to the main paved road with a 800 meters of dirt road. Through our Cultural Association, we organize events and workshops on the farm about the relationship between art, nature and the identity of places.
    We need help on our vegetable gardens and help in the general maintenance of the house, and help with the kids.
    We love nature, walk, cook and eat around the fire!
    We have our vegetable garden with a lot of different vegetables and fruit trees. We don't use any type of pesticides.
    We have our solar panels, our photovoltaic system and our firewood.
    We live with one dog, Settembre, and tow cats (Campagna and Romeo). And we've two fantastic kids: Delia that has six years! And Giacomo Sirio that has at the moment 16 months of life :-)
    We prefer to host only one workawayer per time.

  • Help


    We are looking for helping above all on vegetable gardening activities, but as well helping on our Association activities (art, eco projects...) and on the general maintenance of the house.
    Since we have 2 babies (Delia, six years old and Giacomo Sirio 16 months of life ) we're looking for people that like to stay with kids and that want to talk a lot with them in his own mother tounge language (we prefer english or spanish mother tounge). We would like to have time for english lessons.
    We need help in the kitchen, to put in order the house and take care of the garden.
