    Update 2021 : we are organizing the second free Osho Campus from August 26th to 29th.

    1) We are looking for individuals or couples able to cook VEGAN lunch and dinner for 20 to 30 people. Some Italian or Spanish is required. Period of stay is August 24th to Sepember 3rd but you can arrive earlier or leave later according to your needs.
    During the campus we need your help for the time needed to cook lunch and dinner and some pots washing ( the guests will bring and clean their own plates cutlery and glasses). You will sleep in a roulotte.
    After and/or before the campus you will have some free days to rest or go around.

    2) We seek 2 or 3 more people for generic help during the campus from august 24th to 30th . You will sleep in a tent and help us in keeping the place clean and tidy. It will take about 2 hours of your time per day. You will have time to enjoy the campu activities in the campus program as well.

    We are Massimo and Giovanna, both vegan. We own some land on mount Etna at 1.000 asl. Nearest town is 6KM away; the vulcano top is 11Km away.
