    SOS!!! LOOKING FOR HELP IN MY FARM: AUTUMN IS BEAUTIFUL BUT THERE IS A LOT TO DO!!!

    I'm Paola, I have a small biological farm, where I grow fruit and vegetables, mostly apples.
    My vegetable garden is inspired by synergic agriculture and the tbiodynamic calendar, and i'm really keen to follow the rhythm of nature.

    We also have animals here - a donkey, chickens, ducks and rabbits - which the workawayers will also take care of, feeding them and cleaning their cages.

    I really like to show my activities to people and children, to involve them in another kind of life,
    During spring, I have groups of children that come here to see how farm life is!

    I'd like to host people that want to share and help in these activities. We also have to prepare jam , aromatic salt, tomato sauce and other products to sell at the small market closeby.

    There is also the oppurtinity to stay longer, for an entire season, to complete a growing cycle.

    I can offer a single room with private bathroom and a common kitchen.

    Please write to me in italian or French (you must speak at least one of these languages) as I am still learning English.

    It would be better for you to have a car, but we have a bus at 2 km that runs on weekdays and another at 4 km that runs also on the weekend.
    we have some bikes that you can use to go around the lovely region,
    we have a castle and parks and Parma is a really nice city at just 18 km from here.
