  • Description


    I live in a small town in the province of Verona halfway between Verona and Mantua. The village is on the plain and is close to Lake Garda and the Alps and well connected by means of transport in 40 minutes to Verona which is halfway between Milan and Venice and between Trento and Bologna.
    I am doing some home work to make it as environmentally friendly as possible (DIY insulation, clay plaster and more). I have a small garden and a biodynamic vegetable garden that expands more and more. I'd like to build a brick stove.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn some biodynamic horticulture techniques and some ecological construction techniques. Of course you can learn Italian but also visit the nearby places. The city of Verona or the nearby cities such as Vicenza, Mantua, Padua, Brescia, Milan, Modena, Bologna, offer many cultural offers such as museums or places of interest of all kinds

  • Help


    The help I need is in the garden and in the brickwork in the house and sometimes even in light carpentry or design to improve the energy efficiency of the house. The idea is to design the house and the permaculture land
