    Description

    Good morning everyone!!


    EVERYBODY IS WELCOME as long as she/he has a super big motivation for doing things, be creative and learn together your input is important!! …The idea is to be happy with the activity you are doing.
    Be welcome at my place !!

    My name is Marcello I’m born in the Netherlands, after traveling for some time in my house truck I have now landed on Corsica and I have been living here since january 2014 the last 2 1/2 years on a beautiful property (20 hectare) close to the sea together with my cats and some wild turtles actually while typing this I can hear the waves!! The land is not mine but i’m sort of free to do what I want, there is a big piece of forest with a path to a nice open place this is where I'm now building a cabin from material all for free which I find, get donated and recycle.
    I make my money with a little online record store and as an electrician/eco builder and try to be as much as possible at my little paradise called home.
    I also have a small vegetable garden it would be nice to extend it a bit.

    I can offer for you a stay in a caravan or you can stay in your own tent.

    I have many ongoing projects and only two hands to finish all. I hope to find people with experience in woodworking, decorating, gardening, wild-plants knowledge, painting, welding, sewing etc. There is always something to do and space to find what you like the most depending on priorities. I can share my knowledge about building, off-grid living and being creative with recycling

    Some ideas and projects:

    - New and improved outside kitchen place
    - Painting and decorating
    - Work in the vegetable garden with a little greenhouse
    - Cleaning the forest (cutting trees & making paths)
    - The Tiny house cabin
    - New mobile sauna (next winter I will start on it already have a nice base and all the wood for the exterior)
    - Outside workout / fitness place
    - Solar powered mobile Soundsystem (I'm also a Reggae, Soul,Funk and Jazz dj and my records need to be played)
    - Creating/ Finishing a wood stove for a hot tub
    - Preparing Firewood
    - Welding another stove for the sauna and the one for the caravan
    - Prepare the place for organising yoga, massage, sweat-lodge, healthy food & juice and meditation workshops
    - Document the projects, take photos for the new blog or Instagram
    - Building a solar dryer for tomatoes and fruits
    - etc, etc..

    I really enjoy a creative "work" atmosphere and I love to build and create things together with other people. As an early bird I like the energy of the morning and start with a meditation. I live on the sunny side of the sea so every morning it's possible to see the sunrise. My camp has a dry-toilet and outside shower and my kitchen is partly an open space so when it's raining (which is rare) life can be a bit challenging. Also expect some mosquitos (a lot!!!) mostly in summer
    I do have experience in hosting people on other platforms. I worked as a volunteer in several places so I know what it is.

    Send a request with a good description of your previous experiences and your ideas..And if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    I speak: French, English, Dutch and German.

    NO DOGS that’s complicated with the cats if you want to stay in your van I need to talk to the owners about it first.
