I am the pioneer of an Eco Village under construction. With me there is a group of people who want to help the project of sustainable living to develop and so on the farm is like being in an extended family. At this moment everything is evolving! The building is an industry building made out of bricks, it is a very beautiful big and spacious. There is also a 6.000 square meters of woods on the river Stella, where we bathe in the summer. Permaculture is practiced on a small vegetable garden and food forest.

Help with Eco Projects
You will learn a lot what does it mean to start an eco village, there is a lot of work on relations, decision making and taking care of one another. The building with natural material is something now that will be helpful wherever you will live in the future, know how to build and plaster a wall. Learning how to build with bricks or re using second hand materials. Working in nature is also restoring and beautiful as is also eating out from the land you are caring about.
The activities that take place are: to build walls with natural materials (straw, earth, sand ..), look after the small vegetable garden, clear the forest from brambles and brushwood, organize artistic and / or educational events on agricultural issues. Participating in the everyday leaving from cooking to cleaning.
The first floor of the building is very comfortable to sleep in, it is a big room of 1400square meters!! We have hot sowers and a working kitchen, when the fall and winter will come in we will have to move in a smaller space to be warm, but we will have all we need there too!!
I welcome volunteers all year, the minimum stay required is 2 weeks. Languages spoken: English and Italian. Food: vegan - vegetarian. Smoking accepted only if respectful of those who do not smoke.
