This Workaway was born from the idea of opening a place to make various experiences and experiments possible: living outside one's comfort zone, having the possibility of being more in contact with natural elements, allowing children to measure themselves / grow as freely as possible.
In recent years, therefore, we have also lived in communities, we have experimented with natural construction techniques, we have hosted many travelers, especially families with children, and socialization events and gatherings of peasant networks and mutual aid with other rural realities have been organized .
The activities that mainly take place today are home schooling, the management of common areas and the maintenance of the land and trees, the harvesting of olives and fruits. Even a small vegetable garden gives us something to consume.
We prefer to produce food and what we can't do we buy it or exchange it with friends. The ideal would be not to rely on large-scale distribution.
We consume mostly vegan, but we are flexible.
Questa Workaway nasce dall'idea di aprire un luogo per rendere possibili varie esperienze e sperimentazioni: vivere fuori dalla propria zona di comfort, avere la possibilità di essere più in contatto con gli elementi naturali, osservare ai piccoli di misurarsi / crescere più liberamente possibili.
In questi anni quindi è anche vissuto in comunità, si sono sperimentate tecniche naturali di costruzione, si è ospitato molti viaggiatori, soprattutto famiglie con bambini, e si sono organizzati eventi di socializzazione e raduni di reti contadine e di mutuo aiuto con altre società rurali .
Le attività che oggi principalmente si svolgono sono l'educazione scolastica, la gestione degli spazi comuni e la manutenzione del terreno e degli alberi, la raccolta delle olive e dei frutti. Anche un piccolo orto ci da qualcosa da consumare.
Preferiamo produrre il cibo e cosa non riusciamo a fare lo sconto acquistiamo o scambiamo con gli amici. L'ideale sarebbe non appoggiarsi alla GDO.
Consumiamo prevalentemente vegano, ma siamo flessibili.
