  • Description

    Hello everyone,
    I am Rita, 56 years old and I live in the south of the Netherlands. For more than 33 years I have worked at the office, but at the second half of 2020 I want to take a sabbatical, because you are never too old to pursue your travel dreams.

    Leaving the city and spend some time in Italy, in the countryside, that would be marvelous. I am looking for all kinds of agricultural volunteer work. I speak Dutch, German, English and a bit Italian. I love to learn (even at my age😊) everything about permaculture, organic farming, self-sufficiency etc, because I realize that we only have one planet earth and we have to take good care of it!

    In 2012 I stayed a week in Italy helping with the olive harvest at a farm in Rufina. I had a great time there!
    I love coming to Italy within a few months!! Hope to see you!!

    In 2015 I started to learn Italian, so I am able to speak Italian (a little) and I am still learning. I love the language, the people, the food ... everything .... as long as it is Italian.
