We are Marco and Sigga from Orlando, Florida. We have both recently graduated college with degrees in International Affairs and Environmental Science. Now that we have finished school and saved up a little money, we are here in Italy to start a project we have been looking forward to for quite awhile.
Marco's family owns farmland close to Altamura within the Parco Nazionale dell'Alta Murgia There is an abandoned masseria that sits on the land as well. Our wish is to restore the masseria while growing various crops including; industrial hemp, grain, legumes, fruits, vegetables and possibly having some animals as well.
Our first step in this process is to find jobs in order to apply for work visas. We are currently in Italy to network and look for an employer to sponsor us. In the meantime, we hope to volunteer around Puglia to meet people, learn skills we may eventually use, and experience the laid-back Southern Italian lifestyle!
