    I came back from Northern Italy 4 years ago and I'm fixing up the country house to make it productive with my father and brother. We are the owner together with my aunt. We still don't have a clear project but I'm personally interested in permaculture and I would like to follow this way.
    Me and my father are vegetarian.

    You will stay in our family's country house.
    The volunteer tasks that we need help with are mainly at open air.
    Right now we have things to do like:
    - House cleanings
    - Clean the gardens collecting all the possible stuff, like bricks and woods, and set some order.
    - Clean the flowerbed
    - Clean a vintage water tank
    - Cut grass with a brush cutter (only if you have experience with that)
    - Paint irons gate and walls

    Would be useful too to have people who have experience, or are TRULY motivated in:
    - Arts, we would appriciate some good piece of art if you are real artists
    - Painting, metal and walls.
    - Stone wall, making them
    - Permaculture and projecting food forest

    We are two kilometers far from the train station. You can get trains to Messina, Taormina, Catania and Siracusa plus some beautiful village between.
    There are some beautiful places not so far, like Savoca (famous for "The Godfather" movie) and Forza D'Agrò (famous for the great panorama and fish restaurants)
    I can lend you bikes for free, but I could ask you a caution.
    You can go trekking on the hills and mountain around, a close one is the Monte Scuderi (1253mt) or farer to Etna.
    We are two kilometers far from the beach.
    There a couple of SPAs in the area and private thermal baths in the village of Alì Terme.
