  • Descripción


    Ciao! We are a Sicilian family of 5 people and 4 dogs.
    We live in a big country house near the coast in Licata, Agrigento. We own almost 2 hectares of land and we would need help with its maintenance.
    A few years ago the property was well cared; we made wine from our grapes, we had chickens, goats, pigs and two small garden and we organized some non-profit events in order to bring back to life some old sicilian dishes and techniques.
    The product we produce are not for sale and we keep it for ourselves or for our friends.
    Right now me (Angelica,22) and my family are working hard cleaning the campaign from grass, fixing the old fences, restoring the garden and trying to arrange a campsite for workawayers.
    Our little goal is to be able to be self-sufficient as in the past, to waste as less as possible, to share our skills and traditions and of course to learn as much as we can from other people.
    We believe in a slower lifestyle, in a real contact with ourselves and nature; as the world runs forward we try to remain tied to tradition.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You will live in a close contact with nature, 5 minutes by car from the sea and 15 minutes from Licata center
    ( we go down to the center about 4 times per day and 1-2 to the beach in summer,
    so you can almost choose the time).
    For sure you will learn a lot of sicilian dishes and food traditions (homemade jam, pomodoro sauce, cotognata, dried tomatoes,ecc) we are used to eat all together at lunch and dinner and you should join us.
    You will learn how to do projects in the garden, how to use the field equipment.
    In your free time you could go around Sicily; the famous Agrigento valley of Temples is half an hour from us and there are trains to Palermo (2h30) and Catania (1h 30).
    You can join us trekking around licata or at least walking in the hills near our house.
