We live in a house - Laura is dedicated to finishes , decorations and sometimes the glazes (Painting technic Steiner) .
We have a piece of land, where there are olive trees and an orchard that gives us marvelous fruits (grapes , plums , figs , apples and pears). We are starting a project of a synergic garden, that we want to continue during the winter . Its primarily here and with the building that we need your help.
We don't need you to have previous experience, just the will to work and learn, so that this meeting will be good for both of us. Some times the work will make you feel your body, I dont think gardening can be done in other way.
The hours of work are flexible and we arrange according to your preferences, except when there is a job that needs to be done in a certain time (like collecting certain fruits, making mermelades, etc.)
The house is the space of everyone, so we expect everyone to collaborate with the tidiness and keeping of the place.
We have four adult children who attended Steiner schools, they live in the city and are with us only occasionally .
We have a van with 9 places we use in our work and when we go to the beach (very nice beaches here) or sightseing, it that can also be turned into a small mobile home ( self-built ) for our holidays traveling.
We have cats, but they are primately outside, and a dog that's still a puppy so it's very energetic.

We are giving a new structure to house with the construction of a new roof covering and a change of use of premises .
We need help for the construction of the roof ( carpentry work and masonry ) and plant (hydraulic and electric) , if necessary for the maintenance of land and the garden ( cutting grass , watering , pruning , etc . ) or also for the management of the house.
We can accommodate you in the house, where there are two or three rooms for a total of six beds. If anyone would prefer out there are space for tents.
We'd like to share with volunteers daily life and that it would create a climate of small community, but we are open to the inclinations of our guests with which we can agree the activities to do, methods and organization of the times.

Giada, Susi and Lusy came with the last minute option when we had a difficult time in our workshop because we had to deliver a job for a pub and we were far behind. With them I seemed to have three fairies who made the work a lot easier with
My work included construction of the stone wall in the back of the house. Although labor intensive I was able to break when necessary
It was very nice to have them with us and we would like them to come back
they were like family members and interacted very well with the other volunteers of the house, creating a very pleasant climate
They have helped us to realize our vegetable garden and in the house always with sorriiso and worshiped
We shared our stay there with 3 other Workawayers, and every now and then neighbours or friends popped in - it was a very lively bunch. Our shared meals were fun and delicious.
There's always something to do, but never
he is at school to learn carpentry so was the perfect helper for us,
He integrated perfectly with the spirit of our home-laboratory and gave us a hand with both the laboratories and their design, also in the ongoing construction of our roof indepentantly.
we regret that he was only here for a short period and hope
He helped us in cutting wood and domestic task. He always shows that he is available to help.
Allways active, allways funny and full of good ideas, and with an remarkeble place in the hills above Palermo i enjoyed the stay very much there, whilst helping mainly at the time painting and finishing the roof, but also in the garden.
Warm and generous
with a great sense of humor and with a strong empathy.
they knew exactly what was important to do without no need to ask, their energy and desire to do it so much that they must slow down.
have them at home has been an honor and a joy, they helped us with the edge of the wood, sanding and in the laboratory
