    Looking for help in Spring-Summer2021
    Hello! It’s Alex here! I’ve been volunteers in Spain, Portugal and Northern Italy, and after this, two years ago I've got my land. Since the first day we’ve been following the principles and the norms of Permaculture, which we fell in love with a few years ago, and which has profoundly affected my way of thinking and living.

    We plan to restrict, to the best of our ability, the use of cement or non-natural materials in the restoration of the old cottage house, in the gathering of rain water, and in the design of our fruit and vegetable allotment. These are only some amongst many ideas for our project.

    Our land is located approximately 2km from the centre of Solarino, in the province of Siracusa. As we are currently not living in the farm, priority will be given to guests who can arrive and move around with their own vehicles such as bikes, motorbike, order to be more independent. Also we prefer to host 2 people cause not living 24 hours in the farm we think the experience can be boring spending too much time alone. Essentials and produce from the farm will be provided for meals, and we may, at times, share some meals with you, but workawayers are responsible for their own food

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    I very much like meeting new people and exchanging knowledge and experiences. I occasionally (though very rarely) eat meat, and I'm very committed to good quality food. I have experience and skills in a variety of areas, including IT and project management. I love reading and learning about ‘green’ building, soil regeneration, earthworm farming and beekeeping
