Looking for help from mid January 2023.
(ONLY women, couples or families... sorry NO single men).
If you want to learn basics of saffron growing, natural and biological agricolture, and some wild foraging, I can tell you all I know in exchange for some help with saffron harvesting (mid October - mid November, 4/5 hours per day), sowing and harvesting plants (Spring/Summer, 3/4 hours per day), or different tasks into the house/garden/woods (all the year long).
We are a peculiar family and small community: me, my daughter, her father, grandparents, italian and foreign neighbours, friends from a local community network... sometimes spread around, sometimes all together!
I started my countryside adventure on summer 2011, when I bought a piece of forest land on central Italy hills: a lot of trees, path walks and old stones.
I fell in love with Valmarecchia valley the first day I saw it, and I thought the land name was a kind of sign: in the local dialect, Boratoja means "with a good will"... in other words "for the ones who wants to trek" as the hill is quite steep!
The land has been abandoned since 60 years, so it is now a wild woods with the ruins of an old stone farmhouse.
I am running a small agricultural activity since 2015, growing biological aromatic herbs (till now mainly saffron, from Spring 2022 more culinary/medicinal plants).
In the future I would love to have more rooms for hosting travellers (at the moment I can offer just one room or a big tent in the garden) and hopefully transform the solo job into a group activity. In the meanwhile I am working on different community projects with a very alive local association.
Some interests of mine: photography, yoga and bioenergetic therapy, culinary/medicinale wild herbs, auto-production, outdoor education, training dogs, backpacker travelling (before having two dogs and a baby!), hispanic languages and cultures...
I live 3km away from any food shop, so if you are not coming for a work exchange (i.e. Bewelcome or Trustroots guests) I will kindly ask you a contribution for food costs.
PS: I have one dog, Mina and one cat, Pirata: they are funny, cuddly and adventurous.... while the forest around is inhabited by wolfs, deers, boars, badgers, hares, porcupines... and snakes! (so better bring closed shoes!)

Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
I can offer spanish conversation, while I would like to learn some Portuguese basics.
Hosts will have their private room (2 beds), common bathroom.
I live in a countryhouse, 3km away from any food shop.
You can reach me by train to Cesena + bus (direction Bagno di Romagna, bus stop Montepetra) or train to Rimini + bus (direction Novafeltria, last bus stop), then we will pick you up.
Nearby you can have wonderful TREKKINGS on the hills/mountains (400/1.400mt) or HORSE ridings, you can visit medieval little towns (Sant'Agata Feltria, San Leo, Pennabilli... all reachable by local transports) or NATURAL PARKS...
if you are obsessed from CLIMBING, you will love the rocks around Perticara (3.5 km far)!
