    Descripción

    Hello dear traveller, I'm Lorenzo a 34 years sicilian guy.
    In 2022 I will live between Sicily and Catalunya(Spain), where my girlfriend Placida, stays now, to develop her dance projects. So this year you will probably not know her (she is in mentioned in the feedbacks), but we can always talk about dance.
    I grow up and now I live in the countryside, in south-east of Sicily, on the top of a hill close to Avola (Siracusa), in the middle of a 28 hectare property close to Nature Reserves (Cavagrande del Cassibile and Vendicari) and UNESCO baroque cities.
    After being a farmer on my land I quitted discovering my creative side as I started to experiment with natural materials and finally founded a natural jewelry brand: (ask me for the Insta or FB) using materials that I harvest from more then 40 plants in this part of Sicily. I sell it on a street market in my wonderful city: Noto.
    This work is really my big passion and you will hear and see a lot about it, staying with me.
    I'm also passionate about: traditional Sicilian music which I also sing and play (I have a not professional band and you may come to the rehearsals and some concerts), plants, sustainability, food, crafts, and everything is about being using our intuitive side making or fixing things. I love building problem solving.
    Ah, you will probably hear a lot about wild fires too as it is a big problem on this part of Sicily and I'm cofounder of a Social Movement to struggle it.
    I really believe in creativity as one of the basic values of my life, as for me creating is kind of therapy/meditation.
    I cannot imagine myself leaving far from nature as creativity too and one of my dreams, a day, is to found a community in this huge land, as I really believe in Collaboration too.
    I enjoy so much Workaway as my personal way to open my mind and travel around the world (I'm not a good traveller) knowing other people, and I'm curious about who are you, what you are coming to do in this life and what we are going to share opening my world and my house to you.
    I live in a little house on a part built on the rock attached to a big cave, near my parents house (we are neightbours) and the jewelry studio.
    I share my house with volunteers: kitchen, living room and bathroom for showers (we prefer to use outdoor compost toilets, there is one every caravan). Your accomodation will be in one of the caravans. There are also 2 cats and 2 dogs around.
    I speak English, Spanish, French and Sicilian and eat organic food, mostly vegetarian/vegan and local.

    what are you going to do here:
    -help in the kitchen cooking/baking
    -help in the big work of Isolation of my house and the cave from a big rain infiltration
    -build with wood
    -improve the quality of life in and around the jewellery studio (ordering, cleaning, installing a wood stove, and more)
    -creative works to decorate the house and the studio
    -empty, clean and order the cave
    -take pictures, record videos, making graphic design

    I almost always prefer hosting people already skilled in the kind of help I need, so:
    HANDY PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WITH DIY SKILLS AND WOODWORK SKILLS, VEGAN-VEGETARIAN-GLUTEN-FREE COOKING SKILLED PEOPLE, CREATIVE/ARTISTIC PEOPLE ESPECIALLY WITH SKILLS CONNECTED TO FASHION AND ADVERTISEMENT, ARE ESPECIALLY WELCOME, more if you have two or more of these skills together.
    We especially prefer people already use to country life able to use their hands and cook for their selves and others and physically fit, able to be flexible and adapt to new environments and people, possibly use to drive and with an independent but social attitude.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Lorenzo loves to share his knowledges about local plants, landscape and environment, local cities architecture and rural history, about sicilian traditional music, instruments and life style, natural jewelry, creativity, and hand crafts in general.
    Placida loves to share her knowledges in contemporary dance, Improvisation art, body consciousness and traveling.

    what are you going to do here:
    -help in the kitchen cooking/baking
    -help in the big work of Isolation of my house and the cave from a big rain infiltration
    -build with wood and other things concerning wood

    -creative works to decorate the house and the studio

    -take pictures, record videos, making graphic design

    Generally we try to concentrate the tasks in the morning to leave free afternoons for the volunteers (from 8,30 to 13,30, but it's flexible).
    We like to share but even to have independent people, so often the work can be independent but with me on a side to make it more clean.

    Alojamiento

    Accommodation in two caravans both with a double and a single bed (3 places hitch: a double and a single bed, even good for a family, we don't ask you to share it with people that you don't know, so you could always have your privacy), and tent in summertime.
    People traveling with their own Van-Camper are super welcome too.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Lorenzo was a member of a volunteer organization for farmers (wwoof) as a host for 2 years before workaway.
    We met when Placida came as a volunteer to Lorenzo, so we know about welcoming new people and cultural exchange.
    Avola is the closest city (5 km) and there's need of a car to move from here to other places. When you’ll arrive we will come to pick you up from the bus/train station if you want (you could even walk if you feel like it :P but is a long steep way ). In Avola you can take buses/trains to the principal cities in the area.
    We are very close to the fantastic Cava Grande natural reserve, the biggest canyon in Europe and quite close to the sea (7 km).
    We share our car with the guests able to drive.
