    I am German and living in the Tuscan countryside for more than 30 years. I am running a ceramic workshop and need help to have more time to do the ceramics. I specifically invite persons who are able and love to do a bit of everything that needs to be done in an old farmhouse on a hectare of land, with a vegetable garden, with wood for the heating and wood for the wood-fired kiln. There are also always small projects for building something or to do another raised bed in the vegetable garden.....landscaping...
    And I am more than happy to have someone to help me in the kitchen preparing vegetarian meals.

    For those who would like to learn Italian, please skip. My Italian is fluent, but not perfect, most of the conversations are in English or German.

    I cannot teach you ceramics!
    But if you are interested in ceramics or art there are plenty possibilities to learn something about clay work.
    And if there is a job in the workshop which can be done by you you are more than welcome to join me.
    I need your help to have more time to spent on doing my ceramics!

    I welcome volunteers who are looking for a long term stay, however I evaluate every week the situation and continue when both of us are happy with each others company/work. There are some jobs which require physically health and strength.

    Please note: I love helping people have an experience of Italy, but I am not able to provide the residency requirement for people looking to become Italian citizens. Sorry!

    The property is surrounded by nature with no visible neighbours. The area is very beautiful. In your time off there are possibilities for trecking, hiking, biking and sightseeing. There are important Etruscan excavation sites in the vicinity, as well as many cultural events, mainly over the summer. The local mountain, offers the opportunity for rock-climbing. Grosseto (35kms), Siena (50kms) and Florence (100kms) can be reached by train or bus.
    Meals will be vegetarian; sometimes there will be some fish or seafood. We will share all meals and you are invited to help preparing. I bake bread with sourdough, eat lots of organic food and vegetables and I love to cook for friends. There is a DVD player and often friends come over for cinematic events.

    At the moment there are jobs with wood - splitting and stacking.
    To control the fence and clear the path going along the fence.

    I am looking for people who are adaptable and hardworking. Who like to help with gardening, maintenance mainly outside, sometimes in the house, cooking..... I am also looking for people who are willing to stay for more than a month. We will evaluate the situation every week and continue when both of us are happy with each others company / work.

    You should be flexible with working times; sometimes we will work on sundays and have the days off during the week. When I am going anywhere you are welcome to join me.

    The place is in the middle of nature; not in the village.
