  • Descripción


    Welcome to a permaculture farm in the east of Sicily. Between the beautiful mountains and the ocean you can find our hidden gem. We aim to be 100% self-sufficient while using different permaculture methods like composting in different ways, mulching our vegetable and fruit garden with different material or building ponds and swale’s to distribute water to our many plants and animals.

    A typical workday starts by taking care of the animals. The different tasks for the rest of the day are depending on the season and on priority. We are quite flexible because we have 2 beautiful children, Liam and Logan, which means we need people who have the ability to work independently. It is important to us that our workaway’ers enjoy to be self-sufficient and that they are good willed and able to pick up tasks and projects. Don’t worry, we will explain everything to you ;)

    On the workdays we have lunch together. We use all the abundance that we have here at Contea and love to incorporate fresh organic produce as much as possible. Hosting vegans unfortunately is quite difficult for us.

    If you would like more information about our farm and the work we do here, contact us and we will try to give you all the information you require.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    The experience will be rich in knowledge on how to prepare various types of compost and on how to manage a site in permaculture in its first years of life, learn about no till gardening, animal care and handling, and various techniques related to eco-construction.

    Our goal is to become an educational farm in the next three years, where, in collaboration with the schools, we will teach the new generations about a style of agriculture, pasture and regenerative and eco-sustainable life, that whoever comes to volunteer with us will benefit from as well.

    We need volunteers of good will to speed up the construction of the site (through the construction of small wooden structures) and for help in the management of composting, grazing, pasturing, pruning, building, gardening.

    We need enterprising people, that want to learn everything about creating, managing and maintenancing a permaculture site in its first years after permaculture design project.

    We have no defined schedules, but we always try to respect the 5 hours per day/5 days a week workaway guideline, so a possible schedule is 9am-3pm with an hour break for lunch in between. That being said, we need people of good will, who are not afraid to work hard and know what to do.

    You will sleep with other guys who are helping us in a tent campsite (directly in the farm) and we will try every day to provide you the best food our farm has to offer (failing that we will purchase organic food), so that you can also help us in cooking and/or preparing meals in our self-sufficient camper kitchen.
    My wife and me don't live in the farm (yet🙂), but everymorning a come to the farm to work, explain and build the site with you.
    We haven't hot water in the farm unfortunatly.
    We have electricity at the farm for any use you need.

    Unfortunately we do not have the possibility to host vegans.
