    **READ CAREFULLY BEFORE APPLYING**

    The permaculture project (NON PROFIT) develops in the social, historical and urban fabric of the town of Modica (RG), mainly between the Fontana, Dente and Pennino districts. We actively collaborate with other projects in the province, from which we learn a lot.

    We live a sober, frugal, healthy life. We follow, in a somewhat radical way, the ethics of Permaculture and many of its principles. After a period of training in horticulture and spiritual reconnection in the Loire in a Sōtō Zen temple, a PDC at Il Filo di Paglia (Comiso) and two years of agricultural experiences of the most varied in south-eastern Sicily, we feel ready to open ourselves to volunteers , willing and passionate who want to live, even if only for a week or two, with us.

    We've just (October 2022) got a 17th century house for the project, a bit run down and quite abandoned for more than one year:
    Plenty of work in progress!
    A lot of fixing has already been done with the help of a professional (a good bathroom with hot water is already giving comfort to us all; the shower has no curtains for now and therefore the floor around needs to be dry-mop after usage). More fixing around was done by a very tall slovenian guest (as per Thur. 3rd Nov.)
    Some major cleaning and painting in many rooms has been done with the help of the first volunteers, only one more big room (the chilling-room, not fit for purpose yet) needs painting and artistic painting in the future. The kitchen is now working and it serves everybody as a chilling room too (for choice there is no fridge, all the fresh produces are bought and eaten day by day!)
    At the moment we are equipped with an electric stove, grill with charcoal and refrigeration system for food in terracotta pots.
    There is a Laundry 3 walking minutes from home, you can also hand-wash, hand-washing soap provided.
    A solar oven, a bricks oven, a chicken coop, a wooden-glass plant nursery from scraps, are coming soon.

    On Tuesday morning and Thursday morning we participate in the Social Garden project of the Mental Health Department, Public Hospital, in the Sorda district. We are very keen to nurture human relationships, of mutual help and network, between the inhabitants of the neighborhoods in which we are present, between different agricultural and / or permaculture projects with which we actively collaborate.

    Our agriculture: urban, natural, manual, itinerant, regenerative, self-sufficient, mostly in the economy of the gift, food sovereignty and seed sovereignty, experimental. To move and for transport we use bicycles, cargo-bikes, we walk a lot in the beautiful alleys and streets of the city and countryside.
    We love Low-tech solutions and communicate through letters, both paper and electronic; text messages and calls are used sparingly (using an old Nokia = absence of modern Apps).

    We love good food and two or three times during the week we indulge in a couple of goodies from the Modica rotisserie and a breakfast with granita and brioche :P
    Fresh pasta is often at the table, we eat very vegetarian and the meat is consumed almost only on Sunday lunch.

    Time and energy are resources that we care to preserve and use with abundance, therefore we require seriousness, organization and concentration. Precision in communication.
    Good present moment, we hope to experience many with you.

    **SILENCE POLICY: after midnight and until 8:30 the house will be as noiseless as possible; everybody has the right to sleep well**
    ***AGE TOPIC: applications from 24+ years old preferred: unfortunately, proved by personal experience/collection of data;
    Unfortunately too many unreliable young people in these days (cancelling last minute; joining then leaving much earlier than agreed).
    **Be considerate of the effort, planning, energy, time, emotional commitment, kindness and goodwill of the people you are contacting.
    Otherwise your crave for adventure and travel, mixed with unreliability, can become a true nightmare for the host.***

    Il progetto di permacultura *NON PROFIT* si sviluppa nel tessuto sociale, storico ed urbano della cittadina di Modica (RG), principalmente tra i quartieri Fontana, Dente, Pennino. Collaboriamo attivamente con altri progetti in provincia, da cui impariamo molto.
    Viviamo una vita sobria, frugale, sana. Seguiamo, in modo un poco radicale, le etiche della Permacultura e molti dei suoi principi.
    Dopo un periodo di formazione in orticoltura e di riconnessione spirituale in Loira in un tempio Sōtō Zen, un PDC presso Il Filo di Paglia (Comiso) e due anni di esperienze agricole delle più varie in Sicilia sud orientale, ci sentiamo pronti ad aprirci a volontari, volenterosi ed appassionati che vogliano vivere, anche solo per una settimana, insieme a noi.

    Dai primi giorni di Ottobre abbiamo finalmente disponibile la casa, un po' malridotta e abbandonata nell'ultimo anno:
    molti lavoretti già in corso d'opera.
    Il bagno è stato ripristinato da un professionista e c'è l'acqua calda per il comfort di tutti. Alcune pulizie importanti in alcune stanze sono giù state eseguite con l'aiuto dei volontari; ci saranno altre pulizie da fare.
    Abbiamo a disposizione dei bagni con acqua calda, la doccia al momento è aperta e bisogna asciugare il pavimento dopo l'utilizzo.
    Anche la cucina è funzionale (per scelta manca il frigorifero, tutti i cibi freschi sono comprati e mangiati nella giornata!)
    A presente abbiamo a disposizione un sistema di refrigerazione in vasi di terracotta, due fornelletti elettrici, grill con carbonella. Un forno solare, un forno tradizionale a legna, il pollaio, un vivaio da infissi legno-vetro recuperati, dovrebbero arrivare nei prossimi tempi.

    Il martedì mattina e giovedì mattina partecipiamo al progetto di Orto Sociale del Dipartimento Salute Mentale nel quartiere Sorda.
    Teniamo molto a nutrire le relazioni umane, di mutuo aiuto e di rete, tra gli abitanti dei quartieri in cui siamo presernti, tra le realtà che ospitano, tra diversi progetti agricoli e/o di permacultura con cui collaboriamo attivamente.
    La nostra agricoltura: urbana, naturale, manuale, itinerante, rigenerativa, di autosufficienza, per la maggiore in economia del dono, evolutiva, di sovranità alimentare e di sovranità sementiera, sperimentale.
    Per spostarci e per i trasporti usiamo biciclette, cargobike, camminiamo molto nei bellissimi vicoli e stradine della città e di campagna.

    Amiamo le soluzioni Low-tech e comunicare tramite lettere, sia cartacee che elettroniche; gli sms e le chiamate vengono usati, con parsimonia. (SMS e chiamate usando un vecchio Nokia = assenza di Apps moderne)

    Amiamo il buon cibo e due o tre volte durante la settimana ci concediamo un paio di chicche della rosticceria modicana e una colazione con granita e brioscia :P
    La pasta fresca è spesso a tavola, mangiamo molto vegetariano e la carne viene consumata pressapoco solo nel pranzo domenicale.
    Il tempo e l'energia sono risorse che teniamo a custodire ed impiegare con dovizia, richiediamo pertanto serietà, organizzazione e concentrazione. Precisione nel comunicare.
    Buon attimo presente, speriamo di viverne molti insieme a te.

    *Watering, is all done by hand, in an active attitude: observing and taking care of each plant and living being.
    *Seedling, there is a plant nursery, we avoid buying ready to plant seedlings from the agro-industry.
    *Weeding, although we like to keep as much beneficial biodiversity in the fields, sometimes time-consuming weeding is necessary: and occasional :P .
    Technology and Transportation: We run a low-tech and slowkind of life, in the meantime we participate in many different community focused projects in Modica and around, moving only by bicycle, by train, by feet.
    *Cooking/Foodies topic: Fresh pasta, Arancini, Ricotta, Scacce Modicane, Cannoli siciliani, Modican chocolate, are all in the house!
    *Relaxing: help us focusing on the "here and now", enjoy every single moment, without stress or toxic behaviour.

    I love my native language Italian, and I love to speak both french and English. I had the chance to live in France and french-spoken countries for a few years and I lived in U.K. for about one year and half. I keep reading books, watching movies in Original Language. Sicilian language is quite fun too.
