  • Descripción


    Hello, we are Milena and Emilio, 34 and 39 years old. We have a very beautiful land in Castelluzzo, near Trapani, sicilian west coast. We have mostly olive trees, and we produce olive oil for our own consumption. We start the olives harvest at the beginning of october. It's a beatiful farming ritual, we wake up at dawn and we work until the afternoon. We eat togheter and share the effort, songs, foods and words.
    We can host 2 people or also families with children for 2 weeks. We live in a yurta, where we have the frigo and the kitchen, so you can cook with us or on you own, anyway our kitchen is available for you. We can host you in a camping tent. The bathroom is outside and is a wood compost toilet with shower outside (we are providing now for hot water). We need help for agricultural activities like bio-shredding, stones removal, mulch, composter and also for some carpentry activity like building the cooking shelf. Our land is situated in an amazing and wild part of Sicily, we requires 4 o 5 hours of help a day at sunrise or at sunset, because during the day is so hot that the only thing you can do is going to the sea, the most beautiful sea of the Sicily!
    We have a 6 years old child so we also are available to host families with 2 children maximum. Meals are shared, we can organize to cook together or sometimes not, anyway we will provide a food equipped kitchen with fresh and biological vegetables.

    Workers will live in a big yurta (65 mq!), so you will experiment a different way to live in and to sleep. You will learn the basic permaculture practices, like bio-shredding, preserving the wood for the winter, mulch to protect the plants from heat. Also we need people who help us with general maintenance like to impregnate the wood. We are artists, we work with the cinema and we like to play the guitar and sing, so we often organize little concerts in the yurta with friends of our community.

    We are at the beginning of our permaculture and medicinal herbs farm, so there are a lot of priorities. We just produce olive oil for our consumption, we still aren't a business activity, so we can't offer a monetary payment. In autumn we need help to pick the olives and bring them the crusher. In summer, we need creative and propositive people, who can help us also with farm design, socials, disposal of pruning, etc. Animals are not welcome, not yet because plants are still smalls. We don't have internet wi-fi, and we use the water well to cook, wash, shower and water the plants, so we require to not waste it, because during the summer it rarely rains.

    In the yurta the are 3 beds and the kitchen, it's an open space. It's like sleeping in a spaceship! You will watch the stars from the dome, it's a quiet place, 400m far from the sea with beautiful mountains around the sea. You can cook on your own, or sometimes we will have dinner or lunch together, we live in an house 5 minutes far from the yurta. The toilet in outside, but is very comfortable.
