    End of May to mid August 2020: Help needed to work in forest camping area creating a vibrant vegetable garden, pruning trees, building a hot compost shower, looking after donkeys and full eco restoration of stone building in the forest. All with a view to becoming more and more sustainable in every way at Paladini: if you think of a project to make us all more self-sufficient you can do it.

    We work for two hours each morning from Monday to Friday in a stress-free environment, the rest of the time is yours to enjoy the mountains, scenery, walking & nearby villages. If you want to take the full weekend off to travel and see other parts of Tuscany you can. Artists, carpenters, engineers, and visionaries particularly welcome to develop this wild woodland into a cool living space MUSICIANS of course always popular we sing many evenings late into the night and turn up at local festivals to busk etc.

    In exchange for your work you will have a space in our 6-metre diameter yurt sharing with a maximum of three other people.You will have access to our outdoor kitchen, compost loos, sheltered recreational areas including sauna and solar heated outdoor showers. Please have a look at our Wild Camping Paladini profile on airbnb for more pictures. You are responsible for your own shopping bill and can avail of our local mobile supermarket which turns up once a week, or walk to Castiglione, Pieve or Chiozza for provisions. Volunteers are also welcome to harvest directly from our vegetable garden and fruit trees when in season.

    The camp is located in a chestnut and hazel grove, 300 metres from the nearest point reachable by car, with abundant wild life, sunshine and shade, and more recently eight hens, a rooster and two donkeys. Please contact Colm for details on how to get here.
    Hope to see you soon,

    You will most likely meet people from all over the world. English is the normal language of day to day usage, but Prunecchio is also a good place to practice your Italian as we are very much integrated into the local community, and very few people in the area speak English.
