Hi. We are Saci and Annalisa, a gay British/Italian family with two kids, aged 5 and 8. We are looking for volunteers to help us set up our non-profit resilient living centre on the Italian Riviera. We are looking for self-reliant folk, as the project is in early experimental stages . There's plenty of opportunity to try a bunch of different things! If you like the sound of a fun, creative and educational experience, then why not get in touch?
We both have a long background in teaching, artistic, literary and community projects. Saci is an award-winning writer. Annalisa has been involved in many creative community projects in London and Italy, including setting up a forest nursery for local children on our property. English is the common language spoken.

Liguria is a wonderful place, with a rich and interesting culture. The Maritime Alps are in the southwestern part of the Alps, and the area is famous for its glorious beaches, excellent weather and unique eco system. Hiking, kayaking, cycling, whale watching… we’ve got it all! We are very close to the Italian border, and roughly 1.5 hours from both Nice and Genova. There are many interesting and alternative villages in the area. You will have plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas about one planet living, European eco village networks, and creative cultural dissent.
We are a relaxed and sociable bunch. We expect you to do your share of work, and then have yourselves a good time. We are open to people of all nationalities and gender.

We have recently moved into our property, a renovated rustico, set on 21,000 sq. metres of land, abundant in olive, fig and orange trees, plus dozens of baby fruit trees, vines, and aromatic herbs. In this first phase, we need help to maintain and clear the land, to renovate and build new structures, and assistance with childcare duties/tutoring.
We are learning by experimenting with permaculture, no dig and most of all composting; if you have knowledge and experience nourishing soil please come and help us.
Other needs are weeding, pruning, mulching, repairing drystone walls, laying paths and general maintenance. Artists and cultural collaborators are also welcome!

We have good WIFI. We can help with basic office space.
