  • Description


    We are a community project based on permaculture, deep ecology and agro - ecology principles. The project started few years ago but since 2016 we're in this valley, home, in the Park of Madonie.
    We are involved in several small project and activities.
    We live in community producing food for our consume and some surplus. We're restoring a land abandoned for years and every step is a new step. We produce extra virgin olive oil and some products of natural cosmethics with officinals plants based on olive oil. We're an association, organising and promoting cultural events based on a culture of sustainability. We promote also trekkings in the Park, host workshop and retreat on yoga and health ecological and spititual practices.
    We're part of sicilian permaculture network.

    We live in a great wood with running water through streams at 800 m.
    Summer is great ... the other seasons, too ...
    Since our hosting is in open area you are asked to come prepared for mountain experience. Some umidity is there and cold can arrive in night time.
    We have a tent and an area dedicated to our volunteers ... but if you bring your tent is great!
    Toilets and showers are in the main house.

    We have a nice garden which provide part of the veggies we eat. Other parts of our diet come from the same territory of Madonie mostly. Local, organic food supporting local economies and practices. The community all is asked to partecipate in garden activities and food preparation and cleaning. We use to eat together for our meals ... exceptions for some of us working elsewhere. The meal shared (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is a basic organic meal. If someone would like to have special things (cheese, wine ...), we can arrange on the site...
