  • Description


    March 2022 (only pruning no harvest)
    Hello, my name is Pietro and I live and work in germany close to Frankfurt am Main and I travel 2-3x during the year to the my olive grove of my ancestors in order to cultivate, manage the harvest in october and pruning in march onside. I'm looking for volunteers to help me in pruning (harvesting) olive trees in sicily and make a nice and friendly experience on the olive grove.
    I made a very nice experience with an international workaway team in october 2020 & 2021 and would like to repeat with motivated volunteers and friendly people the same experience. (Picking olives and harvesting is a manual work and is not done in 1 day.) The expectation is that volunteers are ready and physically ready to work together in a team and help and support each other. A team with working spirit and harmony will be an unforgettable memory for each participant. Conversation during the work and your stay is highly appreciated.

    Region = Sicily (Italy)
    City = Campofiorito ( close to Corleone )

    Participate and be part of this team in order to see an natural olive grove producing very good and healthy italian olive oil. You are free to explore the area. (If there is an interest we can organize a team activity to visit Corleone on sunday and a visit on a safran field only in autumn.)
    In addition we will visit a farmer and see how it is made original fresh italian ricotta and cheese.
    We will visit in october and the end of the harvest the olive oil mill in the neighbourtown. Permission of the owner need to be given.

    Sightseeing in the town of Campofiorito on sunday could be offered if there is interest and in addition get in contact with local Sicilian people, food, culture
