  • Description


    We are Micòl (49), Arturo (16), Cosimo (13)and Amir (6).

    We believe that , as Michel Odent stated, "You cannot change the world if you don't change the childbirth" and we suggest also the way of educating children.
    So our almost wild land is a supporting space for women children and men to reconnect with the pyshiology of the birth and to experiment non directive education.

    I work as a doula and I spend some of my time unschooling my kids i.e. playing exploring and similar.
    My dream is that my small piece of land becomes a beautiful garden full of flowers,fruits and secret spots where to hide in peace.
    I work as Usborne Indipendent Organiser so I used to participate and organise events as storytelling, workshops, in schools, festivals and so on to sell books and take contacts for future works.Now everything is moved online so I'm grateful to everyone who can help with this.

    We live in a small and simple house in the hill on Cassibile, 10km from siracusa, near the "Riserva Naturale di Cavagrande del Cassibile".
    Details of the works we would like to do are below.Apart from this we consider 'cleaning' something that is on everyone who lives the house.

    We have water only from the rain so we ask to our hosts to be very careful in using it.
    That's why I ask you to use a compost toilet and an external shower where the water is recycled.
    I sometimes ask also to use external kitchen being sometimes hard to fulfill my little one needs of calm and rest when people are around.
    We want to host people:
    -who understand that we are sharing the house so we clean common spaces together or with turns
    - who tries to respect and use carefully food, water, electricity by not wasting them

    Italian speakers are very much welcomed from my kids!!!
    We don't smoke and prefer to host no smokers.
    Bring your musical instrument if you play....we need you so much!!!

    WE live with 2 dogs and a cat at the moment
