    Descrição

    Hi, we are Jordie and Yasmine.

    Three years ago Jordie returned to the central Italian countryside after almost 20 years away and abroad working as anthropologist, documentary filmmaker, reporter and transmedia author. After leaving the countryside at 18 he lived and studied in Rome, then left for the UK and during those years also lived shorter periods in Peru, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Madagascar, Cape Verde and Belgium. Then he decided to come back here, to Ficulle, a little medieval town of 1600 inhabitants in the Umbrian hills.

    Yasmine, from the port city of Livorno, is a professional artist printmaker with extensive experience in Italy and the UK. She studied art in Florence and in London where she lived for the past 10 years. Two years ago she started to build her life with Jordie in Valle Libera where she fell in love with him, the dogs, the cats and the place, so she decided to move here.

    Italy is a beautiful but sometimes complicated country to live in, but here is where we decided we want to live a life geared towards quality, surrounded by nature, animals, organic homegrown food and so on.

    We live in a country house and run an organic farm. We grow hazelnuts, spelt, truffles, olives, hemp, artichokes and much more, we have a vegetable garden running all year round and a fruit orchard. The place is surrounded by woodland and a river runs just hundred meters away. The house and surroundings are slowly shaping up, but work is always around the corner and we are looking for a few people that want to spend spring, summer and autumn here to give us a hand :-)

    Having travelled and lived abroad for a long while we now fluently speak Italian, English and Spanish, Jordie also speaks German, his French is decent and he has some basics in Portuguese.

    Unfortunately we can only accept workawayers willing to stay for at least one month, as it always takes time for everyone to adapt and we think shorter periods will not allow for the right time to have a fruitful exchange for both hosts and workawayers.

    We give priority to workawayers that come as a couple and usually host one couple at a time, but sometimes, in busier periods of the year when we need some extra help, we might host up to 4 people.

    We have 2 lovely dogs, 4 cats and 10 chicken. We prefer to not host people with pets, so it doesn’t get too crowded.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Here we hope to share the cultural identity of these hills and valleys shaped by medieval city states in continuous war with each other, leaving a landscape dotted by castles and forts, walled towns sitting on cliffs and antique churches a bit everywhere. Squeezed among the Tuscany of Florence and the Lazio region of Rome, Umbria, dubbed the green heart of Italy, inherits the cultural and architectonic influence of the better know cities and the rolling hills famous in Tuscany, but in my opinion is more authentic in its agricultural traditions, customs and relationship with the land.

    We will share all our knowledge regarding living in the coutryside and different things can be learned depending on the season and the work that needs doing. Work can go from gardening to hazelnut harvest, from tending the growing hemp to preparing limoncello, from collecting wild edible vegetables to cooking the best lasagna ever. Moreover Jordie has a 15 years experience in the media environment, while Yasmine is a brilliant printmaker, so we definitely can share a few professional tips.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    We constantly need some help with a bit of everything, tending the vegetable garden and the animals, pruning, general maintenance, cooking and cleaning, gardening, chopping wood and get stones off the fields, welding, carpentry, photography and web design for some projects we have in mind.

    Living and working in the countryside often means to go with the seasons and the weather. Being here in spring, summer or autumn will change the tasks at hand.

    Unfortunately we can only accept workawayers willing to stay for at least one month, as it always takes time for everyone to adapt and we think shorter periods will not allow for the right time to have a fruitful exchange for both hosts and workawayers.

    We give priority to workawayers that come as a couple and usually host one couple at a time, but sometimes, in busier periods of the year when we need some extra help, we might host up to 4 people.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    We have 2 extra big rooms with private bathroom that are available for workawayers.
    Food is obviously provided and usually we all eat together as a big Italian family :-)
    We are vegetarians and the food we offer is often from our garden. We don’t mind if you want to eat and keep meat or fish in the fridge, just we won’t offer it on our menu.

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    Being in the countryside, having a car is a plus, so that you can be independent. If you have no car it is easy to get here by train to the Fabro-Ficulle train station, which is a 10 min drive from our place and we can easily pick you up. We can obviously drive you to town when you need.
