    Only in October 2022 for olive 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 (pruning) harvesting olive trees in sicily and make a nice and friendly experience on the olive grove.

    I made a several nice experiences with many international workawayers 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 motivated and able physically ready to work together in a team and help and support each other.

    In addition we'll stay together in a house and prepare and cook our own food (vegetarian). Also everybody helps out for doings things in the household e g. put & staple the fire food, cleaning rooms, cleaning bathrooms, kitchen & dishes, removing weeds or other plants around the house or the olive grove, bringing/moving the firewood to the fireplace (living room) and prepare it for the evenings.
    Repairing the damaged fences or fixing new fences and also repair different stuff or something around the house or the olive grove.

    A team with working spirit and harmony will be an unforgettable memory for each participant. Conversation and cultural exchanges during the day and work during your stay is highly appreciated.

    Date: October 2022
    Region = Sicily (Italy)
    City = Campofiorito ( close to Corleone )
