Chieti

We, Luca and Samanta, live in the countryside near the city of Chieti, with our beautiful dog Camilla .... We only took the house last year because our dream has always been to cultivate the land and live off the products we grow and transform. This dream is gradually turning into reality and with it our wish that this hobby becomes everyday life. Today we work and we can devote little time to this new experience. We have just over 1 hectare with a small vineyard, and an olive grove and a number of fig plants. We grow a vegetable garden, saffron and many other small things. For now we are learning and we really want to learn and share experiences in this wonderful world. Self-sustainability is a step in the short term and in part we are already succeeding. We would like to host people who can help us in the small jobs in the countryside, in the arrangement of the house. We would like to host for short periods. Guests would have a lot of free time because we both work.  We would have the possibility to host in a triple room with a bathroom but also the possibility to pitch a tent or a camper. We are ready to welcome you and we can not wait to share our experiences.
We are a young couple Mattia & Clara, about a year ago we bought an old farmhouse with land in the mountains in ​​Sarsina, an enchanting place surrounded by nature far away from the smog and bustle of the city. Here we live together with Mattias mother Miriam, who gives us a hand with the housework, Clara has an outside job during the week. We are at the beginning of our adventure, it's all under construction and in the making, we cultivate the land experimenting techniques in harmony with nature, preserving the humus and biodiversity of the place, working with nature rather than exploiting it: a project in permaculture. We have 6 ha of arable land and 30 of coppice. In winter, the main work involves cutting in the forest, in the spring we will begin to cultivate the land for the production of fresh vegetables which we will sell. Every Wednesday we make sourdough bread with ancient grains. On rainy days, we dedicate ourselves to building chores at home, creating recycled objects, making preserves and home cooking. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and some hens for eggs. Near the house there are several trekking trails, and we are a few kilometers from beautiful waterfalls. WWOOFers are accommodated in a very nice double room, in the summer there is the possibility of camping in the pine forest below the house. There is a meditation room open to all. We have a mainly vegetarian diet. We speak Italian and some English.
This project to repopulate the countryside in Abruzzo started on 4 ha of agricultural land that we, Nicolas (42) and Federica (40) bought 5 years ago near Tufillo in the province of Chieti (30 km from sea, 550 m above sea level). Our production, for now, is olive oil, eggs, medical herbs, cereals, legumes and vegetables, especially vegetables that can be stored easily throughout the year like garlic and pumpkins. The growing conditions are quite arid, but we manage to adapt and to improve various techniques. We have olive oil from trees that are not ours, harvesting collectively. Currently we have 4 rooms with 10 beds in 3 different houses, one in the village, 2 km away, and 2 in the countryside. We have electricity and a washing machine. We do not have television, refrigerator, dishwasher or swimming pool. In collaboration with the architect Rainer Toshikazu Winter and the University of Florence, we built a passive energy house in 2013 that we use as an artistic laboratory and for hospitality. Guests can also sleep in tent or in tent-like huts constructed using mainly locally available materials (clay, stone, wood). We have many contacts with similar projects in the region and participate in political activities against oil drilling and combustion of biomass. Recently we started to study the chopped wood technique (BRF) and would like to see this technique spread on a large scale to reconstruct stable humus in agricultural soil. how to get there: by airplane or by railway You can choose between Roma and Pescara. From Pescara You will have to go by train to Vasto - San Salvo. There are busses from Vasto Terminal to Tufillo or from San Salvo - Pilkinton to Bivio Tufillo. (There are also busses from Termoli to Bivio Tufillo if, from Pescara, You are on a train that doesn't stop at Vasto - San Salvo). From Roma Tiburtina You can take a bus that goes - over Isernia - t
Our is a very small farm: 13000 m2 on the outskirts of the city of Vasto. Contrary to what you would think the area is very silent and the land unspoiled. For forty years (the time when we bought it) it has been worked organically. We were initially enrolled for several years at the SUOLO E SALUTE for official organic recognition. Currently my husband and I are retired and we need help the fields which we have from friends and paid workers. The jobs are: maintenance of the green around the house, cleaning of the chicken and the rabbit to increase the fertilizer, watering the new olive trees, harvesting the olives in October, working in the garden. The accommodation offered is in a single room close to our rooms. It is possible to reach the centre of town by foot in 15 minutes. WiFi. We are accustomed to hosting in our family and are welcoming in a simple and natural way Help in the countryside is important, but what we care most about is the cultural exchange and the transmission of the WWOOF principles to high school students for whom we would like to prepare alternatives to School-Work.
Io (Luisa, 46) e il mio compagno (Fabio, 32) abbiamo 2 ettari di terreno in un’area collinare, a ca 20 km dal mare e altrettanti dalla montagna (Parco Nazionale della Majella). Qui sono presenti un centinaio di olivi secolari, fichi , noci, mandorli e altri alberi da frutto (ogni anno ne mettiamo a dimora un po’), zone boschive (soprattutto querceti), piante aromatiche ed officinali, orti di vario tipo. Abbiamo anche alcuni animali: un cavallo, galline, polli e tacchini, cani, un gatto e, da pochissimo, due famiglie di api. Produciamo per il nostro fabbisogno e vendiamo/scambiamo piccole quantità di prodotti, oltre a saponi e cosmetici naturali, in mercati locali dell’autoproduzione. Da poco abbiamo comprato una casa a poche decine di metri dal terreno, mentre sullo stesso sono presenti un camper e una roulotte, in cui abbiamo abitato prima di entrare in possesso della casa. I wwoofer possono alloggiare in casa con noi o nella roulotte e nel camper, a seconda delle preferenze e del periodo. I nostri lavori sono molteplici: c’è la cura degli animali e degli orti, la raccolta e trasformazione di frutta e verdura, la legna, la preparazione di saponi e prodotti erboristici. Oltre ai lavori di routine nei mesi primaverili siamo impegnati con la raccolta ed essiccazione delle erbe officinali e preparazione di macerati, in estate raccolta pomodori e fichi, conserve, in autunno se la stagione è propizia, c’è la raccolta delle olive e la propagazione delle piante officinali per talea, in inverno con la messa a dimora di nuovi alberi da frutto e di piante officinali. Abbiamo poi tanti piccoli progetti (autocostruzione, falegnameria, giardinaggio…) che ci piacerebbe condividere con i nostri ospiti e che riguardano la sistemazione del terreno e la creazione di strutture per rendere il posto più bello, comodo e accogliente.
We are in Casacanditella in the province of Chieti. This is a small farm run by Anna and Piero. We produce oil, jams and various vegetables. We are trying to create a larger project, which includes food, energy and social self-sufficiency. We are developing a Agricampeggio project that will host small groups of people in nature and within which to organize personal growth events (courses, yoga, meditation, nutrition, health). Our house is 10 minutes walk from the fields. We can accommodate in 2/3 bed rooms.
