Torino

Summer List
We are Giorgio and Elena, we grow organic fruit on about 4 hectares of land on the slopes of Punta Quinzeina, in Canavese, 50km north of Turin. We produce several varieties of apples, hazelnuts, strawberries, mulberries and various types of summer fruit in smaller quantities. We cultivate a small garden close to home for our own personal consumption. We will soon open up a small fruit processing workshop, and in the future we will start to keep hens and introduce bees. We also garden for private customers. WWOOFers can help us with various tasks in the orchards and in the garden according to the season. We also need help in the kitchen (Elena has been baking sourdough bread and making kefir for a few months). From April to December we can offer a room in our home with a one and a half person bed (for one person or two who want to sleep together). From August to October, if the room is already occupied, we can arrange a bed in the living room (1 person) or a tent in the garden. We live with two dogs in the house, so guests should not be afraid of dogs. Our land is about 4-5 km from the house, which can be reached by car. Walking takes about an hour to the nearest orchard. We speak English and French. We love cultural exchange and we hope to establish a good relationship with who ever comes here, going beyond the simple offer of help but being an experience that can enrich us humanly. Guests can go hiking near the house or in the Gran Paradiso National Park, an ideal destination for climbers and mountaineers.
We are Laura, Paolo and our four children. We live in Bibiana in a farmhouse at the foot of the mountains overlooking the Pinerolo plain. We have about fifty beehives, a cherry orchard in production, a growing apple orchard, scattered walnut and chestnut trees, some crops in the hills, chicken run, family vegetable garden, geese and a pony that helps with the work. Laura is forester and teacher, Paolo is an agronomist and integrates business with lessons, professional jobs and projects in the field of environmental education. Looking for a more sustainable agriculture and way of life we ​​have gradually abandoned the use of synthetic products in plant care and this year, after the conversion period, we are certified organic. The farm is small and, since it was born as a beekeeping farm, it does not have much mechanization. So many jobs are manual or with small mechanical means. Trying to reconcile agronomic training with the fascinating ideas of M. Fukuoka, we are interested in permaculture experimenting with it in the vegetable garden and on the arable land. We have transformed a part of our farm into camping for tents and picnic area (we are on FB as Agricampeggio La Tadea). We host Wwoofers in a separate room with bathroom. We ask for collaboration with harvesting and with maintenance of crops and the apiary. At least one of us speaks some English, French, Spanish and German. Wifi available.
I live here with my partner in the hills of Torino, in a beautiful place close to the town and the woods of Superga. I am a man in my 60 s and I take care of the plants, experimenting with cultivation in open fields. I decided to collaborate with WWOOF to have some help and also to share my knowledge and experience. Accommodation is in a small caravan and small wooden houses. My wife helps me morally but physically I do the work myself. I cultivate stevia, perilla, okra and hemp and gather nettles. I speak French and a little English, and I can always learn. Torino is a wonderful city to visit and public transport is 10 minutes from our house, the city will be holding Expo 2015 and there are many interesting places to visit there. I work with the principles of awareness, art and love of nature. I ask you to help with jobs on the farm such as repotting, weeding, harvesting etc. We can host from April to October.
This farm is located on a beautiful plain in Canavese, about 20 km north of Turin and 15 km south of Ivrea. We are a group of about twenty adults and eight children that live in an old farmhouse renovated using green building techniques. Some of us are directly involved in running the farm, others have different activities. Our group is part of the D., Federation of Communities’ which was founded in 1975, which is experimenting with a social model based on ethical and spiritual values ​expressed through work and art. We rear 100 cattle and produce all the grains needed for their maintenance, as well as for ourselves. We have vegetable gardens and greenhouses for the cultivation of organic vegetables, a small chicken coop and, seasonally, some pigs. We also run a restaurant, as part of our Agritourism project, by reservation only. Accommodation in single or double rooms, in a prefabricated wooden house near the barn. Some of us speak English, some speak French, Spanish and others German. WWOOFers can help mainly in the vegetables garden and vineyard. We can accommodate you between March and October. Help is also needed in the animal stalls and in the house. We cultivate several vineyards and everyone helps with the grape harvest in autumn. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the farm.

Ciao, we have a small farm in the low mountains near the Sacra di San Michele. Our farm is woodland close to the mountain where generations of people have constructed large terraces. We came to live here ten years ago and we grow vegetables mainly using hand tools and farming methods inspired Fukuoka, integrating synergistic with Bio intensive and where possible traditional methods. We have bees (20 hives) and chickens. Soon we will also have donkeys. We clear in the woods to keep warm and to give fertility to our vegetable garden. In addition to agricultural activities we are constantly renovating buildings and shelters, fences, greenhouses and other buildings. We would like to accommodate people interested in working with us in our many activities, to learn as much as possible from our farm and be willing to share knowledge. M. has an outside job too. The place is isolated, but you can reach the nearest town Giaveno, in 50 minutes on foot or 10 mins by car. We offer simple accommodation on the farm. The minimum period of stay is two weeks. We can host people from April to September. We speak English (Carlo) and both a little French.
Summer List
My husband and I breed alpaca in the Valle Sacra, alto Canavese, we are at 1000 mt surrounded by chestnut and hazel woods. We have an alpaca farm, our main activity is animal welfare, including care of the pasture, maintenance of stalls and fences, weed eradication, storing manure and daily care. The spring is the time to shear the alpaca. The fibre, which is very fine and of high quality, is then worked by hand using ancient instruments and with full respect for ecology, up to the packaging of the soft balls of wool with the wheel spool. During the summer there are the births and new born to care for. Our business absorbs us completely, and there is not much time for social life. We have a couple of vegetable gardens that allow us to consume vegetables grown using the principles of permaculture. The only fertilizer used is alpaca which has superb qualities. In the autumn we take care of our forests and prepare the wood we will need next year to warm up. In addition to alpaca we have three dogs and two cats. In this area telephone communication is difficult and discontinuous, we do not have wifi and we try to moderate contact with electromagnetic waves. We can accommodate people who would like to share with us the days in an apartment where there is a large bedroom with a good view, with bathroom annex, below a kitchen. What we want to propose is meeting new people with the mutual exchange of knowledge and reality and also to teach the ancient art of spinning wool.
