Verona

This is a multipurpose Agricultural Centre for dogs and sheep immersed in the Lessinia Rational Park at about a thousand meters and 25 km from the center of Verona. On our farm we breed Brogne sheep, a local breed of sheep that live free in pasture, between a transhumance, respecting their nomadic nature. We process the wool and milk with natural and organic methods and keep the lambs as pets. We breed and train Swiss sheepdogs and two rare and preserved local mountain breeds of sheepdog for the management of the flocks and herds. The dogs, which are a dozen, are to be understood to be members of the family and the puppies that we save or that are born here for us are the mascots of the garden and always in close contact with us. The Agricultural Fund winds around the exclusive district, on the top of a hill, surrounded by woods and meadows, in a valley with mountain views. We are in the process of creating a project that will include a boarding kennel for dogs and cats, an educational farm and accommodation for guests and customers taking advantage of the opportunities offered in the high mountains. In the house that is adjacent, we, Silvia, 28 and Alessandro, 20, live. We are looking for people who want to share this work fairly and responsibly with us, to take care of our animals with us and to always strive to improve their environment, to help them grow and take care of them, to educate them and contribute to all the projects we carry out day by day.
This farm is situated at an altitude of 450m in the foothills of Monte Baldo. There are about 3 has of woodland and a stone house where we create, design and cook with dormice for company! We have a breeze from and panorama of Lake Garda which is 5 kms from the farm. Wwoofing and PDC in permaculture were decisive for the recovery of this place, whose indelible mark became the seed of the "Le Gilde del Bosco" project: an ecosystem of people who, through a new economy, pursue a shared self-sufficiency and a new well-being, applying the ethics and principles of permaculture. And so, the forest and the house became the first seat of this experimentation. The place is open to those who want to participate in its foundation and those who want to try their hand at a project to share. We live in the city and go there on average three times a week. A wwoofer that wants to experience "wild", even in solitude, wants to engage with us in the search for low-tech solutions, to test its creativity, to develop together self-production, cultural and cooperation projects, here it finds fertile ground . A compost toilet, an outdoor shower and, for sleeping, a place on the mezzanine or the whole forest with a tent and a hammock, are the conveniences. We collect rainwater that we will learn to filter for domestic uses; in the meantime we stock up on the potable one with a series of cans. The place, about 700 m from the village, can be reached by an off-road vehicle and a short path. We speak English, but mine is little more than a scholastic.
This is our and our 3 childrens’ (2005, 2010 e 2016) farm and life project. The house has a magnificent view over the Padana plain and we are restoring it to its original state (artists are especially welcome!) using green building techniques. We hope that you will help us to bring this farm back to life, rebuilding with us the neglected barns with straw bales, cleaning the dry stone walls, planting, in the synergic vegetable garden. We also have some chickens, 3 dogs, 4 cats, a tortoise and 3 beehives! We make honey, cheese, sourdough bread baked in our wood burning oven, jams and juices, and other products using local wild herbs which we would love your help with. The area is full of paths for walks or mountain biking, and nearby you can visit Bolca, the Ilasi valley, Giazza and Verona is 35 kms away. Vegetarians and omnivores are welcome, accommodation in shared room or tent as preferred. We speak good English.
