Sicilia

As artists we learn to live in the country. Ciao my name is Roby, I do not have a farm, I am fascinated by creativity and have made it my job, in 2016 I started with permaculture I have a summer job and live most of the year in the country, but in July, August and September I am not here. Here you will find beautiful coloured hills that offer spectacular sunsets and rainbows, as the stars at night. Activities are: construction using natural materials (mud bricks, straw bales, stones, wood, etc ). The olive harvest from October to December (to make oil, paté, etc.), pruning fruit trees (when the moon is waning), in the synergic garden, seeding grain / old varieties, legumes, beans, peas, soybeans, chickpeas etc .. harvesting grapes (for wine making as it once was, crushing the grapes with our feet, etc ...) and all the fruit that the countryside offers: figs, prickly pears, persimmons, apples, quince, almond, rose hips, etc ... we make jams, cakes, bread, pizza, pasta etc ... all on a small scale for self sufficiency, we collect and cut the wood to keep warm and cook, we eat wild vegetables in season. My land is 60 km from the sea, near the natural park of the Madonie, the station is nearby. The house is small but comfortable, bathroom, hot water, has a bedroom and a shared living room, there is internet connection for email and some research. For any info it’s better to telephone, I speak bad English, and a little French and Spanish, see you soon.
This farm, organic for 20 years, is located in a quiet valley crossed by two streams, and consists of 5 ha of orchards (citrus, apricots, persimmons, loquats, and many other species) and approximately 10 ha of uncultivated land. The work includes harvesting, pruning, clearing and in the vegetable garden. It is situated 3 km from Noto (SR). We often go into the town and happily take WWOOFers, although you can also easily walk. The accommodation is in a single or shared room. Stays of at least a week by prior arrangement The meals are macrobiotic and we use only organic produce. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome. We eat together in the large kitchen in the house.

Warning! This is an isolated and free place! We Eckhard (1946), 3 cats: and every 3 weeks my daughters Aiin (2004) and Jade (2007) live our simple self-sufficient lifestyle (electricity and water). We offer a "brainwashing" that is detached from the life of total consumption, stress, the latest fashions, the lights of the city, from the noise of the cars ... being away from this commercial lifestyle, opens your senses and your heart .. enabling you to find your road while in our magical and powerful valley. We are working (!) on this to find a balance, between the needs of the people here (vegetable garden, comfort, culture) and nature. There is enough space: 14 ha carob trees, olive trees, almond trees, fruit trees (figs, oranges, lemons, avocados, nuts, apricots, pistachio, pomegranates, persimmons, apples), fields of wheat, vineyards and of course many brambles, a good spring, the vegetable garden throughout the year, a natural swimming pool, a sauna, a solar shower, solar drier and a hexagonal wooden kitchen, bathroom and a compost WC. Accommodation is in a wooden house for 2 people and a house which has been rebuilt using green methods which can accommodate 4 more people.
I'm a Belgian immigrate, who has been in Sicily for years now. I took on an abandoned house in the country and we want to produce all the fruit, vegetables and legumes I and others need for food self-sufficiency. Aside from that, I would also like to introduce poultry for home consumption and actually I'm able to host tourists. I still would like to build a workshop for processing dry fruits and vegetables The house is mainly restored, and the fields, orchards and gardens are partially planted, some are growing and some still have to be planted. For now, WWOOFers are hosted in a dormitory in the main house. We always eat together and we are open to all diets. I speak Italian, French and English. You can reach us by public transport to Modica where I can pick you up. The nearest village is 4 km from home where there are all the basic shops. Nearby, you can visit the Cava d'Ispica, Cava Paradiso, Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto. I'm working towards a type of agriculture and simple living based on self and economic autonomy. I know that 100% would be a utopia, but we try to get close, to prove that you can live well with a self-managed work.. 
We are a small farm, located in the characteristic Modica countryside, in addition to the domestic vegetable garden we produce small capers and olive oil productions, all strictly organic, the nearest village, Modica, is 3 km away, the sea is 20 minutes away of car.

This is an association, a project and an agricultural reality devoted to self-sufficiency where, since 2011, people live, design, build and cultivate following the principles and ethics of Permaculture. Our main productions are Oranges, Lemons, Oil, Vegetables, Eggs, Fruit. The help we ask the volunteers is mainly in the fruit harvest, in the maintenance and management of the gardens, but also in the day-to-day management of the project itself and its structures, always remaining open to new contributions and new collaborations of various types, social and entrepreneurial. The project defines itself as a "farming community" because several people are actively involved in the management of orchards, vegetable gardens, Spirulina cultivation, preparation of biocosmetics and bioconstructions. We offer beds in caravans / caravans all year round or even summer tents from Glamping. The food is mainly vegetarian, we cook in turns even with guests who know and want to cook to always discover new recipes and we all like to eat together Right next to our land is the Simeto River, but the proximity to Etna and Catania are certainly a point of interest for our guests.
This is a collective project of 7 friends and a girl located in the heart of the Madonie Regional Park, in Sicily. A project based on the principles of sustainability, permaculture, ecology and transition. Among our activities, we take care of the farm that hosts us (a farmhouse located in a six-hectare wooded area), we produce small agricultural productions (we take care of a vegetable garden mainly for self-production and an olive grove), productions of natural teas and cosmetics, we work in the field of environmental education and youth exchanges. The jobs that WWOOF members will be involved in are the management of the garden and / or the creation of new horticultural areas, harvesting and processing of fruit, maintenance and cleaning of the forest. Our work is also linked to the management of events and courses. Travelers will be accommodated in a camping area near the house and will be able to use the common areas of the house (where some of us live) and all the common outdoor areas (internal kitchen, living room, bathroom with shower). We prefer to host from May to October, a period in which the climate is usually optimal for camping. The nearest town, the charming Polizzi Generosa (about 8 km away from Porto di Terra, there is no public transport to reach it), can be reached from Palermo and from Cefalù by bus (some daily routes). From there we would come to pick you up at your arrival, and accompany you if you want your day off, and you can go to the sea or the city. Even the territory where we are offers you the possibility of discovery, you can take breathtaking treks in the Madonie Park either independently or together with a guide who is part of our team or explore the picturesque villages of the surrounding area.
A small rural hamlet, surrounded by forest, composed of small houses grouped around the main structure, which was born as a village of transhumance remains an open place. Today it hosts an Environmental Education Centre, accredited by the WWF, the MIUR and the Ente Parco delle Madonie and managed by the Palma Nana cooperative. We have been operating for more than 35 years, 5 km from the city of Cefalù. The nearest village (within walking distance) is Sant'Ambrogio where buses arrive (Sommatinese) from the Cefalù train station (Trenitalia). Contact us and within 3 days Giuseppe, the manager of the C.E.A. or Franca will reply. Our work follows the seasons: we host school groups in spring and adventure camps during the summer. We work mainly with children but also with adults: we organize weekends in nature, international exchanges and training courses. We cultivate two synergistic gardens, we have a chicken house and lots of green spaces. The volunteers will be assigned different tasks, depending on the needs of the structure and the vocation of the volunteer: from work in the garden, to maintenance of the structure, to help in the kitchen, work schedules are organized during meetings. The volunteers will share the daily life and work both with the manager and with the different workers. We offer lifts to the sea, Cefalù or Sant'Ambrogio and all the help you need for organizing your time off to discover the wonders of the island. Volunteers will be hosted in a part of the structure dedicated to the staff, with multiple rooms (max 3 beds per room) and a shared bathroom equipped with a washing machine. You will be able to use the wifi which is available in some areas. Our key words are self-management and cooperation, life and knowledge of nature.
The adventure of returning to the countryside. My name is Luciano Favara and I live alone in the ancient Predio Borgochiarito farm, which came to me after more than three centuries. I need sensitive people and nature lovers, willing to help me write the rest of the story. This is a magical place, the landscape is beautiful, the territory large, lush and varied, between the hills, the forest, the river, partly wild and partly cultivated with citrus, almond, olive trees, carob trees and much more. Very old agricultural plants, stone buildings, the tower, the caves. I am here to live in a regenerative and productive rural dimension, to reunite with nature and experience self-sufficiency. But also to restore splendour to the farm and make it a small, prosperous and welcoming kingdom, still capable of withstanding over time. I work mainly in general maintenance, defence of the territory and organic cultivation of fruit and vegetables, which I consume or sell directly to families. I have a cat, 2 dogs and 5 hens. It is a rural world of the past, without comfort, noise and urban habits, there is a lot to do and learn, authentic interest and mental and physical energy are needed. For those who want to recover the use of the senses and rediscover the essential dimension of men and things, to use their hands and their head wherever they need it, to feel free and useful and rediscover the rhythm of self-sufficiency, which is not work, but for which you always work. Equally important occasions to share conviviality, culture and leisure. I have a lot to talk about nature and life and I like doing it well, so I prefer to host a maximum of one or two people at a time for long periods. Then I wait for you, to be volunteers together, at the service of the natural world to be reconquered.
Our farm is situated in Agro di Monreale (PA) in the Jato hills with the Pomo lake nearby. Reachable by bus from Palermo or train to Partinico station.

We also offer rural hospitality. Help needed mainly for harvesting produce but also for all the other phases of cultivation and preparation of produce. The owner of the farm works with WWOOFers or, occasionally, one of the workers works with you. Jobs are flexible and can be for only a few hours or all day depending on what needs to be done. There are two comfortable double rooms and a room for 4 available, with bathroom, which are also used for the guests. The rooms are in the main house and all meals are eaten together with the owners. Interesting nearby sites included the Monte Jato archaeological park, the sea and the cities of Palermo, Monreale and Trapani.
