The farm is located about 2 km from the village of Solarino, in the province of Syracuse. You can get here by bus with direct connections from Siracusa, Catania and Catania Airport. We bought the land only a few months ago so of course we are at the beginning of the project following the principles (and ethics) of Permaculture. Whilst waiting to complete the renovations of the house the accommodation will be in our house in the village, in a room with double sofa bed, with a bathroom and other facilities shared with us. We would be happy to accommodate couples. Everyday we go to the land where Alex will work with you on the jobs to be done. The activities for which we would like to have help include: preparation and maintenance of the garden, worm culture, caring for the seedlings, pruning, making a chicken coop and many other things In your free time there is plenty to see and visit, we have mountain bikes that you can use for small trips. We try to use our own produce in the kitchen as much as possible. Meals will be shared with us, we ask for collaboration for preparation and washing up. Federica loves to devote herself to cooking "healthily". We are omnivorous, but we eat meat very rarely and only when we know where it came from. Alex is a very helpful person, as well as being competent in various fields, such as computing and design, he likes themes such as bio-building, soil regeneration, mulching and beekeeping.
Our farm is located in the Simeto river valley with an incredible view of mount Etna surrounded by 3 ha of orange orchard, olive trees and an organic vegetable garden, chickens, geese, dogs and cats. The Waters of Etna converge on the farm and offer many opportunities for experiencing and creating water gardens. There are 1000 square meters of old buildings that we have restored a bit by bit because the property had been abandoned for about 20 years. Our intent is to be economically self-sufficient for the small group of people that live here respecting our biorhythms and the nature that surrounds us. We grow olive trees and citrus trees, prune in spring, in summer, irrigate, fertilize and harvest the olives in the fall and gather our oranges from December to April which we ship every week to customers, and from 2013 we have taken care of an abandoned avocado orchard and will harvest them too. We like to do our work on meditation, eating mainly fresh organic (when possible) vegetarian food and provide a break from the internet to our WWOOFers (although you can take a well-deserved afternoon off for a full immersion in the internet café 3 km away). We plan to continue rejuvenating the citrus trees, to improve and enlarge the vegetable garden in the spring, every so often we host someone who is interested in the project, and sometimes there are seminars. We welcome those of you who are willing and experienced in these activities, designers, artists and workers - meditators. We are open all year-round to WWOOFers hospitality in shared rooms with 2 or 3 beds.

Our main interest is the study of folklore, music and poetry, holistic medicine and the search for a natural healthy lifestyle. Our goal is to be able to live simply, in harmony with the countryside, and in a true relationship with nature ... to be independent as much as possible, not slaves of a society that embraces getting fat, every day eating away at our our bodies, our minds and our souls. We live without technology in a humble and simple way. We have 2 has of land and a spring, an olive grove, orchard, fruit and almond trees. We cultivate the garden all year round with natural methods inspired by the principles of permaculture and biodynamic agriculture. We follow an omnivorous diet in accordance with the rhythms and cycles of nature. We home school our children. We are open to dialogue, confrontation, exchange ... We want to meet people who help us to grow in this direction ... maybe people who then decide to share our project, our dream of a ridiculous man!
