Friuli Venezia Giulia

Hi, my name is Marco and I live in a small house in Magnano in Riviera, near a huge wood that goes all the way to Slovenia. I am paraplegic and I live with many animals such as sheep, hens, quail pheasants and of course two very special dogs. I would like to achieve energy and obviously food independence within a few years, I have a small greenhouse and an evolving vegetable garden. I studied nutraceuticals and I like cooking very much and would like to produce super-organic dog food. I have recently started producing medicinal mushrooms, I am studying Staments books in American technical with the right calm. Permaculture and the principles of the Blue Economy are at the base of my actions and projects. I studied sculpture in Venice and at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. I consider myself a craftsman. I would like to meet people with an open and curious mindset. Here the place is very quiet, ideal for relaxing in peace and learning to hug the trees. I really like cooking and I like to experiment ... even if my real passion is animals, plants and mushrooms ... that I find exceptionally beautiful, therefore worthy of respect. I have an ovovegetarian diet that I integrate with some organic products in times of need ... but I'm not an extremist. I am not a smoker and I would rather avoid hosting smokers or those with similar addictions. There would be a lot of work and a lot to learn and for that very reason I prefer people who stay for at least a month ... at least if you are not already a super expert in permaculture and working with plants and mushrooms. I have to set up a laboratory and build the bio swimming pool, finish fencing some of the ground and plant giant bamboo, light hemp and wood to be inoculated with mushrooms. I also have two families of bees; in the future I would like to create a room for practicing apitherapy ... step by step.
Our (Kaspar and Marina with 3 children and the dog Dora) plan to save the agricultural heritage and to continue the rural tradition around the mountain village Dordolla in Val Aupa (Carnic Alps, Municipality of Moggio Udinese). Cultivating small plots (potatoes, corn, beans, etc.) and mowing / grazing steep meadows for / with our sheep we preserve the productive potential of the tiere viere (= old land in the Friulian language) made available thanks to the centuries-old commitment of many Alpine farmers. Our guests can enjoy (apart from the fascinating natural environment) the fruits of this work (food and landscape) and experience a different way of life. They reward us by staying at our holiday farm or by helping us. There is a need for manpower in all seasons, even in winter (woods) but to contribute concretely requires a good physical preparation and a stay of at least 3 weeks. In the family we speak Friulian, Italian and German. Only Kaspar speaks English. For our WWOOFers we have a separate room (shared bathroom). We are happy to pick up our guests at the nearest Carnia train station or at the Moggio Udinese bus station.
Dear Wwoofers we introduce ourselves: I am Nadia and I take care of the land; my husband Massimo takes care of sustainability for a large company, but as soon as he can, he plunges into the countryside; then there are our children Emma (2006) and Elia (2007). This is my certified organic farm; we are in Fiumicello, a town a few kilometers from the sea between the seaside town of Grado and the ancient Roman city of Aquileia. We are small (10 ha) but we have a wide variety of crops and sell directly to our customers. We grow cereals, vegetables and fruit. We are looking for people who can help us in the countryside and who want to enjoy the surroundings between sea, beach and nature: riding a bike is wonderful between the river and the lagoon areas; the city of Trieste is easily reached. If you wish to come to us, minimum stay is 2 weeks. You can work alongside me and immerse yourself in the good practices of an organic farm where you learn something new every day. We will host you in a large shady tent in the garden, but you will have all the comforts of the adjacent house where we live and you can enjoy our pool. The cuisine is varied and we like to experiment, maybe learn something from you. We speak English, Massimo well, I a little less and the children are learning it. The countryside is intense and all-encompassing; for us, who carried out a completely different activity, it was like starting to walk again! We would like to find people with whom to have rich exchanges, but at the same time autonomous and respectful of everyone's needs; we would also like non Italians to spend some time with our kids to help them improve their English. We host only between late June and mid-September.
I'm Paolo, I live in Sacile (PN), in Friuli, and a couple of years ago I started farming in the mountains of my area, in a small town in the Pedemontana del Cansiglio called Lama di Som. I grow berries and vegetables and I raise bees trying to experiment alternative methods, respectful of the environment and of people, putting my knowledge as a Biologist into practice. For example, I am experimenting with the use of useful insects and natural treatments to control pests and plant diseases, and I am going to deepen the techniques of electro-culture and biodynamics, trying to create a virtuous balance in this little corner of unspoiled paradise, offering healthy food and studying the mechanisms that favour the development of life in a natural context. I really like to combine the efficiency of new technologies with the simplicity of traditions and I would also like to involve experienced Permaculture people to organize courses related to land management and care activities and sustainable agriculture. I need help in harvesting fruit and managing agricultural activities in general, from March to October, but above all I would like to share this experience with open-minded people, willing to learn, to be in company, to offer interesting ideas and useful ideas . I speak English and some Spanish. I offer hospitality for one / maximum two people in a house with two rooms (I can possibly organize myself for more people) and I am planning to build another small building in wood and straw.
I am the pioneer of an Eco Village under construction, around me are gathering people who want to help the project in their various capacities and so on the farm is like being in an extended family. At this moment everything is evolving! The activities that take place are: to build walls with natural materials (straw, earth, sand ..), look after the small vegetable garden and orchard, clear the forest from brambles and brushwood, organize artistic and / or educational events on agricultural issues. The garden is on the baulatura with Hugelkultur method and BRF technique (with wood chips), permaculture is practiced and experimented with. The volunteers have the opportunity to camp and also to stay in my house in Lignano, 30 minutes from the farm. The structures are not yet complete so it is advisable to return to my home to cook, wash clothes and take a swim in the sea. On the farm you can swim in the river and walk in the surrounding area. We are also one hour away from Venice, Trieste and Udine. I welcome volunteers from May to November, the minimum stay required is 2 weeks. Languages ​​spoken: English and Italian. Food: vegan - vegetarian. Smoking accepted only if respectful of those who do not smoke.
This 13 ha farm is situated on the Friuli plains. Homeodynamic (homeopathy combined with biodynamic agriculture) agriculture is practiced. Various types of vegetables are grown all year round - in greenhouses and outside - herbs and fruit trees. Particular attention is devoted to the improvement of our seed and seedling production. Since 2006 we are an Eco village. We are already established as a cultural centre for biodiversity, the centre of the farm was built using the principles of green building (probably it is the largest building in Europe constructed in wood and straw), a 8,000 square meters tunnel, a windmill and a building for the production of clean energy (mainly compressed air) made of wood and wool. The WWOOFers are accommodated in single or double rooms in our guest house. The meals are vegetarian, with many ingredients coming directly from the fields. Length of stay: variable, although for organizational reasons we prefer periods of at least 15 days. We cannot accommodate children. Possible jobs include: planting of trees and vegetable seedlings, harvesting fruit and vegetables, weeding. Languages spoken: Spanish, English and a little French.
Ciao a tutti, I'm Massimo, I live in Costapiana a rural village, located in at 400m. s.l.m. in the municipality of Faedis. Together with my friends Gabriele and Barbar I share my life in contact with nature and passion for agriculture: organic cultivation, recovery of ancient indigenous varieties, maintenance of wooded areas, meadows and pastures. The village is 3 km from the bottom of the valley and is reached along the communal road or by walking along the paths. From the courtyard of the large rustic stone and wood house, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view, and see, on most days the sea on the horizon. The day is divided into various activities, such as: garden and fruit tree management, clearing in the fields, woods and trails, and small building and maintenance jobs. There will be moments of sharing, spirituality and music, embraced by the warm refreshment of a fire under the stars. Our project is to give space to a meeting place for musicians or people who want to get closer to this art, so we have a variety of musical instruments available, and our idea is to be able to develop this with everyones contribution. We have two guest rooms, please bring your own sleeping bag if possible, services and kitchen are communal. There is also spaces for tents, campers or vans, using the facilities in the house. Our cuisine is predominantly vegetarian and vegan, but other food choices do not preclude hospitality. We also welcome couples with children, Barbara and Gabriele have a two-year-old daughter. We prefer to host from April to October for a period of one to a few weeks. We all speak some English.
We live in Oltris, a small hamlet in Ampezzo Carnico. Mainly we deal with Art and Communication (also for some local agricultural activities) with the support of the vegetable garden, the orchard and the forest. The philosophy that we would like to share with our guests is to live in a decentralized place, integrating nature and technology in favour of healthy living with the right times. In the family we are 2 adults (Nadia and Sergio) with 2 daughters, Shadi born in 2010 and Kaylee of 2014 (we practice homeschooling). The wwoofers can collaborate in the daily life of the family, from the care of the orchard and fields, to the artistic activity, but above all to the exchange of experiences and personal growth of everyone. We have a room reserved for guests. We welcome both vegetarians and non (for various reasons we would like to avoid smokers). The house is surrounded by 5000 square meters of land, other small plots around the village and one hectare of forest. Right now there is a dog, a cat, 4 Indian ducks, 7 geese, 11 hens. We can host you in any period of the year, but preferably spring and autumn (minimum 2 weeks in order to build up a relationship). For those wishing to walk, from the village of Oltris leave several paths that lead into the woods, in the stream lumiei or the plateau of Pani. From Ampezzo, which is a 20-minute walk away, you can reach Sauris in 20 minutes by car or bus. Mountains, paths, streams, places of art, Carnia is full of places to discover.
We are a family with a child (2012), we run a small family-run farm for self-sufficiency in a mountain valley in the Pordenone area that we work alongside a b & b.

The activities are varied, caring for animals, haymaking, cutting wood, setting up fences and spaces for animals, cleaning work spaces, processing milk, with a flexible daily routine. During the summer months Wwoofers have a comfortable caravan and share our bathroom. During the winter monthsthere is a private room with shared bathroom, all the other spaces are shared, in the house you can not smoke. Mealtimes will be a moment of sharing, we are not vegetarians, but we respect every kind of choice and need. We can host 2-3 people also in own tent or caravan. The area of ​​Val Colvera is very beautiful and natural, near our farm there is a rock gym and various rivers, there are numerous hiking trails, we are close to the park of the Friulian Dolomites. We host for variable periods, usually 1 -2 weeks. We speak English and some Spanish.
