Recovering from an- luckily not serious- injury my father who until now had always given me a big hand in the management of the fields cannot help and I would like to welcome one or two wwoofers to our farm now as we have time to follow them and teach him and also to help out in different activities to be done, we will be available also in the following months but for July and August we already have several requests that should give us confirmation soon.
At the moment, however, no one has contacted us for this period and having an extra pair of helping hands from a wwoofer would be of great assistance
The olive grove has been neglected in recent years due to family problems and today needs to be cleaned. Collaboration is required during the spring-summer period. Whilst collaborating on the farm olive cultivation techniques will be analyzed and it will be possible to compare the different experiences of organic and eco-sustainable agriculture.
We are looking for a person who can help us to cut the grass in this period of difficulty due to illness. There would also be the possibility of remaining, if we all get on well, for prolonged periods. It could be a chance for a couple, to experience life in the countryside. Looking ahead, we are looking for someone who could manage our 10 ha.
Toni Balestra has reached the point of finding it difficult to manage everything by himself. For this reason we have decided to suspend the publication of his announcement from the list and ask the wwoofers interested in a long term experience maybe leading to a long term or permanent commitment to contact him directly.
I have had an annoying shoulder injury that prevents me from doing many jobs over the coming months, the most complex and demanding being that I have to prepare the winter garden, harvest, pick the olives, etc ... so I really need a hand for this period.
In this turbulent summer I have been caring for the small oasis where I live (between Orvieto and Lake Bolsena) on my own and I am having difficulty dealing with the various tasks. I am looking for urgent, motivated and willing help on the natural and ecological level (water supply for wild birds and other wild animals, cleaning the woodland of dry branches for fire prevention etc.) as well as small agricultural jobs in the garden and orchard (harvesting and conservation). Thank you, Anna.
I am Petra in Macerata: my house is severely damaged from the earthquake and we are living in caravans. I would like to make a bathroom and a studio in the barn starting now and I need help with plastering, tiling and putting in doors and windows. You need to have your own tent/accomodation.
Between problems with my back and the medications I am taking to cure it I am finding it difficult to keep up with the work:
harvesting and preserving Umeboshi, synergic vegetable garden. I would be extremely grateful for any kind of help, in exchange a chance of total connection with nature in beautiful Sicily.
