Torino

Our house is an old farmhouse 2 km from the center of Cumiana. Our work is in the countryside where we practice environmentally and socially sustainable peasant agriculture, based on polyculture and where we value old varieties of plants. The jobs on the farm vary from season to season, mainly working in the synergistic (permaculture) and biological (traditional) vegetable garden. For us, sharing is a very important value, for this, in addition to knowledge and farming practice we share all moments of daily family life with WWOOFers. For those who want to see photos / videos they are up on facebook.
This farm is located on a beautiful plain in Canavese, about 20 km north of Turin and 15 km south of Ivrea. We are a group of about twenty adults and eight children that live in an old farmhouse renovated using green building techniques. Some of us are directly involved in running the farm, others have different activities. Our group is part of the D., Federation of Communities’ which was founded in 1975, which is experimenting with a social model based on ethical and spiritual values ​expressed through work and art. We rear 100 cattle and produce all the grains needed for their maintenance, as well as for ourselves. We have vegetable gardens and greenhouses for the cultivation of organic vegetables, a small chicken coop and, seasonally, some pigs. We also run a restaurant, as part of our Agritourism project, by reservation only. Accommodation in single or double rooms, in a prefabricated wooden house near the barn. Some of us speak English, some speak French, Spanish and others German. WWOOFers can help mainly in the vegetables garden and vineyard. We can accommodate you between March and October. Help is also needed in the animal stalls and in the house. We cultivate several vineyards and everyone helps with the grape harvest in autumn. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the farm.
Our farm is situated near Piossasco which is 30 km from Turin. The farm is situated on a hill and is 8 km from the town. We cultivate crops which are typical to this rural area: vines, vegetables, greenhouse, a small orchard, meadow, an apiary, chickens, goats and sheep. We are certified organic and sell our produce in Torino (this gives the opportunity for WWOOFers to visit the city). Our family consists of two part-time nurses (1975 and 1969) and our son (2003) and at certain times of the year our grandparents who speak German. We also adhere to a social agricultural programme and occasionally have apprentices in collaboration with Torino university.The languages spoken are English (not fluently) and French. Ours is a lifestyle choice that is inspired by eco-sustainability. The activities are varied according the season (please contact us for more details), the WWOOFers will be given the opportunity to assist us and learn technical skills. Accommodation, from January to December, in a room shared with other WWOOFers. At certain times in the year (March, July, November) we go down to south Italy (Basilicata) where we cultivate land that belonged to our grandparents, grow olives and wheat and make olive oil, semolina and pasta. Given the complexity of our lifestyle we prefer a minimum stay of three weeks.

We are a couple who run a small Bed and Breakfast, situated at 1,100 m, in the woods of the Cozie Alps. We are 6 km up from town and about 50 km from Turin city centre. We have recently taken over the nurturing of the family’s two large organic vegetable gardens from F’s parents who live next to us. We also maintain small herb plots, flower boxes, and the grounds around our building. We need help with all aspects of gardening and grounds maintenance. Depending on the season there are always various types of work to be done from woodcutting and building projects to hiking trail and building maintenance. During our busy periods, we may teach cooking classes, which you can participate in, if you are interested and we can always use a hand with the dishes. Accommodation is a large loft with 2 twin beds in our main building, which has high-speed Internet connection and your own private bathroom nearby.

We are a small farm located in Val Susa 1000 meters altitude in a beautiful refuge enclosed in the woods. We devote ourselves to the earth for love and for safeguarding it from devastation. Here we and my partner live with two friends who help us in our work. We love animals and we have 5 cats, 3 dogs, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, for company. Also there are about 30 goats and many geese, ducks and hens that provide us milk and eggs but we do butcher them as we are vegetarians. We cultivate a bit of everything in our large vegetable garden, which gives us a small income but above all allows us to eat vegetables and legumes of the highest quality. We are certified organic and we use the principles of permaculture. We have a lot of activities from the bees to the vineyards, pasture and forest care, milking and cheese production, making hay, harvesting of wild herbs and soft fruits, fruit juices and preserves, cutting wood and many other activities. We speak many languages ​​and we are all young people of about 30 years who love socializing, getting to know and dealing with different people. We offer our guests a bedroom with shared bathroom. The house is very large and lends itself to accommodating many people, meals are shared and even in leisure time we like to share the good times. For lovers of skiing, hiking, climbing, horseback riding and mountain biking, it is definitely the perfect place. Less than an hour from Turin and a few kilometers from France our hut is 15 minutes from Chiomonte Station and is very easy to reach on foot. None of us carries out other activities and the tasks we need help are the most varied. We will choose tasks to be done with our guests according to their attitudes.
This organic farm, started in 2010, and typical old farmhouse is located in the Monferrato hills about 30 km from Turin and Asti, in a rural area between two nature reserves (the Superga national park and the Forest of Vay) that are rich in hiking trails that wind through meadows, woods and vineyards. I live here with my husband and my son, (2006), and with a family of friends in the recently renovated farmhouse. We have also a small agritourism with rooms and a restaurant. We cultivate fruit and vegetables, have bees, make jams, preserves and cook for the agritourism.

We are restoring and bringing life back to an ancient hamlet (at an altitude of 1400 m) which has been abandoned for several decades. Here, after the recovery of the environment and the renovation of the buildings, we want to start running farm courses focused on getting closer to nature and on the development and improvement of psycho-physical and spiritual health, as well as activities for children and teenagers.This typical mountain environment is connected only by a dirt road and to enjoy peace and serenity in a country which is almost entirely covered in concrete, you can find it only in places such as this. There are three of us working on this project, two more actively involved, A. (born 1951) and S. with her family (husband and two children). We live a few miles from the old hamlet and live there only at certain times of the year. We are currently rejuvenating meadows, fields, pastures, forests of a property which covers an area of about 150 hectares. We have started to replant the crops typical to this area and replant many species of indigenous plants with particular regard to rare species and herbs. We offer basic accommodation in dry stone huts, or tents, but giving you the opportunity to live in the midst of nature, eat and drink healthy food (also for vegetarians), learn to know and use herbs and wild edible fruits of which we are great experts: you must therefore have an interest in these activities and be very adaptable.We can accommodate people from May to September and you can collaborate in any of the above mentioned activities in a friendly atmosphere: we speak English, French, a little German and Spanish.

Since 2013 we have lived on this small farm family in Chiomonte (TO) in Val di Susa. We cultivate, in a completely natural way, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries and small amounts of fruits and vegetables in season. The agricultural season starts in April and ends in November, the minimum stay is 1 week. The main activities in which we need help are harvesting fruit, in the vegetable garden and grass cutting. If agricultural work permits, you can also, if interested, learn how to work make felt. We welcome wwoofers who love children and dogs, we have a child (2012) and a very greedy dog. We provide accommodation in an attic with bathroom and 2 beds We are vegetarians, but we respect the food choices of all, we really like the ethnic cuisine and love baking cakes. Chiomonte is a small village of 900 inhabitants 60 kilometers from Turin (easily reached by train in 1 hour) and 40 km from the French border, you can make trips into town to visit museums or stay here and enjoy the mountain trekking and mountain biking there are plenty of trails suitable for everyone. We speak Italian, English and French, and understand a little Spanish, we are happy to share our agricultural adventures with our guests.
I live here with my partner in the hills of Torino, in a beautiful place close to the town and the woods of Superga. I am a man in my 60 s and I take care of the plants, experimenting with cultivation in open fields. I decided to collaborate with WWOOF to have some help and also to share my knowledge and experience. Accommodation is in a small caravan and small wooden houses. My wife helps me morally but physically I do the work myself. I cultivate stevia, perilla, okra and hemp and gather nettles. I speak French and a little English, and I can always learn. Torino is a wonderful city to visit and public transport is 10 minutes from our house, the city will be holding Expo 2015 and there are many interesting places to visit there. I work with the principles of awareness, art and love of nature. I ask you to help with jobs on the farm such as repotting, weeding, harvesting etc. We can host from April to October.
The drive to integrate the benefits of urban life with the desire to go back to our origins has given life to the idea of ​​an innovative educational farm: R.A.M. Roots in Moncalieri. We are a group of 6 (2 brothers and 4 friends) who have decided to share their passions, knowledge and dreams together. Everyone has their own duties. We live in a beautiful farmhouse in the Moncalierese hills, immersed in the greenery of the 'Collina Po' park, a UNESCO World Heritage site 15 minutes from Turin. We have a Brewery and Educational Farm. The farm is of 15 hectares: 2 horticultural crops, 1 barley, ½ hops, 1 Italian heirloom fruit orchard and the rest is wood. We have goats and sheep and make cheese, a henhouse, 30 hives with which we produce honey and derivatives, a small fish farm of carp and an Agricultural Brewery, BAM (we produce 100% of raw materials). We grow vegetables in and out of the soil (hydroponics and aquaponics). All resources, as well as waste, are reused in an integration cycle that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes production and benefits for the community. We are inspired by the principles of biodynamics and permaculture both in agriculture and in everyday life. We are founding members of the "Diramarsi" cultural association that promotes cultural and artistic events linked to sustainability on the farm. Depending on the season or availability, we offer a room with a shared bathroom or a tent in the garden in front of the house. Meals are shared together using all our own produce. We will choose together with our guests, according to their passions and skills, the most appropriate activities to do. We like to teach but also to learn.
