We are a family of 4: Mattia and Francesca, with Olga (born in 2009) and Nemo (2013). We moved in Oria (BR) in November of 2013 with plans to set up a farming/educational activity based on the design in permaculture, and on sustainability and ecology. At the end of 2016 we established the farm with the dream of finding a balance with Mother Earth and to produce food that provides wellness and health to people and at the same time does not subtract fertility to the soil. We are founding members of the association "Nautilus - Permaculture and Sustainability" that works to promote a culture that respects the cycles of nature, through workshops, courses and events. We are also part of the project Case delle Erbe that promotes and enhances Italian traditions on culinary and medicinal uses of herbs. We have hosted volunteers since 2015. The activities of the next two years (2017 and 2018) will be: the start of the vegetable gardens and orchards, the construction of farm structures as much as possible self-built with natural materials, animal care, manufacturing bio-fertilizers and compost, harvesting and processing produce. As much as possible, we eat vegetarian, organic and self-produced food; sometimes meat or fish. The accommodation is in a caravan, tent or yurt or traditional stone cottage, depending on availability and season. The kitchen and bathroom are shared. We love people who are enthusiastic, curious and communicative, and enjoy being with children. Our project is in the starting phase and requires a lot of energy: it's important to have a lot of motivation and desire to learn. We live more or less 5 km from Oria, the nearest town. We have bikes available to explore the area. If possible, we can give you a lift when we go to town or to other places.

We are a family of three (Paola, Mark and Diego). Mark is from Germany and Paola from Rome and since 2013 we have lived permanently in Valle d'Itria, in Puglia, near Ostuni. We are working in permaculture, deep ecology, "inner work" on the individual and on community levels, dedicated mainly to regenerating the land and the water and on the social level to implement the network of the local community. We take care of a half hectare of olive grove, where we changed the monoculture of olives and planted a food forest. For soil regeneration we make and use effective micro organisms, worm compost and organic agricultural regenerative preparations. We experiment with systems for water conservation, natural filtration systems through the use of plants and movement of water. For the preservation and processing of food we mainly use fermentation and drying techniques. We make soaps and natural cosmetics. For cultivating vegetables we are looking for the most appropriate technique to use due to the scarcity of water in our area. Mark also works as a beekeeper, Paola is an art therapist. We offer seminars inspired by the thoughts of Charles Eisenstein, experiences between deep ecology, permaculture, the theatre and the clown. The long-term projects which we will be busy with in the coming months are to build a tiny house (house on wheels) and to waterproof the water tank using natural techniques. We live about 4 km from Ostuni, in a rented house which is a 10 min walk from our land. Accommodation is in an outer room of the house which is also used as a laundry; or in a caravan with double bed in the olive grove. Compost toilet.

We are an Italian-Irish couple and we have left our city life to dedicate ourselves to the countryside. We have a one and a half hectare olive grove near Ceglie Messapica, on which we are trying to increase the vitality and the variety of plants that grow there. We are inspired by natural agriculture and we are planting new trees with the idea of ​​making the olive grove into a food forest. In addition to a hundred olive trees there are about sixty almond trees and some cherry trees. We are planting and grafting new fig trees, black cherry, pear, apricot, peach, mulberry and walnut and we would like to put more in the future. We would like in the future to become a small farm that uses natural drying as the main method of preserving fruit and vegetables. On the land there is also a small trullo that we plan to restore. We offer accommodation in our house, which is about 5 km from the land, and from spring there will be the possibility to camp in the olive grove. We speak fluent Italian and English and we have a dog.

Our organic farm, which specialises in the production of organic olive oil (grown and bottled here with our own
label), also produces a lot of fruit. We are situated in the Park of Olives, near the WWF reserve of Torre Guaceto. We live very close to the sea and some beautiful beaches (visit our website for photos). The air is clean and uncontaminated and there is no industry. Accommodation in one of the villas or an apartment in Carovigno. English and some French spoken.

This farm - dating back to 1600 - has its roots in the heart of Puglia, in the hinterland between Brindisi and Taranto, about ten kilometers from the sea. The farm which is completely organic - is located south of Ostuni (BR) and mainly produces extra virgin olive oil and almonds: in the 4 hectares of land there are about 400 olive trees (Leccine, Ogliarole, Nardò and Pasole) and about 500 almond trees. Work in olive growing begins with harvesting between November and December / January, continues with pruning from January to June (local labor force). For almonds: harvest in July / August and pruning in September. A family garden and vineyard require care from spring to autumn. Accommodation in several rooms: there are six in all and are double and triple. Heating with radiators and fireplaces. Three bathrooms with hot and cold water. We are a family that for over twenty years has chosen to live respecting nature and looking for a different way and time to be together.
