Imperia

We are a 'biological' family (two boys, my wife and myself) with the idea that future survival can be achieved by downsizing to a model of rural sustainable development. On our organic farm we cultivate olives, basil and vegetables and promote exchange with other organic farms, visitors and customers. The house is located in a panoramic position on the outskirts of Porto Maurizio, with about 3,000 m2 of vegetable garden and a small olive grove whereas the main olive grove (2 Has) is reachable in 20 minutes in our pick-up. We are making a campsite and when it is ready WWOOFers will be accommodated there but until then you are accommodated in our house in 2 self contained studios with kitchen, bathroom and WiFi access. We can host 3-4 people, normally we eat one meal a day together in the house on a working day, otherwise you are independent for meals. Food is usually home produced or from known sources, we do cannot cater for special diets (we eat whatever there is..). Stays can vary in duration, the minimum is 3 weeks unless otherwise agreed. We speak French, English and a little Spanish.

We are a small farm in Apricale, Ventimiglia, and since 2011 have been restoring old terraces with the intention to cultivate them using natural techniques with full respect for the local environment. We have 7000 square meters of land, of which only a small part is cultivated as a vegetable garden. The land includes several fruit trees and is surrounded by woods. The jobs to be done are very varied and cover different needs aimed at self sufficiency. We ask WWOOFers, depending on your ability, to help in the daily tasks of managing the garden and vines, in the preparation of preserves, as well as in other jobs such as cutting trees and cleaning the forest and terraces, maintenance, including of the dry stone walls. The house can only be reached on foot by a hilly path in 15 minutes. The house has only an outside toilet and an outdoor shower without hot water (although there is a solar heated bag available). A few minutes walk away there is a river where you can swim. Despite the lack of hot water we ask for good personal hygiene. We can host people from late March to mid-November. Depending on availability, we offer a room or a tent. We do not eat meat and are happy to adapt to special diets. We cater for both individuals and couples for a minimum period of one week. Languages spoken French and English.

The house and land have a wonderful view of the sea. My project is to cultivate aromatic plants and a small vegetable garden, as well as an olive grove located in another plot of land. I am enthusiastic to host WWOOFers to help me on the farm and for cultural exchange. Accommodation in a private bedroom, or loft with bathroom; communal kitchen, 2 terraces and large garden. I am quite a good cook, I eat meat, fish and vegetables; I do not smoke. I speak mother tongue Italian, quite good English and French. Often we do recreational and sports activities such as hiking, kayaking, and dancing.
Our farm is located inland in Imperia, in the municipality of Dolcedo, about 12 km. from the sea. The predominant crop is olives that characterize our 3 ha farm. As well as the vegetable garden and fruit trees, we have a few goats and sheep, and an apiary of about 10 families. We are keen on botany, with herbal knowledge and ethnobotany. Being aware of the culture and traditions of the place, we always strive for their preservation and knowledge. We are also committed to the preservation of the territory, also helping with the firefighting team and other voluntary associations in our community. We have joined this association to share with other people, especially young people, our knowledge and our love of nature and the work in the countryside. We need help for the agricultural side. We do not eat meat or meat derivatives and our diet is based on cereals, legumes and products from our garden. For our consumption and that of our friends we collect herbs and edible mushrooms. The accommodation is in a room in an independent accommodation with private bathroom. We can host one WWOOFer for a minimum of three weeks. Languages spoken English & French.
We are a family: Philippe and Federica, Marius, Romeo and Oscar. We live in a beautiful medieval village in the Ligurian hinterland. We come from the city and we have been here for almost 4 years following a path of degrowth and being closer to nature. There is a small workshop where we make bread (native grains, sourdough, mill for milling the wheat), there are vegetable gardens, for now we have two goats and a cat, we hope to have hens soon, there are dry stone walls to be repaired, a little housework and making preserves, fencing ... above all a commitment to the rebirth of the sense of community, and the values ​​of sharing. We are here, in Rocchetta Nervina, 12 km from the sea and from Ventimiglia, right on the border with France. Philippe is a baker farmer, Federica works in computer communication and graze the goats, the boys study and participate in family activities. Our diet is not strictly vegetarian, even if meat consumption is very limited. Very few dairy products, no milk. We host for the pleasure of sharing our lifestyle and of learning from those who come from "outside". We are fluent in Italian and French and a little English is spoken.

We, Michele and Rocco, are starting this farm together in Lavina di Rezzo, a beautiful medieval village in the Ligurian hinterland of Imperia half an hour from the sea and half an hour from the mountains. The farm is managed by us directly with the occasional help of the rest of the family. Since 2015 I have been trying to recover abandoned terraces to cultivate them with respect of the landscape. Currently we have 150 olive trees, 500 m2 of saffron, a field of garlic, two small gardens, an apiary with 25 hives and 20 hens. We ask WWOOFers, according to their abilities and desires, for help in the daily work of managing the garden and the olive trees, the bees, as well as in the maintenance of terracing, including dry-stone walls, and in the recovery of abandoned land to return it to productivity. I enthusiastically offer hospitality to Wwoofer from my desire for a cultural exchange linked to rural activities. Wwoofers are housed in a separate building, have 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, kitchen and a farmyard outside, access to the wifi network. We can accommodate up to 2 adults, even couples. We wish to host for a minimum period of two weeks. Usually we eat together I can cook well enough, we have a varied diet, we kindly ask you not to smoke inside the rooms or in the bedroom. The valley in which I live is all substantially natural, all the inhabitants are sensitive to the environment, conservation of the landscape and careful use of natural resources. In the area around Lavina, there is trekking, biking, river fishing, river bathing and mushroom picking. To go to the sea in Imperia or Albenga there is the bus from Pieve di Teco (village 3 km away), or we can give you a lift when we go in.
We are an English family who speak English and Italian and have a small organic olive farm of about 2 hectares in Apricale – an historic village in Liguria in Italy, close to France and the Riviera. We bought our farm some years ago. Sadly, it had become rundown over the years so we are undertaking a program of works to bring it back to its former glory. We are very passionate about traditional methods. Therefore, our philosophy is based upon supporting the age-old traditions of Ligurian olive farming, which requires extensive networks of terraces, trees and dry-stone walls upon which the famous Taggiasca olive is cultivated. We are currently painstakingly restoring these old terraces by hand and bringing the 300-year-old trees back into production using only organic and traditional methods to do so. It is our intention to have a fully productive organic farm, immersed in nature, in the near future. We are offering an opportunity to join us on our journey to restore a unique part of Ligurian heritage and patrimony for those who wish to learn more about organic olive farming and the traditional methods, which originally created this old and honourable way of life. We have many jobs to do and days spent with us may include irrigation, organic fertilisation and protecting the olives from pests using Kaolin, tree pruning, terrace clearing, dry-stone walling and various other related tasks on the land dependent on the time of year. You may even be lucky enough to be with us when we are pressing the olives into oil, which is the highlight of our year. Penny uses our olive oil to make soaps and cosmetic products, and is training to be a professional olive oil taster and can’t wait to share what she has learnt. If joining us on our journey sounds interesting to you, we’d be delighted to host you so drop us an email.
