I live in the Lucretili Mountains 800 m above sea level, and have approx 4.5 hectares of forest and meadow. With an eye to the principles of permaculture and an ear to what the local old people say, without dogmatism, I'm slowly creating a garden for our own consumption and grow herbs typical to this mountainous area. For some years I have harvested and transformed wild medicinal plants, organized courses on herbs and educational walks. I moved here in 2014, and there is a lot to do, I'd like to have chickens and bees, continue to plant fruit trees and create a forest garden, renovate the stone barn and contribute to the natural beauty of this place. Therefore the possible activities are many and varied, some more strenuous others more contemplative. Inside the house I can accommodate up to two people at a time, while in the summer there is ample space for tents and campers. We cook and eat together, cooking and heating are with wood, I do not have television but do have internet, I speak German and a little English.
This is a farm of 60 hectares of woods, pastures and arable land 95 km from Rome and 15 km from Rieti which on one side uses different techniques of sustainable agriculture (thermocompost, acquaponia, synergistic garden, regenerative organic agriculture, biochar, minibiogas, worm compost, rational grazing, etc.) and on the other organizes festas and events related to the different stages of the production processes. For this work, depending on the time of year, is both agricultural and organization of events such as the Harvest Festival in July, the festival of ploughing using cows in October, etc. We cultivate ancient grains and breads, fruits, vegetables, nuts, jams, cattle, chickens. We are a family of 3 (34, 37 and 3 years old) and we cooperate with Filippo and Giulia who have started a farm with snails, saffron and spirulina. Depending on the availability of beds, the accommodation can be in double, triple or dorm rooms. We look forward to having many of you here!
