Terni

Isolated farm run by Heidi, who cares for the land and animals and is also a voice therapist. There are 3 hectares of land around the house with 80 olive trees, a vegetable garden, 40 fruit trees and 6 ha of woodland, as well as chickens, cats and dogs. Large house divided into self-contained apartments (3 apart from Heidi’s), two double rooms and various outhouses. Help needed in the fields and on the farm, looking after the animals and in the overgrown vegetable garden. Planning to utilize the large spaces for various courses. Also runs a B&B. German, English and French spoken.

Family run farm situated 560m above sea level on Mount Peglia. We produce about a ha of vegetable garden, hay, oil, a little wine for home consumption, soft fruit. Jobs include harvesting and storage of onions, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes and beans, making tomato sauce and jam, haymaking, harvesting olives for oil and grapes for wine. But in the countryside there are always many chores to do, especially in a wilderness like this! We are just 9 km from Orvieto (5 km is along a dirt road) but as we have 3 children there is always someone who goes into town. We have no TV but we have internet, a good sense of humour is essential!.

Small farm of about 3 ha surrounded by woods between Orvieto and the lake of Bolsena about 600 m above sea level. The area is particularly rich in biodiversity and is part of an area which has been closed to hunting for forty years. This place is suitable for those who love tranquility, contact with nature and respects her rhythms. The main activities for which help is needed are the following: in the organic vegetable garden with attention to ancient local varieties; we are in the process of creating a synergistic garden. Harvesting fruit and herbs, transplanting trees, pruning etc. Forest maintenance: cleaning and making signs for pathways, collecting firewood and identifying plants at risk of genetic erosion for reproduction by seed, cuttings and transplants. Maintaining the gardens adjacent to the houses (weeding, watering, transplanting, etc.). The farm is actively involved in the protection of animal biodiversity also with the construction of artificial nests, bird feeders and shelters for small wildlife, creating small ponds etc. In this sense it is working on testing a model of low-impact living which is respectful of other life forms. We are happy to host people who do not smoke and are vegetarian. The accommodation provided is in a single room with bathroom (possibly shared by other guests). Medium-long length of stay. Basic English spoken.

My wife and I live in the countryside near Orvieto with our two children (students), we moved form Rome to live in the country. We have a small holiday house (10 beds), newly opened and 5 has of land which we cultivate organically. There is a small olive grove and another one to plant, 2 orchards, vegetable garden, and lots of animals. We need help from people who are willing to help out for a few hours a day as there are many jobs to be done in the countryside. The area is very beautiful situated 10 kms from Orvieto and not far from Bolsena (:))) ). Length of stay by arrangement, meals mainly vegetarian, we do not smoke and are unable to host children. Some English and French spoken.
A small farm run by myself (24) and my parents. On the 5 hectares of land there are mainly olives which need pruning and cleaning in the spring and harvesting in October, a kitchen vegetable garden and a small field of barley, legumes, vegetables. (crops vary from year to year). The vegetable garden expands every year and my main work is there, especially in the spring. Transplanting seedlings, preparing the ground, seeding, we pay particular attention to seed varieties and the fruit trees are local varieties. We are situated in the hills, 10 minutes by car from the town, in the last fields before the woodland starts. During the olive harvest we work longer days with extra days off, WWOOFers do not help in the agritourism but from spring to autumn we make jams, dry fruit, bottle tomatoes etc. I go out about once a week, many of my friends are artisans or small farmers, and we are starting to participate in markets and GAS (local buyers groups) with some of our produce: food (I love to cook, especially bake), soaps and creams, beauty products made from wild plants. We offer accommodation in a single room when possible, food is mostly vegetarian using our vegetables or produce from other organic farms. Write and ask if you have questions!

This hermitage is a very isolated farmhouse, particularily suitable for people who need to temporarily get away from the stress of the city and recharge their batteries in the peace of nature and the countryside doing simple jobs. It is nestled in the green heart of Umbria, near to a nature reserve and 15 km from the nearest village. The house has been carefully renovated using green building methods, is equipped with photovoltaic panels, heated by wood and has it’s own water from the well. The main jobs are in our organic garden and cleaning the access paths. The food is vegetarian, we mainly use our products and those of local producers. We do not have television, there is a landline but not good mobile phone reception, internet is only available in the reception area. There is a small chapel on the property. Meals are shared together in the refectory. The "luxury" that reigns in our hermitage is linked to ecology, healthy technology and spirituality. The WWOOFers are housed in a single room with bathroom . We speak English, French and Spanish.

Ours is a small farm in the hills between Orvieto and Todi, 12 ha where we have a herd of dairy goats, pigs, sheep, farmyard animals, pets, a young olive grove of 600 trees and a vegetable garden and orchard for family use. We have a dairy where we transform the milk every day and 5 apartments where guests and WWOOFers can stay. We are 4 adults and 2 children, we are Norwegian, therefore we speak Norwegian and Italian but also good English and French. We have lived here for 8 years, it was a lifestyle choice, we still have much to learn and develop. We hope to exchange of ideas, thoughts and knowledge with wwoofers. On the other hand, life here is also full of daily tasks, daily and / or seasonal care of the animals and the land, the maintenance of the houses and fences, the wood, the garden etc. etc. Here, we would like your help in everything we're doing. We always have lunch together but in the evening you'll have a kitchen in your accommodation where you can prepare dinner but of course we provide all the food -usually from the farm. We are in an isolated place and it is very quiet, surrounded only by fields, woods and parks. We often go to Orvieto and so of course are happy to take you to the train. 

This project was born in 2014 by the will of 6 of us from the city who wanted to change our lifestyles. We rolled up our sleeves, gathered the tools, and began to clear manure from an old barn in the woods of Poggio Lavarino (TR), in the unspoiled Valserra, with the intention of rediscovering the pleasure and values ​​of rural life. The difficulties have been countless and there has constant effort! Today we are in 2 (Susanna and Jacopo) to carry on our little reality with of goats, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks but also a small domestic vegetable garden and some olive trees. After the first few years of living long periods in a trailer near the barn, in 2017 we managed to get a house in the village where we can host the wwoofers in a private room. The necessary help varies according to the seasons, but for us it is especially important to share, which until now has always been manifested in a beautiful symbiotic relationship with "our" wwoofers.
The total lack of water sources was the reason that stimulated the project ” Renewable Energy Park - FoR" (“Parco dell’Energia Rinnovabile - PeR”). We started by renovating a farm that was abandoned in the 50s and it has been a challenge. The goal is to employ clean energy sources and create a place for dissemination of renewable sources. The project is is located in Umbria, in the province of Terni, at a height of 550 above sea level. It is in a protected area and is surrounded by one of the most intact Mediterranean forests including the largest Holm Oak forest in central Italy, with chestnut woods, oak, hornbeam and maple trees. It is also an Environmental Education Centre and they organize educational tours and educational programs on energy sources. ECOTURISMOIl This is the place for people who wish to experience the true eco-tourism amidst the Umbrian woods and to have the opportunity to engage in pleasant walks, also on horseback or invigorating hikes, but also to be able to learn to live in an environmental sustainable way. The centre is equipped with a restaurant in Km. Zero which also serves meals made with food from the farm itself. Everything that is used for cooking here is produced on the farm and is all strictly organic. The farm is inspired by the principles of Permaculture. The natural environment in which the farm is located and the food it provides for the farm's restaurant is the ideal place to sensitize the participants to adopt lifestyles respectful of nature. We decrease consumption and we increase comfort: this is possible.
My husband and myself are therapists and run a spiritual centre open to all religions. We organize groups for meditation, celebrations and other events. We eat a vegetarian diet and do not smoke. We have about 500 olive trees, fruit trees and organic gardens. We have two dogs and a cat. We would be pleased to share (from April to November) activities in the gardens, the vegetable gardens, with the olives, the olive harvest, preparation of preserves, herbs and general maintenance. Hospitality is offered in rooms. The town of Amelia is about 3 km away and can be reached on foot or by bus. We also host for shorter periods, preferably people interested in our activities. Languages spoken: French, English, Spanish, German. Contact preferably by email or Facebook (Facebook Centro di Unità Premananda)
