We live in Oltris, a small hamlet in Ampezzo Carnico. Mainly we deal with Art and Communication (also for some local agricultural activities) with the support of the vegetable garden, the orchard and the forest. The philosophy that we would like to share with our guests is to live in a decentralized place, integrating nature and technology in favour of healthy living with the right times. In the family we are 2 adults (Nadia and Sergio) with 2 daughters, Shadi born in 2010 and Kaylee of 2014 (we practice homeschooling). The wwoofers can collaborate in the daily life of the family, from the care of the orchard and fields, to the artistic activity, but above all to the exchange of experiences and personal growth of everyone. We have a room reserved for guests. We welcome both vegetarians and non (for various reasons we would like to avoid smokers). The house is surrounded by 5000 square meters of land, other small plots around the village and one hectare of forest. Right now there is a dog, a cat, 4 Indian ducks, 7 geese, 11 hens. We can host you in any period of the year, but preferably spring and autumn (minimum 2 weeks in order to build up a relationship). For those wishing to walk, from the village of Oltris leave several paths that lead into the woods, in the stream lumiei or the plateau of Pani. From Ampezzo, which is a 20-minute walk away, you can reach Sauris in 20 minutes by car or bus. Mountains, paths, streams, places of art, Carnia is full of places to discover.
Hi, my name is Marco and I live in a small house in Magnano in Riviera, near a huge wood that goes all the way to Slovenia. I am paraplegic and I live with many animals such as sheep, hens, quail pheasants and of course two very special dogs. I would like to achieve energy and obviously food independence within a few years, I have a small greenhouse and an evolving vegetable garden. I studied nutraceuticals and I like cooking very much and would like to produce super-organic dog food. I have recently started producing medicinal mushrooms, I am studying Staments books in American technical with the right calm. Permaculture and the principles of the Blue Economy are at the base of my actions and projects. I studied sculpture in Venice and at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. I consider myself a craftsman. I would like to meet people with an open and curious mindset. Here the place is very quiet, ideal for relaxing in peace and learning to hug the trees. I really like cooking and I like to experiment ... even if my real passion is animals, plants and mushrooms ... that I find exceptionally beautiful, therefore worthy of respect. I have an ovovegetarian diet that I integrate with some organic products in times of need ... but I'm not an extremist. I am not a smoker and I would rather avoid hosting smokers or those with similar addictions. There would be a lot of work and a lot to learn and for that very reason I prefer people who stay for at least a month ... at least if you are not already a super expert in permaculture and working with plants and mushrooms. I have to set up a laboratory and build the bio swimming pool, finish fencing some of the ground and plant giant bamboo, light hemp and wood to be inoculated with mushrooms. I also have two families of bees; in the future I would like to create a room for practicing apitherapy ... step by step.

Ciao a tutti, I'm Massimo, I live in Costapiana a rural village, located in at 400m. s.l.m. in the municipality of Faedis. Together with my friends Gabriele and Barbar I share my life in contact with nature and passion for agriculture: organic cultivation, recovery of ancient indigenous varieties, maintenance of wooded areas, meadows and pastures. The village is 3 km from the bottom of the valley and is reached along the communal road or by walking along the paths. From the courtyard of the large rustic stone and wood house, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view, and see, on most days the sea on the horizon. The day is divided into various activities, such as: garden and fruit tree management, clearing in the fields, woods and trails, and small building and maintenance jobs. There will be moments of sharing, spirituality and music, embraced by the warm refreshment of a fire under the stars. Our project is to give space to a meeting place for musicians or people who want to get closer to this art, so we have a variety of musical instruments available, and our idea is to be able to develop this with everyones contribution. We have two guest rooms, please bring your own sleeping bag if possible, services and kitchen are communal. There is also spaces for tents, campers or vans, using the facilities in the house. Our cuisine is predominantly vegetarian and vegan, but other food choices do not preclude hospitality. We also welcome couples with children, Barbara and Gabriele have a two-year-old daughter. We prefer to host from April to October for a period of one to a few weeks. We all speak some English.

I, along with my wife we run this 7 hectare farm in the Carniche alps near the Austrian border. We have 4 goats, two pigs, chickens, bees and 2 cows and we make cheese on the farm.

I am the pioneer of an Eco Village under construction, around me are gathering people who want to help the project in their various capacities and so on the farm is like being in an extended family. At this moment everything is evolving! The activities that take place are: to build walls with natural materials (straw, earth, sand ..), look after the small vegetable garden and orchard, clear the forest from brambles and brushwood, organize artistic and / or educational events on agricultural issues. The garden is on the baulatura with Hugelkultur method and BRF technique (with wood chips), permaculture is practiced and experimented with. The volunteers have the opportunity to camp and also to stay in my house in Lignano, 30 minutes from the farm. The structures are not yet complete so it is advisable to return to my home to cook, wash clothes and take a swim in the sea. On the farm you can swim in the river and walk in the surrounding area. We are also one hour away from Venice, Trieste and Udine. I welcome volunteers from May to November, the minimum stay required is 2 weeks. Languages ​​spoken: English and Italian.
