We live very simply in an old house (reachable only by foot) surrounded by woods, with 5 hectares of land at the foot of Mount Igno (1440m). By choice we do not have electricity - for cooking and heating we use a wood-burning stove. There is a spring near the house where we collect our water. We are a couple with children (born 2005 2008, 2010, 2012). We need help all year round for various activities: in the vegetable garden, with the bees (we have 5 hives) with firewood, harvesting fruit, making jam, baking bread, maintaining the house. We are mainly interested in sharing our chosen lifestyle with other people. Meals are vegetarian, using organic produce from the garden or collected from the wild. Accommodation in the house or in a tent. We reply promptly to all letters. I practice yoga. Children welcome. French, German, a little Spanish, Esperanto and English spoken.
I practice agriculture for my own consumption, not for commercial reasons. I grow the major part of my food and also I harvest a lot of wild produce; herbs, flowers and fruit which I eat fresh or dry to conserve. The small pieces of land which I care for are between the hills and mountains and surrounded by woodland. I try to be as self sufficient as possible. The jobs are varied throughout the year in the vegetable garden, woods and with other tasks. I love conviviality, communication, music, and reading aloud. I publish a newspaper "il Seminasogni" about alternative realities to communicate with the outside world. I write poetry. I know many wild plants, edible and medicinal. Cultivating ones own food for me is not work but a joyous occupation. A slow, stress free lifestyle. Accommodation in room, meals vegetarian. English spoken. Due to the earthquake accommodation only possible if you bring a tent or camper van.
