Piacenza

This has been an organic farm since 2006 and we cultivate cereals, vegetables, fruit trees, a small vineyard and woodland. On the farm you can experience and compare old and new farming techniques, we use non intensive methods of farming and pay great attention to quality and respect for the soil. The farm was my dream, I am a teacher and after 25 years of working in nursery schools, recreation centres and as a theatrical entertainer, felt the need to show that there is another way, there are other flavours, rhythms, sounds, nuances and emotions. The fundamental issue at the centre of the farm are the educational and creative activities and importance of food for children and adults in these days. We organize workshops emphasizing the importance of manual activities. The meetings with an artisan offer workshops in various fields (carpentry, DIY solar panels). There is a very friendly family atmosphere.

Ours is a late nineteenth-century farm situated at the foot of the hills of Piacenza, surrounded by fields and vineyards. We have a very diverse vegetable garden which, like the rest of the farm, is completely organic. Volunteers will help in the vegetable garden, with gardening, in the vineyards and with cutting firewood. Another activity is to renovate the farm buildings, including one made in accordance with ecological techniques and using mainly re used materials. A small part of the farm is on the coast, where there are olive trees. Sometimes you go there to clean up the prunings from the olive trees, to renovate the dry stone walls or harvest olives to make olive oil. The farm is about 12 km from Piacenza, reachable by bus . Again with the bus you can go to the river during the summer weekends of the beaches where there are very nice beaches where you can relax and swim. There are no animals on the farm apart from some dogs & cats. You need to be a lover nature and the earth and to be happy to lend a hand when needed.
