Venezia

Summer List
We are currently two in our family (Luigi who is retired and Barbara who works in Venice) and we live permanently in our house on the island of Vignole. We have a winter vegetable garden, a small vineyard and we grow artichokes, which is the traditional culture in this area. We do not use chemicals of any kind. With the collaboration of wwoofers we plan to clean and tidy up the land, clear the vegetation around the drainage channels in the fields, continue to care for a small Elm forest, do small maintenance jobs and whatever else may be necessary to improve the property. The land is about six hectares and is located on the lagoon of Venice and is accessible both by public transport (vaporetto) and by boat can arrive directly in front of the house. We have five very nice black cats, useful and good hunters. We are not vegetarians. Wwoofers will be able to stay in a little house built in wood and bricks next to the house where we live, it's very comfortable and welcoming. The best times to come to the farm are spring and autumn. Isola delle Vignole is a 15-minute vaporetto ride from the centre of Venice where there are a thousand things to see and do. Barbara and I can speak French, English and Arabic.
Summer List
This is a 18 hectare organic farm where we produce mixed cereals and vegetables and also breed horses and donkeys, have a fruit orchard with old fruit varieties and a synergic vegetable garden. Situated within easy reach of Venezia, Padova & Treviso, the nearest bus stop is 1,5 kms and the train station 3 kms. Other interesting sites include la Laguna, the remains of the ancient city of Altino, the walks along the river and a bird sanctuary. The farm is also the seat of an association which promotes organic cultivation and awareness. I live on the farm my partner (who is here 2 days a week), two helpers and others. The farm building are still being renovated and accommodation is in tents or in a shared communal room where you can sleep in a sleeping bag. Help needed in the vegetable garden, with wood cutting, fencing, with domestic jobs and preparing meals. I ask your patience with the fact that we cannot always work alongside you. We are interested in the training of animals, their use in agriculture and Pet therapy. We are interested in construction using green methods, straw bales, clay and other natural materials and we are hoping to transform the farm into a social and teaching farm. We speak basic English, are vegetarian and non smokers. There are no children on the farm. Minimum stay 2 weeks.
