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.
