This sanctuary for saved animals is situated in the Parco Nazionale di Migliarino, in a beautiful area with rivers, sea and pinewoods. The cities of Livorno and Pisa are nearby. It is a sanctuary for domestic animals: horses, donkeys, cows, goats, pigs, rabbits, sheep and dogs who have been saved from extreme suffering by various animalistic associations and who were destined to be killed and now live freely on four HAs of land and are cared for according to their needs. It is also a centre for environmental education, to teach about vegan philosophy and non violence. Particularly in the warmer months the sanctuary is visited by schools and families who can see and get to know these animals who are normally hidden from view in intensive farming systems. We teach about the environment in relation to the meat and dairy industry and the right of respect for all living things. Accommodation is in the house in a room shared with other volunteers, meals organic and vegan eaten together, no smoking in the house, drugs or alcohol. WWOOFers help with the care of the animals, guided tours and events at the refuge as well as in the household. Please be aware that the works at the sanctuary are physically demanding. We are in need of an extra hand all year long and happy to welcome strong and independent individuals. English spoken.
This is an organic farm nestled in the hills of the town of Santa Luce in the province of Pisa. Jonathan has managed the farm since 2012, and his girlfriend Valentina, his family and friends all help with the project. There are many animals, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, two beautiful dogs, 3 adorable cats and finally our friends the bees, 10 hives. We also have an agritourism, in the holiday season we rent two apartments to tourists. We need help in the vegetable garden, garden, olive grove, with the animals, with making preserves and jams, in preparing products to sell, and with the many other jobs on a farm throughout the year, the farm is in the process of converting to biodynamic. The accommodation for wwoofers may vary depending on the period, either sharing an apartment with other WWOOFers, or in rooms in the main house- those who wish can stay in a tent. The meals are largely vegetarian, but occasionally we also eat meat from the farm. I (Jonathan) speak Italian, other members of the family speak English. Minimum stay of 15 days, if you are interested we will send you a more detailed presentation when you contact us.

Ciao, we are Giampaolo and Eleonora, and we live on our organic farm in the hills between Pisa and Livorno, 1 km. from Collesalvetti (LI). Our house is a typical Tuscan farmhouse from the 1800s with 5 rooms for guests, one for friends and wwoofers and one for us. The room for WWOOFers has private entrance and bathroom and meals, almost esclusively, are vegetarian, and are prepared and shared together. We have 5 hectares of mainly wooded land with vineyard, olive grove, fruit and vegetable garden for our consumption and guests. In addition to caring for the earth we dedicate ourselves to welcome the guests in the summer months and organize courses and seminars devoted to self-knowledge and all holistic disciplines related to psychological well-being. We have no poultry or livestock but a dog and two cats. The place is very nice and we would like to share as well as food, shelter and work also trips out to sea in our sailing boat. You can also also participate in the events that we host - we will inform you which they are if you indicate the period in which you are interested to come here. We need a hand to make firewood for the winter, for the care of the vineyard and making wine, with the olive trees and the fruit trees. The effort required will never be more than half a day or a day and a day helping, depending on the season and projects. For example, with a little help we could plant a synergic vegetable garden, restore the bio-pond and accommodate two horses. We also prepare fruit jams and syrups of elder and acacia, collect nettles and wild asparagus, wild herbs and what the nature and the seasons allow us.
This farm is situated in the commune of San Miniato, and is of 44 hectares of which 13 are vineyard and 6.5 olive grove. The farm is certified biodynamic and we believe in sustainable and social agriculture. If you come to our farm you can take part in all the phases of work, which vary according to the season, from the pruning and care of the growing plants up to the harvest, at which point you can also help with jobs in the wine cellar. In October and November it is also possible to participate in the olive harvest. We also have experience of working with apprentices from all over the world and university students.

Hi all, thanks for taking the time to look into our profile. We are a small family of winegrowers, based in the small village of Chianni (Tuscany), and passionate of Natural Agriculture techniques. In summer 2018 we attended a Permaculture Design Course and we have just started an Experimental Permaculture Centre, a project whose goal is to achieve self-sustainability and resilienc and promote Natural Agriculture techniques. In order to do so we plan to collaborate with Univerisities and share results through organization os specific courses and meetups. Ultimately, we would like to be part of the growing network of resilience and sustainable centres worldwide Though we are just in the beginning of our path, we have already started two projects: 1. Implantation of a new permaculture vineyard on the old dry-wall terraces of the farm 2. Reforestation of a small deforested area using the principles of Syntropic Agriculture, developed in Brazil by Ernst Gotsch Our house was built in 1650 and we own a land of 3.5 ha, mostly terraced with dry walls (UNESCO heritage) built between the 1920 and 1940. We are at 450 metres above sea level with stunning views on the central hills of Tuscany, from Volterra to Pontedera and we are at easy reach from the Airport of Pisa. Please join us! We need your enthusiasm, curiosity and "can do" attitude. Together we'll setup and take care of the garden; you'll learn about maintenance of a permaculture vineyard and learn techniques of natural winemaking; we'll plant trees for the syntropyc food forest, and we'll show you how to take care of the animals. Accommodation will be in the main house, in a room with double beds and bunk beds and shared bathroom. Hope to see you soon! Stefano, Nicoletta & baby Federico
I was born in Milan, and over 10 years ago I came to live in Tuscany with my partner. I am 63 and was a photographer by profession, then I designed gardens and was a gardener, now I am a farmer. I bought this farm in 2003, it had been abandoned for many years. I personally followed all the restoration work and quickly made it into a farm where on 4 ha we cultivate olives and herbs. We have been certified organic and biodynamic for 8 years. For 5 years we have produce exclusively essential oils. Help needed mainly in April, May and June when we harvest herbs and flowers, which we then distill. Accommodation in a room for periods of 1-2 weeks. I do not have animals except for 2 dogs and a 2 cats, all with excellent characters. I speak English and some French. I do not have a TV but a great deal of music, mainly classical.
We are an innovative farm whose goal is to create an equestrian culture centre of excellence. Angelika had the dream of creating a center of excellence for horses and people based on love, respect and knowledge of these beautiful animals. The ground, born of his passion, carries out the activity of breeding, training based on the teaching of Horsemanship and Classic Riding. It is a unique place and a point of reference in Italy where the highest quality is found in the relationship with horses, in the environment and in the structures. So, if you feel attracted to horses, if you want to experience a unique and fascinating, intense and formative, here, in the legendary Tuscany, there is the opportunity to do it. No matter which world you come from and what your level is, Angelika and her team will be delighted to share their knowledge with you in a way that is tailored to your needs.  The farm covers 25 hectares of land, 2/3 of which are flat and 1/3 of the hilly. Most of the land is dedicated to grazing because we believe that horses should live as much as possible outdoors and in packs. OUR MAIN ACTIVITIES ARE: Horse breeding and training Horse boarding Teaching: Horsemanship and Knowledge of nature and psychology of the horse Classic horse riding Life and Business Individual and group coaching Our facilities - A modern stable with large adjoining boxes and paddocks, a shower and a lamp. - 20x60 indoor riding arena in sand - 20x60m exterior riding in synthetic allweather - Drained Canter Track with wood chips of 800 m - Large Playground with specific obstacles and games - Rods of various sizes to learn how to play freely with the horse - 15 ha of paddocks where horses can graze in herds
We are Paolo (1985) & Sofia (1986) and a for little over a year we have been working on our ‘Piante Innovative’ project on 3 has of land in the hills in Palaia (Pi), cultivating useful and unusual plants to improve sustainability and ecological coexistence. Between the plant nursery, the olive trees, the fields, the garden and the wood the work is very varied; we reproduce the plants, collect and select the seeds, distill herbs, make preparations for the welfare of the soil ... all topped off with the creativity and experimentation. We like to share this adventure and the silence of nature with others. The plants keep us busy us in all the seasons, as does the maintenance of the greenhouse and of the surrounding spaces. In September we harvest Cannabis sativa, in October / November the olives. We host WWOOFers for a minimum period of two weeks, in a small but comfortable caravan for 2 people (possibly a couple). Meals are mainly vegetarian and organic. We have two large dogs and a cat. We speak Italian, Spanish, English and we can understand a little French.

My partner and I together manage about 3 acres of land that are divided between an orchard still very young but full of ancient truths and endangered and the 'vegetable garden that we try to work with minimal use of mechanical means. During the summer we transform our products and throughout the year make bread with natural yeast and using organic ancient grains that we are lucky to find a few miles from us. Every month we participate in 2-3 organic markets that are organized in our area and we would like to share with our guests. We live in the country just a few steps from our lands, in a small house in which from time to time we organize musical events, cultural, culinary. We prefer to accommodate 1-2 people in one room of the house for periods of not less than one week, we have little more than 30 years and eat vegetarian. We have 2 small children. G. speaks very good Spanish and English.
