Our organic farm of 6 hectares extends over hilly terrain and is dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees and the breeding of chickens and rabbits outside. In addition to recovering the ancient olive groves planted centuries ago (destroyed, except for the radical mass, in 1967 due to a devastating fire), our intent is to safeguard and spread our traditional culture linked to the production and preparation of food. Currently the recovery of olive trees is going hand in hand with the restoration of dry stone walls. Depending on the season, the WWOOFers participate in pruning and cleaning olive trees, olive harvesting, restoration of dry stone walls, contribute to the care of the farmyard animals, the vegetable garden and the orchard, participate in the preparation of homemade products, prepare meals, learn our traditional cuisine. From December 2016 we are also educational farm! This year the farm has four new friends: three Skudde sheep and a Sardinian donkey named Lampo. We are a few miles from the sea, from Pisa and Lucca. Languages ​​spoken: English, Russian and French as well as Italian. Contact Helena and / or Giacomo, preferably by e-mail. We need help throughout the year, especially in the summer months.
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
Our farm is small (7 ha) and family-run. We are a family of 5 of which 3 have finished studies and are working abroad. We bought the farm in 1981, after we had been working on a bilateral German project in Africa for some years. In 1981 the farm was converted to organic. In the meantime our activities are limited to olive trees. We do not have animals or a vegetable garden. The work for WWOOFers therefore depends on the season: land clearing and grass cutting., preparations for the harvest of olives and the harvest itself from mid-October to December.. August and September are the two months when - due to lack of work and considering the heat - we do not need WWOOFers. The work is not very varied and we therefore only ask for 4 hours a day, except for the olive harvest when we all work together, also in the afternoons. Meals are mainly vegetarian and partially organic. Accommodation is in a comfortable appartment on the ground floor of our house. We can welcome. 1 or 2 people for a minimum stay of at least one week. Our wwoofers should be independent and enterprising. Our interests are classical music, reading (we have many books in English, German and Italian) and politics. German, English and French spoken. Each year we are getting older. Take into consideration that in 2019 we are 75 (Sigismund) and 72 (Ursula). Recent wwoofers could have been our grandchildren, which was very pleasant and Interesting.
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.
