Lucca

A family farm which has been cultivated for generations of about 45 hectares of land, of which 18 are vineyards and 1 is olive grove. We are a young couple and we are the custodians of this land which we cultivate through organic and biodynamic farming; there is a youthful spirit throughout the farm. We are a few kilometers from Lucca. The main activities take place in the vineyard and in the wine cellar: those interested in learning the art of winemaking can follow the stages of cultivation and the processing of the grapes. For those interested in the activities of the agritourism you can participate and help during the wine tastings organized for our guests and work together doing small gardening jobs around the farm. We can accommodate up to 2 wwoofers at a time up to a maximum of one month. Accommodation, which is in rooms in a two-story building next to the office with canteen which is used and shared by everyone, is three bedrooms and one bathroom, lunches are shared but for other meals wwoofers are autonomous and during the grape harvest meals will be eaten with the interns on the farm. We ask you to help with the cleaning of communal areas. You may find yourselves working with people who work on the farm and with the people with whom you share the apartment. The harvest and all types of work are very challenging but carried out with enthusiasm. Public transportation in our area is quite good, there is the WiFi in some rooms.
The name of this place means bamboogrove. Here where we'll work together, among nearly 15 mt (50 ft) high green canes, with branches full of evergreen leaves populated by a huge quantity of birds. You leave the main road and the town along it, with its comforts but noises too, and soon after you discover our little forest of canes, surrounded by an amphitheater of low hills and cottages, diving in the quiet of a suddenly re-found country. We'll be waiting for you to draw canes from the grove and work with them in order to realize structures, sculptures, elements of furniture that will give a touch of beauty everywhere they'll go. We'll dine inside the grove, under a refreshing roof of leaves, or heating ourselves under Sun's coziness in the front green field: a picnic in an unusual scenery that lets us feel daily like we are on holiday. In the afternoon you'll have the chance to ride the bike to reach the coast and enjoy the sunset at the seaside. During the summer time you'll be hosted by Sara, in a tent in front of her house. You will have a private toilet and the chance to use the shared spaces in the house (kitchen and garden). During the winter time Alberto and Pina will be your host and they will share their humble house. They have a bio and vegan diet. English spoken. Note: This is a proper forest so...there are insects, spiders and mosquitos. During the summer time could be hot and sometime we have to work under the sun or under the rain so it's good to have clothes and shoes for every circumstance. During the day time work in the forest the toilet is open air so a little bit of ability to adapt is request.
We are a small organic farm composed of a young couple of thirty-year-olds who have recently become farmers after having always lived in big cities all over Europe. We produce an olive oil of the highest quality, wine and we also have a small vegetable garden for self-consumption. The Wwoofers will be able to collaborate with us in the grape harvest (September) and the olives (October / November), the maintenance of the vegetable garden (all year except winter), the pruning of plants (winter and spring), and to the general maintenance of the property and of the woods. In addition, we are constantly looking for new things to experiment (for example beekeeping, brewery, ...) and then we look for Wwoofers who want to learn, but also to share their experiences and teach us what they know. The farm covers an area of ​​about 15 hectares, mostly in the woods, and is only 6 km from the centre of Lucca, to which it is very well connected by buses, trains and a cycle path. The village of Ponte a Moriano is a 5-minute walk away. The accommodation is in large and comfortable rooms of a nineteenth-century villa in which we live and surrounded by our olive groves and vineyards. We like to share meals with the Wwoofers, and we usually take turns preparing meals. We speak French, English, Italian and Spanish fluently.
This is a cultural association that was born to enhance health, well-being, harmony, joy, peace, universal love; it supports aid projects to abandoned children in India, takes part in the protection of Mother Earth and its creatures; promotes meetings on Oriental cultures and philosophies, nutrition and natural medicine and ecological excursions. We are designing a small vegetable garden and synergic garden in connection with the energy of the cosmos we would like to start from November, we have a 500 m2 garden garden and we ask for help to build an outside home that is in synergy with cosmic forces and serves to produce vegetables for the self-sustaining of the people living in the association. We are vegans and we ask the wwoofers to eat with us in the evening following our vegan principles, other meals you can prepare in the kitchen but always following at least vegetarian principles. In the home and in the garden you cannot use your cell phone but we give you the availability of an ethernet line for those who want to use your computer, we can accommodate one wwoofer at a time and for a maximum of one month in a small room with shared bathroom, whoever would like is welcome to participate in our yoga classes, tai chi, postural reorganization, qi gong. We ask you to keep the premises that you use clean and tidy. We are a 20 minute walk through the woods from the sea and close to the cities of Pisa and Lucca, the lake and the Apuan Alps. The public transport is quite good.
This is a project of life, a point of view on our future, first of all an exchange of ideas and work, of art and nature, a building site in evolution, reflecting on how it is possible to do without necessarily resorting to overbuilding, but rather reappropriating of ancient crafts and working methods, (dry stone wall, earthenware, raw earth bamboo, etc.) Our house is being renovated in self-construction and we need the wwoofers to help us with the work; whoever comes to us can learn how to make bricks of earth, to build with raw earth, learn to work the bamboo, see what the environment offers and transform what it offers us in resources for our restructuring, an experience that will then be useful for those who decide to restore a an old house as we did. During the stay it may be that courses are held with teachers on the most varied techniques of green building and materials recovery, the house, as well as being our home is a school yard where we organize courses to learn ancient or new techniques that we need to go forward with the restructuring. We also need a hand to take care of our animals, which become more and more numerous, and the garden, at the moment the inhabitants are 2 humans, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 1 donkey and 1 pony. Wwoofers will be housed in tents, will have their own external bathroom with a shower. We live in the woods, but in a few minutes you can get to the bar of the village for every extra need, to get to our house there is a short walking path to do, it takes less than 5 minutes. For the moment we are organized to accommodate only in the summer months, from May to September.
This biodynamic farm consists of 4 has of land in the hills with woodland and olives in Orbicciano in Val Freddana and 3 has of fields in the plains where the land is more fertile and easier to work, at Saltocchio near Lucca.  At Saltocchio we cultivate an enormous family vegetable garden so that we never lack for vegetables and fruit in season for ourselves and for the families who buy our produce directly from us. We need help with harvesting vegetables and various other jobs in the fields, and also with caring for the donkeys and in the garden. Respect for nature and social responsibility are the basis of our work, the agritourism is a tool to help us to promote these beliefs. We live where the agritourism is, at Orbicciano about 20 km from Lucca, there is not good public transport, but it is in a very beautiful place with lots of opportunities for beautiful walks. Any trips to the other land are done in our car. We do not have WiFi at Orbicciano but there is a place where we can share an internet line, at  Saltocchio, where we have another house, we have WiFi. Our family is made up of  F. & E. & 3 girls, 8, 6, 5 and a few months. We share all our meals with you but ask for help with preparation and clearing up. Accommodation in a room in the agritourism or when it is full in a tent near the house sharing the bathroom and kitchen in the house.
This is a 50 hectare farm with 25 ha of vineyards, 6 ha olive grove and some pigs, chickens, bees and rabbits. WWOOFers can help in the vineyards, sometimes with the animals, with the grape harvest, with other small jobs on the farm, and are naturally expected to help with household tasks and keeping the farm and their rooms in order. Accommodation is in an independent building, a decadent old house, with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We share lunch, but in the evening you cater for yourselves (with food supplied by us). Ideally you need to be independently minded. During the grape harvest the farm revives the festive spirit, with many happy people here who are dedicated and work seriously. This is a real farm. We have been Biodynamic since 2002 and organic since 1997. Public transport is not very good in our area. English and French spoken.

We have a small farm of nearly 15 hectare which we are redeveloping a old vineyard and orchards, with bringing in organic vegetable gardens on a permaculture basis...We eat food grown on our land and try and pass on the responsibility of self sustainability. We will show you how to make wine and cheeses and flour from chestnuts in season. Starting and finishing times depending on the seasons, planting and harvesting. For days off we like folk to see the area and they can leave 7:30am on the bus and arrive back Sunday evening and I pick them up from the Railway station, we are a base for visits all over Tuscany, and with Pisa Airport and low airfares all over Europe. The help at the moment is watering, weeding, mulching and fertilising, replanting and cutting firewood But the exciting times are nearly here.., in March we are getting ready for Spring! Pruning olive trees, preparing the land clearing, ploughing and fertilizing. We are really looking for those with Building and mechanical experience or those who are used to manual work ..above all those who can work independently with minimal supervision and have practical life skills. The help requires someone who is reasonably fit and highly motivated and prepared to learn skills.
