We are Giorgia and Francesco, in 2005 we moved from the city to this land in the Mugello hills that was almost abandoned. We work on the development of a project that we like and that spreads the values that are important to us: land care , people care and fair share. The art is intertwining (in an efficient but peaceful way) the projects, the family (we have 3 children of less than 10 years), the guests and the observation of nature. We organize courses in permaculture, AOR, meditation, herbal gathering and more. We have rooms and shared kitchen where we welcome the participants but also the passing tourists. We have a vegetable garden where we like to experiment, what we learn in the courses. We have chestnut trees, olive and woodland where we take the wood to heat us and the water we use. For years we have also two places for asylum seekers who we help in the process of integration into society: we offer accommodation for the woofers in the room with bunk beds in the apartment shared with them also to promote a cultural exchange. The meals will be prepared and consumed mainly together. But what can wwoofers help us with? Depending on the season there will be activities in the vegetable garden, small construction works, pruning and harvesting fruit or olives. In October the collection of chestnuts. And then work in the woodland for wood. We are on a hill at 430 meters, the view is beautiful, 6 km from the village. If you also want to know Florence or other realities of the area, a car can be useful. We speak English, French a little Spanish. We request a stay of at least 15 days, good hand skills and goodwill. A bit of autonomy in the work is welcome as we can not always be together for the different activities that we must follow here.
This is a farm with an agritourism and we produce wine, olive oil, ancient grains, honey and vegetables, the latter for domestic consumption. Our agricultural production follows the principles of organic farming, far beyond the stipulations of the certification and without compromise. I am convinced that it is the only type of agriculture possible. On the farm, as well as my family of 4, there are 4 permanent employees and 5 employees for the tourist season from May to October. The public transport that arrives closest to us (3 km away) is the bus: therefore we need to be clear about arrival times so that we can collect you. Activities on the farm vary depending on the season. In the tourist season, as well as working in the vineyard and olive grove we pay a lot of attention to the vegetable gardens which produce vegetables for the kitchen. As is necessary on a farm we face the variety of things to do with flexibility and punctuality. We host in an apartment with separate bathroom and kitchen, the kitchen is shared with other people who have lunch while working on the farm, and there are not seperate bedrooms, but we have the bunk beds in the same room where you eat. Usually we can host a maximum of two people simultaneously, for approximately 10 days. We speak English.
