The house where I live (with my son, when he returns from university) is located in a small village of about 15 houses that were completely abandoned and then purchased by a group of people with the intenzione to create an eco village. We are 7km from the small town of Anghiari and is home to 12 families, some of the houses are holiday homes. I have a ha of land with olive trees, an orchard and a small vegetable garden, there is always something to do, work in the vegetable garden, grass cutting, maintenance of dry stone walls, maintenance of the house. We also organize courses and meetings about Ecological Communication, when a there is meeting I also need help organizing the hospitality. Accommodation for WWOOFers is in a tent or caravan (when it is free), and there is the possibility to get in touch with the world of eco-villages, as we are active members of the Italian Network of Ecological Villages (RIVE).

Farm with a workshop where we make seitan, miso, creams, sauces, wine and grape juice which we sell at local markets. Sometimes we make bread, sweets, tofu and natto. We eat good food and are creative in the kitchen using many cereals and vegetables, but we are not vegetarian. There are 5 hectares of olives, a vineyard, barley, millet and legumes. Help needed all year round: often in the workshop but also in the vineyard, olive grove and fields. Surrounded by woodland, we are 1.5 km from the nearest bus stop, 12 km from Monte San Savino, 35 km from Siena and 30 km from Arezzo. Meals with me and sometimes my three children (22, 20 & 17 ). Minimum stay two weeks. The house is surrounded by woodland and we are 1,5 kms from the bus stop (3-4 a day). Accommodation in caravan or tent near the workshop. I prefer to host 2-3 WWOOFers at a time, and during the harvest even more are welcome! English and Spanish spoken.
