When you dream alone it's a dream, when you dream in two the reality begins. This quote by Che Guevara encompasses the whole philosophy of wwoof on my farm based on sharing, exchange and social relations. On my farm every person is well accepted, the important thing is that you are predisposed to give a bit of yourself, of your time and experience for a fruitful and constructive exchange. The farm is located in the province of Foggia, between San Severo and San Marco in Lamis, at the foot of the Gargano National Park, with a wonderful view towards the mountains. The fields are cultivated with broad beans, chickpeas, turnip greens, ancient grains. I also breed pigs, cows and hens and this year I opened a stone mill to mill cereals into organic flours and also prepared a room to welcome the wwoofers. At the entrance of the farm there is a bus stop for public transport to reach the neighbouring towns. I also own a forest and a small olive grove in a different area. I am a very open, sunny and friendly person, I love meeting new people and love the nature that surrounds me, I have been in Erasmus 3 times in countries like Poland, Czech Republic and Lithuania and I speak English well. I like to share my lifestyle that is not just work and agriculture but also travel, parties, friendships and fun ...... Welcome!

We are a family of three (Paola, Mark and Diego). Mark is from Germany and Paola from Rome and since 2013 we have lived permanently in Valle d'Itria, in Puglia, near Ostuni. We are working in permaculture, deep ecology, "inner work" on the individual and on community levels, dedicated mainly to regenerating the land and the water and on the social level to implement the network of the local community. We take care of a half hectare of olive grove, where we changed the monoculture of olives and planted a food forest. For soil regeneration we make and use effective micro organisms, worm compost and organic agricultural regenerative preparations. We experiment with systems for water conservation, natural filtration systems through the use of plants and movement of water. For the preservation and processing of food we mainly use fermentation and drying techniques. We make soaps and natural cosmetics. For cultivating vegetables we are looking for the most appropriate technique to use due to the scarcity of water in our area. Mark also works as a beekeeper, Paola is an art therapist. We offer seminars inspired by the thoughts of Charles Eisenstein, experiences between deep ecology, permaculture, the theatre and the clown. The long-term projects which we will be busy with in the coming months are to build a tiny house (house on wheels) and to waterproof the water tank using natural techniques. We live about 4 km from Ostuni, in a rented house which is a 10 min walk from our land. Accommodation is in an outer room of the house which is also used as a laundry; or in a caravan with double bed in the olive grove. Compost toilet.

We are a family of 4: Mattia and Francesca, with Olga (born in 2009) and Nemo (2013). We moved in Oria (BR) in November of 2013 with plans to set up a farming/educational activity based on the design in permaculture, and on sustainability and ecology. At the end of 2016 we established the farm with the dream of finding a balance with Mother Earth and to produce food that provides wellness and health to people and at the same time does not subtract fertility to the soil. We are founding members of the association "Nautilus - Permaculture and Sustainability" that works to promote a culture that respects the cycles of nature, through workshops, courses and events. We are also part of the project Case delle Erbe that promotes and enhances Italian traditions on culinary and medicinal uses of herbs. We have hosted volunteers since 2015. The activities of the next two years (2017 and 2018) will be: the start of the vegetable gardens and orchards, the construction of farm structures as much as possible self-built with natural materials, animal care, manufacturing bio-fertilizers and compost, harvesting and processing produce. As much as possible, we eat vegetarian, organic and self-produced food; sometimes meat or fish. The accommodation is in a caravan, tent or yurt or traditional stone cottage, depending on availability and season. The kitchen and bathroom are shared. We love people who are enthusiastic, curious and communicative, and enjoy being with children. Our project is in the starting phase and requires a lot of energy: it's important to have a lot of motivation and desire to learn. We live more or less 5 km from Oria, the nearest town. We have bikes available to explore the area. If possible, we can give you a lift when we go to town or to other places.

Situated about 4 km from Torre Lapillo, on the Ionian coast, in a Mediterranean forest of 5 hectares, surrounded by ancient olive groves, is this family-run farm and campsite. The main activity is the production of organic extra virgin olive oil. There is also a natural agriculture vegetable garden and a chicken coop that meet the needs of family and guests, and they also produce a lot of jams and preserves. Throughout the year, but especially during the summer, we also have a campsite for people in search of a quiet place to stay in harmony with nature, which has a low environmental impact. In spring and autumn, we are also a teaching farm, thanks to the presence of a bare footing trail, a small museum of country culture and workshops. For more than 15 years, we have offered hospitality to cultural events, workshops for making natural soaps and essential oils organized by the association. Wwoofers are happily accommodated in the house or in one of three wooden bungalows, except in summer, when we provide tents. The busiest periods are during the olive harvest, the pruning of the trees and the month of August, when we’d like a hand managing the campsite. The working hours are flexible and can be arranged according to the everyones needs. The place is isolated, which is in fact its greatest asset! On foot or by bike, however, you can go hiking in the beautiful area and you can easily reach the sea and the small town of Torre Lapillo, which in winter is almost a ghost town, but during the summer months very busy.
Our farm is located in the Gargano an area which is very famous for its national park and beautiful seashore. We are residents of the town of Peschici - a small village with ca. 4,000 inhabitants.
