Situated in Giarre (comune del Parco dell’Etna), this is a large centre in the province of Catania at the foot of mount Etna and a few kms from the Jonion sea. The farm (13,000 m2) is family run, everyone helps with the necessary activities but the jobs are mainly carried out by Tury, the head of the family, and Guido his son. We are getting a room in the house ready to host WWOOFers but until this is ready you will be accommodated in Guidos apartment a km away approx. halfway between the two pieces of land we work. Transport is good and convenient. We get around mainly on bicycles. The bus stop is just below our house and the railway station is a few hundred metres away. We are transforming an old citrus orchard into a fruit garden and planting trees that the climate permits (we have about 80 tropical and subtropical plants - all certified bio). We want to enlarge the vegetable garden and start a small plant nursery and greenhouse. We mainly need help with maintenance, (cleaning, working the land, harvesting, maintaining and repairing buildings, preserving our produce, with the farmyard animals etc) but there is always the chance to learn (for example grafting, pruning etc).
