Warning! This is an isolated and free place! We Eckhard (1946), 3 cats: and every 3 weeks my daughters Aiin (2004) and Jade (2007) live our simple self-sufficient lifestyle (electricity and water). We offer a "brainwashing" that is detached from the life of total consumption, stress, the latest fashions, the lights of the city, from the noise of the cars ... being away from this commercial lifestyle, opens your senses and your heart .. enabling you to find your road while in our magical and powerful valley. We are working (!) on this to find a balance, between the needs of the people here (vegetable garden, comfort, culture) and nature. There is enough space: 14 ha carob trees, olive trees, almond trees, fruit trees (figs, oranges, lemons, avocados, nuts, apricots, pistachio, pomegranates, persimmons, apples), fields of wheat, vineyards and of course many brambles, a good spring, the vegetable garden throughout the year, a natural swimming pool, a sauna, a solar shower, solar drier and a hexagonal wooden kitchen, bathroom and a compost WC. Accommodation is in a wooden house for 2 people and a house which has been rebuilt using green methods which can accommodate 4 more people.

This is a collective project of 7 friends and a girl located in the heart of the Madonie Regional Park, in Sicily. A project based on the principles of sustainability, permaculture, ecology and transition. Among our activities, we take care of the farm that hosts us (a farmhouse located in a six-hectare wooded area), we produce small agricultural productions (we take care of a vegetable garden mainly for self-production and an olive grove), productions of natural teas and cosmetics, we work in the field of environmental education and youth exchanges. The jobs that WWOOF members will be involved in are the management of the garden and / or the creation of new horticultural areas, harvesting and processing of fruit, maintenance and cleaning of the forest. Our work is also linked to the management of events and courses. Travelers will be accommodated in a camping area near the house and will be able to use the common areas of the house (where some of us live) and all the common outdoor areas (internal kitchen, living room, bathroom with shower). We prefer to host from May to October, a period in which the climate is usually optimal for camping. The nearest town, the charming Polizzi Generosa (about 8 km away from Porto di Terra, there is no public transport to reach it), can be reached from Palermo and from Cefalù by bus (some daily routes). From there we would come to pick you up at your arrival, and accompany you if you want your day off, and you can go to the sea or the city. Even the territory where we are offers you the possibility of discovery, you can take breathtaking treks in the Madonie Park either independently or together with a guide who is part of our team or explore the picturesque villages of the surrounding area.

Our farm is located in the Simeto river valley with an incredible view of mount Etna surrounded by 3 ha of orange orchard, olive trees and an organic vegetable garden, chickens, geese, dogs and cats. The Waters of Etna converge on the farm and offer many opportunities for experiencing and creating water gardens. There are 1000 square meters of old buildings that we have restored a bit by bit because the property had been abandoned for about 20 years. Our intent is to be economically self-sufficient for the small group of people that live here respecting our biorhythms and the nature that surrounds us. We grow olive trees and citrus trees, prune in spring, in summer, irrigate, fertilize and harvest the olives in the fall and gather our oranges from December to April which we ship every week to customers, and from 2013 we have taken care of an abandoned avocado orchard and will harvest them too. We like to do our work on meditation, eating mainly fresh organic (when possible) vegetarian food and provide a break from the internet to our WWOOFers (although you can take a well-deserved afternoon off for a full immersion in the internet café 3 km away). We plan to continue rejuvenating the citrus trees, to improve and enlarge the vegetable garden in the spring, every so often we host someone who is interested in the project, and sometimes there are seminars. We welcome those of you who are willing and experienced in these activities, designers, artists and workers - meditators. We are open all year-round to WWOOFers hospitality in shared rooms with 2 or 3 beds.

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).

I'm a Belgian immigrate, who has been in Sicily for years now. I took on an abandoned house in the country and we want to produce all the fruit, vegetables and legumes I and others need for food self-sufficiency. Aside from that, I would also like to introduce poultry for home consumption and actually I'm able to host tourists. I still would like to build a workshop for processing dry fruits and vegetables The house is mainly restored, and the fields, orchards and gardens are partially planted, some are growing and some still have to be planted. For now, WWOOFers are hosted in a dormitory in the main house. We always eat together and we are open to all diets. I speak Italian, French and English. You can reach us by public transport to Modica where I can pick you up. The nearest village is 4 km from home where there are all the basic shops. Nearby, you can visit the Cava d'Ispica, Cava Paradiso, Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto. I'm working towards a type of agriculture and simple living based on self and economic autonomy. I know that 100% would be a utopia, but we try to get close, to prove that you can live well with a self-managed work.. 
This farm is situated in Leano Piazza Armerina and is mainly an olive grove so help is needed with the pruning, clearing the land and the olive harvest from September to December, during the other months there is not always someone on the farm so stays by arrangement in that time. The house is newly built and has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a living room /kitchen. Accommodation for a couple of WWOOFers in own room with bathroom. Meals not vegetarian but can be on request. Children welcome under supervision of parent/s as the countryside can be a dangerous place. Must be able to speak some Italian as my son, who interprets is not always on the farm. Spanish & French spoken.

This is a small farm located on Mount Etna, in the village of Puntalazzo di Mascali, 700 meters above sea level, composed of some lava stone buildings surrounded by about 4 hectares of terraced land, where I cultivate strictly organic grapes from must, cherries, hazelnuts and oil olives. I live on the farm with my two collaborators from Wagira from Sri Lanka and Asen from Bulgaria. The agricultural work takes place mainly from April to June (maintenance of terraced ladders, work in the vineyard, hazelnut orchard, cherry harvesting, olive trees), and from early August to the whole of October (harvesting hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, olives). I follow and often do the work personally, but in my absence Wagira and Asen are always present. Up to now I have occasionally hosted passing travelers, Buddhist monks and artists in search of inspiration, and now it stimulates me the opportunity to host WWOOFERS eager to experience this place and this time within nature and the possibility to exchange experiences and points of view. Accommodation in a single or double room with bathroom, in one of the farm buildings, where there is a communal kitchen, with the possibility of having our main meal together. The farm has a WI-FI connection. The territory in which I live, between Catania and Taormina, offers many opportunities for recreation nearby, from walks on Etna to the sea at ​​Taormina and Marina di Cottone, or visits to Catania, the Nebrodi mountains etc., public transport is not good so we need to be well organized!

We would be happy to accommodate couples. Everyday we go to the land where Alex will work with you on the jobs to be done. The activities for which we would like to have help include: preparation and maintenance of the garden, worm culture, caring for the seedlings, pruning, making a chicken coop and many other things In your free time there is plenty to see and visit, we have mountain bikes that you can use for small trips. We try to use our own produce in the kitchen as much as possible. Meals will be shared with us, we ask for collaboration for preparation and washing up. Federica loves to devote herself to cooking "healthily". We are omnivorous, but we eat meat very rarely and only when we know where it came from. Alex is a very helpful person, as well as being competent in various fields, such as computing and design, he likes themes such as bio-building, soil regeneration, mulching and beekeeping.
