Summer List
We are a couple who hope to reach total self sufficiency and are immersed in the Sabine hills, near we have mountains for trekking and freeclimbing and a cool stream where in summer were we go for picnics or a siesta during the hottest hours. Rome is 50km away and by train you arrive in 50 minutes in the city centre. We grow vegetables, fruit, olive trees, we have a greenhouse of 4000m2 and 14 hectares of arable land and woods. We carry out natural and sustainable agriculture, we collect wild plants that we sell together with our other products to the AIAB market in Testaccio-RM- on Sundays. When we do not sell everything, we transform and make preserves, jams, pickles, vinegar, liqueurs, herbal teas ... We are a couple but we often host friends who help us in exchange for hospitality and people who they want to build a different world gravitate around us and we try to do it together. There is alo 83-year-old Nonna Maria who is still superactive, she makes bread, desserts and then takes care of the vegetable garden. We want to host wwoofers because we love to travel and meet new people to share life in synergy with nature, aiming for self-sufficiency and total self-production. Now we want to open a camping site using natural and recycled materials, we also need help with green building. We can accommodate a person or a couple in a small house with bathroom, otherwise tent or caravan. We speak Italian, English, French and Spanish. Our goal is to practice, learn, share and spread a lifestyle based on natural wellness. Local and healthy food; body care through ayurvedic massage and kalari (we are also masseurs), the use of medicinal and other plants that we prepare when possible. We use only natural products to clean the house and the body, those of you who come here must do the same. See you soon!

Pietro's arrival pushed us to implement plan B. To look for a place to take care of ourselves. A wild oasis where we can learn together the harmony of everything that moves. Living, not simply telling, an alternative to the hasty and distracted city life. Last year we found this 7-hectare treasure chest. A valley with woods, pastures, springs, a stream, an olive grove and many walnuts. An hour away by bus from Rome a healthy and resilient environment in which, in a short time, we met dormice, squirrels, Martins, Porcupines, Foxes, Boars, Hedgehogs, Toads, Frogs, Tritons, Salamanders, Snakes, many birds and insects of every colour and shape. Our family has 6 donkeys and a kitten named Poep. My name is Francesco, I'm a father, environmental engineer and a novice grower. Barbara, my partner, works mainly in Rome and occasionally works on the internet from here too. Our idea is as clear as ambitious: to achieve food and energy self-sufficiency, making it in balance with the natural flows that surround us. The principles of permaculture and synergistic agriculture are the basis of our selection criteria. We have many small projects under way, such as: a hydroelectric turbine, a bio-pool, a food-for-life, a glamping area, a vegetable garden, an olive grove, and many others we hope to create with you. We can accommodate you in a a private bedroom, or alternatively, an independent attic. I am vegan and Barbara is a vegetarian, but we are respectful of everyone's choices. What binds all our activities is a different definition of time. Nothing here is carried out hastily, everything happens in a calm, present and mindfull manner. Pole pole, in Swahili, means "slowly". The idea is thus to promote awareness and enjoyment of every single breath.
Our small farm extends for almost one hectare in the fertile territory of Zagarolo on the Roman castles of Prenestini, about 30 km from central Rome, and is a choice of life for me and my family. We started in 2008, buying a small piece of land, and we planted carefully choosing the crops suitable for the territory: the olive grove, the vineyard, the orchard, small fruit and an oasis of aromatic herbs for the production of natural remedies. We carefully choose, according to the season, the vegetables of the garden to be sown, planting certified organic plants and plants from self produced or exchanged seeds, in the logic of biodiversity conservation, and we continue self-sufficiency for 30% of food consumption of our family, producing eggs (hens and ducks but not for meat, here they die from old age), seasonal vegetables, potatoes, fruit, oil, wine and small fruit, honey and beehive products, selling the surplus of excellent quality. To help the return of the butterflies and pollinating insects we have planted a cultivation of officinal lavender on which in summer our bees work tirelessly to produce an excellent honey! We make bread, pasta and preserves for self-consumption, and when we have time also oleolites and soaps. We are available to explain how the products of the earth are stored, so that other people can do the same, and learn from the exchange of knowledge with the people who share our experience. We share our home with guests, providing a room with a bathroom. Donating to my daughter and young people, the values ​​in which I believe, first of all the simplicity of life and the intensity that the earth offers us with its perfumes and its fruits, unconditionally giving us everything we need to live, is my commitment everyday!

We are a young couple with two children of 7 and 5 and we moved to the countryside to live in peace and in harmony with nature. We have agricultural land, 1.5 km from the village centre, located in the valley that gave its name to the farm. The farm was not born for profit, but to guarantee energy and food self-sufficiency, to respect the land and natural resources, to learn about farming and to network with other similar realities. All in the perspective of inner enrichment and well-being, trying the way of "happy degrowth” and looking towards a future in harmony with oneself and with nature. This path is still at its initial stage and will require more years of commitment and sharing to realize it. In this sense, we have thought that new opinions, lifestyles, cultures, and views can contribute to this purpose and facilitate it. We offer an exchange opportunity to make the place and ourselves a little better than what we have been and which we are today. We have several pets, farmyard animals and three beautiful donkeys, we work for their well-being and general maintenance of the area. We carry out projects in permaculture and natural agriculture, for the land and crops we use minimally small machines and no chemical products, we integrate animals with the productive areas and we are constantly evolving our vegetable garden. We want to share our spaces with those who want to experience, who want to have fun and who want to learn from nature. We offer, depending on the period and duration of stay, a room in the main house or an independent apartment. In general, we prefer to accommodate non italians, perhaps who speak English, who do not mind also sharing a few moments to play with our children.
Organic Food forest near Rome! Ciao! I am Stefano and I am 37 years old and I was born in Rome, I lived 4 years in Berlin and since 2013 I have taken care of 7 hectares of land, including an olive grove, a cultivation of aromatic plants and a lot of woodland, in Carpineto Romano, a town one hour south of Rome and 45 minutes from Sabaudia. I have traveled a bit and visited various ecovillages and farms in Europe and would like to gradually replicate these experiences with the help of a group of people. On the land which was abandoned for 20 years I am selecting the edible and usable essences creating a strip of food forest between the olive grove and the forest. There are blackthorns, cornelians, hawthorn, dog rose, wild cherries, plums, walnuts, chestnuts, pear trees and apple trees and many aromatic herbs including thyme, mint and marrubio; all spontaneous and natural. All this needs to be made accessible to anyone interested in building a harmonious relationship with nature and living there by living this relationship. I have a house in the village twenty minutes walk from the land but I would like to create the conditions to live in the woods at least in the summer, starting to collect rainwater and create a way to sleep there. During the week I go to Rome where I participate in the activities of the Forte Prenestino social centre and I would be happy to involve the wwoofers. I speak Italian, German, English, Spanish and I understand French! I'm waiting for you!

We are two women, Diana and Federica of 39, and after having meditated for a long time we have decided to change our way of life, moving from Rome centre to a beautiful rural area north of Rome, in the Marcigliana Natural Reserve. In the countryside we are building our association, which deals with psycho-physical well-being through the integration of different disciplines. We propose stimulating activities that aim to make us be good with ourselves, with others and with the surrounding environment. For about a year now we are working to create a place that will be the centre of many initiatives, the project involves many steps and we are still at the beginning! Among the things to do, we would like to realize a synergic garden, set up a naturalistic path, a space for carpentry and recycling materials. There are also the many daily jobs in the country, such as sorting firewood, hedge and garden maintenance, restoration of old furniture, animal care (we currently have dogs and cats but we will soon be chickens, hens and rabbits) etc. To welcome you you will find the ground floor of the house dedicated entirely to guests, with 3 rooms, kitchen and bathroom (shared), we live on the first floor.

Our desire is to create an open space for sharing and friendship, a place to come to learn and help, everyone is welcome, with or without experience.

I live in the Lucretili Mountains 800 m above sea level, and have approx 4.5 hectares of forest and meadow. With an eye to the principles of permaculture and an ear to what the local old people say, without dogmatism, I'm slowly creating a garden for our own consumption and grow herbs typical to this mountainous area. For some years I have harvested and transformed wild medicinal plants, organized courses on herbs and educational walks. I moved here in 2014, and there is a lot to do, I'd like to have chickens and bees, continue to plant fruit trees and create a forest garden, renovate the stone barn and contribute to the natural beauty of this place. Therefore the possible activities are many and varied, some more strenuous others more contemplative. Inside the house I can accommodate up to two people at a time, while in the summer there is ample space for tents and campers. We cook and eat together, cooking and heating are with wood, I do not have television but do have internet, I speak German and a little English.
