This 25 hectare farm has started a permaculture project which we hope will reproduce as much as possible the biodiversity and richness of the natural ecosystem in our cultivation and human activities. We are concentrating on the hedgerows, perennial cultivation, interaction between animals and plants etc. There is a mixed 6 hectare forest, free range chickens, bees, donkeys, pigs and sheep, vegetable garden (mulched with straw) and many other projects. Help needed with all the many and varied jobs on the farm depending on the season but mainly in the vegetable garden, orchard, maintaining hedges & woodland, with the animals maintenance of buildings using green building techniques etc. Accommodation in shared room, French, English, Russian, Rumanian, Moldavian, Jula and Spanish spoken.
After several different work experiences I came closer to meditation and then permaculture. Becoming a mother led me to the desire for a different way of life and in 2013 I left my job in a multinational to start growing strawberries and soft fruit near Lake Garda. I sell fresh fruit and jams. I have about about one hectare of productive land. Following the maturation of the fruit most of the work is concentrated between June and September. This activity also gave me the opportunity to start collaborating by offering internships to ‘fragile’ student. Being with these people has made me realize how important my work is for them, in a risk-free environment, in contact with nature, and how gratifying it can be for me to follow these projects, teaching, harvesting the fruit, and being in the here and now. The objective I have is to promote an experience of real working life. By working together on my little farm I can actually provide more tools through true feelings, meditation, listening. The activities we ask you to share with the guests are harvesting the fruit and caring for the plants, the work is all done manually. To learn more and to get the best from your stay I ask for stays of at least 2 weeks. The farm is 5 km from the lake and you can bicycle or go by bus for a swim. You can also make beautiful excursions in the nearby mountains exploring ancient villages. So a true sport /agronomist experience!!! I look forward to meeting you.
We are a young couple who live and work on a farm in the green Valsabbia. Mainly we breed chamois goats and produce cheese; we also have a few cows, pigs, rabbits and chickens, a cat and a playful sheepdog. There is a vegetable garden and several fruit trees. In the summer we make the hay to feed our animals, but throughout the year there is never a lack of things to do! We are in Casto, near the Parco delle Fucine and various mountain shelters and walks. We gladly welcome those who want to gain experience with animals, working the garden, make hay and to understand what it means to have a farm and share with us our simple and natural way of life. We recommend a minimum of 2 weeks. We are not vegetarians but consume little meat (mostly ours), we respect all different food choices and for every need there is a supermarket 2 minutes' walk away. We are 5 minutes drive from the town centre, one hour from Brescia. We speak Spanish and are happy to try with English.
We are two young siblings, Luca and Bea, and we run this farm of about 10 hectares. It is are located next to the famous Bosco della Fontana, which is within walking distance and inside the nature reserve of the Parco del Mincio. A smile never fails! The farm is based on different concepts such as simplicity, eco design, art, colour therapy, recycling of material and making things by hand. We cultivate soft fruits, fodder crops and vegetables. We also have a chicken coop for egg production for our own consumption, and a horse called Malibu. We also have several beehives belonging to a local beekeeper. We harvest soft fruit throughout the summer which we make into jams for the agritourism. The vegetables are for our own consumption. We can accommodate all year round in a double room in the main house, with a bathroom which is shared with the rest of the family. We eat little meat but we are not vegetarians. WWOOFers can help with a bit of everything, as there are many different jobs to be done in the country; from dealing with guests to helping in the fields and on the farm, contributing to the daily life of the house, preparing meals and cleaning. We also have an art studio as Luca also an artist. From the farm it is easy to reach both the village of Marmirolo (2km) and the city of Mantua, using the cycle track Mantova - Peschiera del Garda. We have bikes available. We speak English, Spanish and a little French. The farm is located only 5 km from the city of Mantua, easy to reach both by bike or by bus from the train station.
We are a very young farm, started thanks to Paola and Matteo, a couple with children, and managed with the invaluable help of Massi, Dario, Jessica and many other beautiful people interested in our project ... We are planning and implementing, step by step, an example of integrated and sustainable agroecosystem .... By helping us you can become part of this small but great project in progress ... We try to produce high quality food, which nourishes us thanks to its richness and completeness of substances and vitality. We also aim to set up a sustainable system from an economic, human and social point of view. At the moment we produce: vegetables, a mixed orchard with ancient varieties (Pears, apples, peaches, apricots, plums and table grapes), soft fruit (currants, raspberries and blackberries), olive trees for the production of extra virgin olive oil. There is so much to learn, thanks to the wide and deep experience of Matteo, who for years with TERRA ORGANICA forms and advises agricultural farms that decide to go "beyond the biological" and try to be "regenerative" .. And thanks to the passion of Paola, who believes in dreams and in the possibility of making them real, to Dario, Massi and Jessy, you can enjoy a working environment that is not only welcoming and familiar but also fun, young and dynamic. We need enthusiasm, willingness to compare, work and learn ... (after a few days try out we request stays of at least 20 days). We offer food, accommodation in a magnificent place overlooking the lake, a few steps from the shore, from the train station and surrounded by fabulous mountains ... In a undiscovered territory ...

Started in 2010, this is continually evolving permaculture project. Located in rural Desenzano del Garda it enjoys both the green of the park of the Moraine hills and the close proximity of the city centre. Although the farm is small, 2 hectares, we have with many activities such as beekeeping, organic agriculture, construction with wood, a nursery with olive trees and we take care of different animals. Also we are dedicated to the study and experimentation of various agricultural techniques and organize teaching activities. Help needed from WWOOFers is for all of these activities, it is varied and proportionate to the abilities and possibilities of each person. Meals are generally prepared and eaten together, the meals are mainly vegetarian and we use mainly organic food. We would like a culinary exchange to expand our new cookbook with delicious dishes. We provide 2 beds in the common room in the house and in the summer there is the possibility of camping with compost toilets and outdoor showers. We speak English, Spanish and Catalan well.

We are a Francesco "Ciccio" and Michela with our son Ernesto live on this farm in the heart of the Po Valley, a WWF oasis in the ‘Parco regionale Oglio’ on the flood plains of the Oligio river. Together with Davide we have been working this farm for 15 years when it was a traditional farm planted entirely with poplar. Since then we have turned the poplar plantations into mixed woodland, planted a small orchard with heirloom varieties (2010-2011) and made a vegetable garden for the use of the family and agritourism. The farm is certified organic since 2014. We raise chickens, geese, ducks and rabbits and we have 2 donkeys and 1 horse which we use for activities with children. Since 2009 we have produced honey. As we renovated the farm in 2005 we can now accommodate groups, schools, scouts, etc. and we are an educational farm and the WWF environmental education centre, and we manage the nature reserve. Jobs, depending on the season and needs of the farm may be: planting and pruning in the orchard, in the vegetable garden, with hospitality and education, pruning in the woods, harvesting and preserving produce from the vegetable garden, with the honey. Accommodation is in one (or more) rooms adjacent to our house.
