Marche

Summer List
We live in an old farmhouse in a grove between Monte San Vicino and the lake of Cingoli. We are a couple, more or less young, who moved to le Marche in October 2015. We have a certified organic farm with bees, oil and vineyard, a B & B, and we grow fruit, vegetables and poultry for our own use. As a growing farm, we always need a hand. We have tasks for WWOOFers depending on your expertise and interests. Besides the various agricultural jobs, there is a chance to help with harvesting of wild foods, processing and fermentation of fruit, vegetables, honey and so on, with maintenance and beautification of the house and around, small buildings for chickens etc., art projects and markets. Accommodation in the house, we ask for a hand with meals and cleaning. We eat little meat, mostly from our own production or bartered with friends. There are two cats in the house, you can smoke outside, and dogs must be well trained (we keep chickens free range). Mainly we speak Italian and English and a bit 'of Spanish. We would love to learn French.

The farm is a laboratory of experiences that, through continuous research and experimentation, moves towards the sustainable development of new socio-economic models. Actively engaged in environmental regeneration, in restoring fertility and soil balance and in the production of densely nutritious foods, therefore with a high content of nutrients easily assimilated by the body, we propose an approach based on the observation of nature and the respect of its cycles. We practice organic and regenerative agriculture with particular attention to water management through techniques such as the keyline. We produce soil improvers, biochar, bocashi, macerates, biofertilizers, etc. We have a half-hectare food forest, with shrubs and support trees of all kinds. 5/6 hectares of cereals (ancient grains and evolutionary populations), half a hectare of officinal herbs, a garden of 1500 m and we harvest wild herbs. We offer courses, events and trainings mainly related to self-production, spontaneous, medicinal, herbal medicine, regenerative agriculture. We have 3 dogs and 7 cats, chickens and 2 sheep and from this year 4 beehives. We are part of the regional permaculture network, of the house of herbs circuit and we collaborate with the genuine underground network. We are a young reality and we are learning day by day, with the experience of working with nature, with animals, between people. We share our experience rather than teach. We ask for collaboration in agricultural work, in the daily management of the house and in the organization of courses. The indispensable things you have to bring with you are good humor, good will, spirit of adaptation!

We are Daniela and Giorgia, companions in life and work. We have a farm in the Sassocorvaro countryside, a small town of 5000 inhabitants 25km from Urbino. We live in a large family home, Giorgias family consisting of the father, mother and grandmother. The house is on three floors, with another independent house in the garden. On our farm we grow vegetables on raised beds which are then destined for direct sales with home deliveries. We cultivate organically and try to enrich our land with little processing and green manure. We raise hens but in our family we include 2 dogs that live with us in the house and 1 cat. We would like to host people to exchange ideas, to plan together, to learn and above all to share. Daniela and I are vegetarian but we are the only vegetarians in the household so we also cook meat. We prefer to share lunch and, not necessarily, dinner and breakfast. We live near beautiful places that we can visit together and 40 minutes from the sea which can be a welcome place for relaxing weekends.

Our farm is located in Polverigi, a small town in the Marche hills 20 KM from the Conero Riviera and with a beautiful view of the Apennines. My name is Gabriele and I live here with my partner Rozi, we are starting to revive this land about 3 years ago, leading a simple life following the rhythms of nature. We mainly grow vegetables without the use of chemicals, selecting our seeds year after year and trying to conserve varieties that are being lost over time. The other daily activities are the chicken coop, the bees, the olive grove periodically and small maintenance work on the house. Our diet is vegetarian, we eat what our land offers us season by season, we can host in a room with multiple beds up to a maximum of 2 people for at least one or two weeks. We speak English and Spanish quite well. In this country life there is a need for sharing, cultural exchange and ideas to be able to improve and always learn something new, (also from you !!) this was the reason that led us to join this association and to share with you the beauty of a rural life!
This is a new biodynamic 5 ha farm in the hills a few kms from Cingoli. The project is based on the principles of permaculture. We have a secular olive grove, worms for compost and keep bees following the principles of Warrè. We are a family of 2 people, 1 dog and 1 horse which grazes freely under our olive trees. We have a small kitchen garden, collect blackberries for blackberry jam, make candles with beeswax and we have many other projects on the go. We have a yurt where we live in the summer months. We can offer accommodation in a tent (from spring to autumn) length of stay by prior agreement. There is a compost toilet and an outdoor kitchen but we do not have electricity or internet. Our farm is a quiet place where we spend time working on many projects and take care of nature. We are 1 km from a small village where you will find the basic necessities and public transport. Nearby there are large forests and many beautiful trails for hiking and mountain bikes. Everyone is welcome as long you love the nature and living in close contact with others. Currently we do not live full time on the farm and both work part time outside, so a degree of independence is important. We speak Italian and English.

I live in the country by choice and practice natural farming. I grow about 11 has of old varieties of grains and are experimenting by tilling the soil as little as possible. I transform our wheat into high quality flour that we sell at local markets and to buyers groups. I have a traditional vegetable garden, one run on the principles of "Fukuoka" and a synergistic one. I am inspired by the concepts of Permaculture. I experiment, harvest herbs, flowers, wild and cultivated fruits to eat fresh or preserve. I make bread and cakes for our own consumption and for local markets. I have a subsistence economy, and I am inspired by the ideals of complete self-sufficiency. I have a lot of hens, six sheep (currently only for meat … we are waiting for the right moment to  start making cheese) and eight cats. I would like to accommodate motivated people who want to experience life in the countryside. I welcome longer stays. I use wood for heating and cooking. I live on a beautiful hill surrounded by old oak trees and have a large olive grove, woods and fields. I love art, music and developing communication. I am part of the group of 'Seminasogni'. Besides Italian I also speak English.

The farm is located in Montecosaro, in the heart of the Marche countryside, a few minutes from the sea, in a very sunny location away from populated areas and immersed in an oasis of 4 hectares of greenery and populated by many animals: peacocks, mallards, hens, parrots, geese, turtles, a cat ... The house which was built at the end of the nineteenth century with local brick and stone is inhabited by Michela, the owner and her sons Mirea (6 years) and Manuel (5 years), their grandmother and uncle and is surrounded by a vast rich garden of ornamental botanical species and a valuable collection of succulents. Giuseppe works on the farm as an agricultural entrepreneur and he is responsible for the maintenance of the farm that mainly produces preparations of Aloe arborescens. The estate is divided into 5000 meters of vineyard, 130 olive trees, a large vegetable garden for domestic use, a small wood of about 3000 meters, 2 greenhouses of about 4600 plants for the production of Aloe arborescens leaves, a greenhouse for the cultivation of succulent plants and an apiary. The WWOOFers that will be hosted will participate in all the activities of the farm, harvesting the leaves to make the preparations, maintenance of the greenhouses, the garden and the vegetable garden. You can take walks in nature, go to the beach, the mountains and visit the surrounding historical centres. Guests will enjoy a double bedroom with private bathroom and independent access to the upper floor. The kitchen and the living room are spaces in common with the family. On request you can have the WI-Fi connection. There is also the possibility of camping in the surrounding garden with your own tent. We eat everything preferring seasonal fruit and vegetables and we respect food choices (vegetarian and vegan).

I practice agriculture for my own consumption, not for commercial reasons. I grow the major part of my food and also I harvest a lot of wild produce; herbs, flowers and fruit which I eat fresh or dry to conserve. The small pieces of land which I care for are between the hills and mountains and surrounded by woodland. I try to be as self sufficient as possible. The jobs are varied throughout the year in the vegetable garden, woods and with other tasks. I love conviviality, communication, music, and reading aloud. I publish a newspaper "il Seminasogni" about alternative realities to communicate with the outside world. I write poetry. I know many wild plants, edible and medicinal. Cultivating ones own food for me is not work but a joyous occupation. A slow, stress free lifestyle. Accommodation in room, meals vegetarian. English spoken. Due to the earthquake accommodation only possible if you bring a tent or camper van.

My 3 hectare farm is situate near the town of Ancona, from the garden there are beautiful views of Ancona, the sea and Mount Conero. I have olive trees, aromatic plants (lavender, rosemary, thyme, calendula), saffron and a vegetable garden. We use only organic methods and weed by hand to avoid the use of chemicals of any kind, and we are experimenting with natural growing methods to save energy. WWOOFers can help with the preparation of the land and cultivating using the most natural methods possible. I have a degree in biology and on the farm I'm applying the principles to recycling household waste to produce compost. I speak French and German and I understand a little English, but do not speak it well, I am studying Chinese.

We are a family and live in a farmhouse in the countryside and, along with other families, cultivate about 2 has of shared land. Following the principles of permaculture we grow for ourselves and exchange any excess produce. We grow vegetables in raised beds and in the fields, have a small vineyard of table grapes and a young mixed fruit orchard, cultivate both soft and hard wheat, from which we are self-sufficient in bread and pasta. We have olive oil from 24 olive trees. We take care of a seedbed and 100 aloe vera plants. We have chickens for eggs and meat; and a horse, 3 dogs, a cat and a tortoise. The fertilizer comes only from our animals, compost and our natural preparations. We control pests, diseases and weeds without using chemicals. We take care of a small woodland, we obtain hot water and heating from solar panels and a furnace. We would love to accommodate 1 or 2 people for periods - a minimum of 2 weeks - throughout the year, at times to be agreed, to participate in our activities with the idea of pooling our skills and talents, exchange / learn / dream / plan together. We prefer to share lunch but not necessarily dinner and breakfast. We are 3 /4 kms from the bus and train lines and 10 from the motorway. We speak English, French and Portuguese.
