About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

My name is Alberto and some years ago I decided for a “slower” life moving from the big and chaotic city of Rome to the countryside nearby.

Together with my parents we bought and renovated this farmhouse . The house is surrounded by a olive grove with some native plants.That’s how the farm was born. It is currently producing olive oil and honey and starting experiments with fermentations.

Our production is quality and sustainability oriented and by now it is just more than enough for our family consumption.

The goal is a progressive growth that is not aimed at poduction only but that includes all aspects of life and that is in line with a new spirit of research and the respect of natural resources.

I'm farmer and host from 2014 since I moved from Rome where I was analyst and programmer in an IT company. I like cooking, hiking and do new experiences out of my confort zone. I practice meditation, yoga but not everyday. I like music expecially irish and other traditional and I play guitar as principiant (self studied). I like to meet new people, having amazing conversation, work togheter and live all the small things with strong meaning, that's colors my life and make me curious about everything
