About the workproject

We need 10 volunteers

I walk the land for my self and for my family. We have three of fruits, animale, vagetble and a garden. I have 33 years old.
Welcome to the low Irpinia halfway between Avellino and Salerno, near the park of the Picentini mountains. The village is called Montoro. We can accommodate in an apartment with a room and private bathroom, no more than two people at a time (heated in winter and cool in summer). No smoking in the house. The rather large house has a front garden and a family vegetable garden in the rear, other land that I manage and cultivate is located several hundred metres away from the house. There are numerous fruit trees, in particular hazels, cherries and citrus fruits; a dozen hens that we use only for eggs and ducks that help keep the grass cut. Most of the cultivated products are destined for self-consumption but during periods of abundant harvest we sell in local markets which sell produce at KM 0. Length of stay: from one to three weeks. Communal meals consist of mainly local food (we are not vegetarian but welcome vegetarians). Languages ​​spoken: English in a discreet way (but I'm getting better). In your free time I can accompany you on excursions in mountains that I know well, or alternatively a few kilometres away you can visit the city of Salerno, the excavations of Pompeii, the famous sanctuary of Monte vergine, even Naples is easily accessible by public transport. I have always enjoyed traveling, visiting and getting to know places and therefore I would be able to advise you well but my greatest pleasure would be to accompany you personally in discovering the local beauties; obviously this possibility is limited to the free time I have available. My name is Francesco and I usually take care of the cultivation and harvesting of vegetables and everything else, but I work actively with local farms in order to also exchange produce.

Produciamo frutta, verdura e carne destinate soprattutto all'autoconsumo, vivo tra Avellino e salerno vicino a belle località turistiche che nel tempo libero potete visitare e anche Napoli è vicina circa 45 minuti di bus. Nel passato sono stato impegnato in opere di carità cristiana.
