We need 1 volunteer
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.
You will have a private room and privat bathroom
