The Experience

Hello, my name is Ambrogio and I've been working with nature for all of my life. I have a big farm in Sicily of cereal agriculture. I would like to host positive and happy people who loves nature. I’m looking for someone who can help me with the cultivation of my land in the full respect of biodiversity. I’m also looking for someone who can help with maintenance and renovation :)

It was a wonderful chance to enjoy nature and learn about Sicilian traditions and cuisine. Rosetta and Ambroggio are wonderful people, they welcome you as a part of the family and go the extra mile when it comes to helping you with anything you may need. I already miss Nina, Dick, Marieta and Gemma. They fill your days with joy 😊

This was my third and last experience in a two-month journey across Italy and I could not be happier. It was the perfect end to a beautiful and intense period of volunteering in eco-projects. I learned, shared, and enjoy fully with Ambro e Rosa in a calm place in the middle of the mountains, of Sicily, -and of the world!. During three weeks I was part of the house in a very cozy, confident, and joyful atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful animals and eating the greatest simple and delicious food. Vario family is now my extended family in Sicily! Thank you for your love and generosity. Baccio!

Uau! This is the most important experience of my life. We're 6 people from different countries and we have a lovely and hard social living. At first we had some problems with the host, but we can solve everything talking about. I worked all days except one cause I ask to do a day off and it was not a problem. I really made friends and learned to much about agriculture. The food is so special! You will see! Thank you Ambrogio and Rosetta, I'm so grateful.

Fontana Murata fue mi primer experiencia como voluntaria. Llegué con miedos e inquietudes que se fueron disolviendo con el paso de los días. Sembré tomates, alimenté animales, observé durante horas a las ovejas y algunas actividades. La conexión con la tierra me lleno de paz. Comí bien a lo italiano es decir mucha pasta, aceitunas, quesos increíbles y pan (sin falta). Recomiendo estar unas semanas en este lugar con un paisaje precioso junto con Ambrogio y Rosetta, dos hermosas personas con las que tuve charlas muy bonitas :)

Fontana Murata è stata una esperienza indimenticabile. Ambrogio e la sua famiglia sono brave persone!! Ho conosciuto gente che non dimenticherò mai, gente del territorio e altri volontari. Sono molto contenta per tutto quello che ho imparato e fatto.
Fontana è un posto dove si ferma el tempo e le persone (anche gli animali) valgono per quello che sono <3
