The Experience

Hello, travelers! My name is Fabrizio and for three years I've been working with plants, by creating natural products for the body and for the inside of the body like some healing preparation! I like to have a healthy life, such as eating organic food from the season and doing yoga. I usually sell my products in the market in the city center in Palermo and also online and I'm looking for volunteers to help me with that and enjoy this paradise!

My experience with Fabrizio was very good. Fabrizio is a very chilled and kind. He lives in a beautiful and comfortable house in Mondello. He introduced me to all his wonderful friends. I had a great time !

This was my first work exchange experience and it was really wonderful!
Fabri is a great host with a beautiful home and a sweet dog. He is very welcoming and will invite you to hang out with him and his friends. Either he will cook for you or you can ask him to get groceries and cook for yourself.
Fabri is flexible when it comes to hours worked, he just expects you to respect the exchange and work about 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week. I was managing his social media and helping to run his Etsy business, but as there currently is not consistent WiFi I also helped around the house and garden.

Fabrizio picked me up from the bus station, I had my own room and my own keys, could use the bike or the skates to move around. The house is small and basic but cute. He has a beautiful dog too. San Vito is a amazing place! To learn how to make the natural products was super interesting. He took me with his friends so I met a lot of nice people. Although I felt like we had some personal differences and didn't get along well 100%. At the market I felt a bit useless sometimes sitting around there for 5 or 6hs (s.t. after working in the day already) maybe more fixed working hours would be nice.

The work is pretty nice.
I didn’t make products every single day, the days I made I learned a lot, and the products are amazing quality!
The house is great, we feel like home.
Fabrizio is very nice, quite guy. He is a great chef, awesome food, but he doesn’t eat a lot, and me too. But if you really enjoy eating, MAYBE you can fit not very good there. Unless you feel very comfortable to cook your meal everyday in the house, or have a meal in a restaurant.
And San Vito is gorgeous! I recommend!
