WWOOFing in Sicily at Borgo Tudia
Once upon a time I went WWOOFing in Sicily. This birds eye view is of a little cluster of rustic Sicilian cottages and farm buildings, in the dead centre of Sicily near Resuttano. It is the privately owned Borgo Tudia, a 200 hectare estate that is home to one of my WWOOF hosts in Sicily at the start of last year.
They grow olives which they sell as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and sell Nero D’Avola red wine from grapes grown on the estate. They also run an Agri-tourism business, and a yoga retreat in the warmer months. Spending a brisk month here in the winter sun, I did lots of work outdoors and in the kitchens – so I can vouch highly for the quality of their wines and olive oil. What do you think they ‘paid’ me with?
I could write a lot more about my WWOOFing in Sicily here, but it’s all coming to the blog shortly, as well as why I’m in India with very little internet right now.
