we are a young couple of scientists who moved to the countryside to live in a more sustainable way and to realize our dreams.

We offer beautiful apartments in an historical tower in . We want to avoid platforms like Booking.com, Airbnb or Google for advertising.

We have also a big vegetable garden at guests' disposal where we experiment .

As the fall begins, the morning view is spectacular, with fog in the Arno valley (Valdarno), crisp air, and a blue sky.

This is one of the best times to be here... treat yourself to a vacation!

Dilemma: we wanted to avoid monopolistic platforms like , or , but since two weeks we are empty.
We even offered 30% discount to Mastodon users. Sill, every day like this is another day at loss, despite this is one of the nicest seasons to be here.

We are tempted to advertise our smallest room on Airbnb.
Would you find this choice ethically acceptable?

#SeedSaving is not just food saving ... it is in the very heart of the centuries-old tradition and art of plant cultivation.

Next Tuesday, September 7 at 18:00 CEST (UTC+2), we put the culture back into agriculture with our first #OpenSource #Seed saving #workshop 2021 offered by Aimee Fenech. The workshop will be in English and online in a Big Blue Button (BBB) room, more information here: opensourcegardens.info/news/ne

The session is interactive, bring your questions and let us all learn together.

(If a category has several pages of follows, click "show older" at the bottom to see the next page.)

This is just a tiny fraction of accounts on here, but hopefully it will give people's timelines a good start.

Please do share this with anyone you think might benefit, for example people new to the Fediverse.

We offer 30% discount to whoever books an apartment and arrives here in Tuscany by September 2021: Starting from tomorrow we have no longer guests for one week.

30% is the commission that Booking.com (which we refuse to use) would take, and we prefer to give that to people on the Fediverse instead.

Finally the first rain of August! The plants were thirsty and the underground water level was low.

After few hours the sun is back already.

As soon as the rain is over, Cassio the kitten prepares a new attack to Enzo who escapes despite weighing over twenty times more... 😂

Getting ready to cook the "pomarola" (the Italian tomato preserve) for the winter. Those tomatoes smell delicious!

In this area if you rent a vacation apartment on Booking.com, takes about 30% commission!!

We were looking for more alternatives, and found catjump.de .

Furthermore, uses which is great!

Have you heard of CatJump.de before?

...and this is Cassio, our two-month-old cat, who loves to play non-stop and to ambush our big dog.

This is Enzo, our 51kg dog who should keep our home safe. In reality he is afraid even of cats...

But he loves giving the paw and getting rubbed on the belly!
