About Leon Elt

- Had some farming experience as a child but never appreciated it. Still reasonably good with a shovel or a hoe as a result though.

- Ended up on a piece of land and started a sheep farm there (by accident) at the ripe age of 36.

- Until recently have never realized most people don't understand animals.

- To me permaculture just makes sense, like laying down when you want to sleep. When I came across my first Bill Mollison's book (around 2008) it felt like something I always knew but forgot.

- The current project is Big Small Farm - a Farm Incubator in Bushnell, FL. Connecting new farmers with the land in a way that makes both sides happy! http://bigsmallfarm.org/


Consults on the pause for now, sorry.

No more animal integration consults unless you're very local (Tampa Bay) or doing some crazy interesting s*it. Sorry! We just have a lot of stuff going on on both AL and BSF!
