About Lorenzo Costa

I live in the countryside near Siena from 15 years. I've studied in university contemporary history and work in university in Siena. I have always liked to walk in nature, grow my food and have animals.
I started reading about permaculture when I decided to buy some land and for a few months have been reading and walking on my maybe land, observing plants, animals, water retention.
My project is to build an organic farm on 5.6 hectares of woodland and hill landscape. grow food that I can sell, but also teach how we can live in a different way with agriculture. I want to demonstrate that chianti is not only wine and vineyards, but can also be rich earth and food growing land. I live in Chianti which is a beautiful place but a monoculture only grapes for wine or olive trees. it is going to be a long project, i'll need money and help for design especially for the harvesting of water
