(projects i'm following)
I'm from 1988 and i always lived in a small country under tha alps,near the Maggiore Lake. I had the luck to grow in contact with nature and people who passed me the passion for plants and a "non-city" way of living.
After school i earned a degree in the Univesity of Milan in Herbal Studies.
It was only in 2012 that i started to learn something about permaculture, thanks to my friend Tobias, who alone started to apply some principles in his garden.
I began to read some books and to help him, me and my girlfriend Berengere started a new organic veg-garden, but was only in june 2013 that i really understood what Peramculture is.
Berengere, my mother Paola, her friend Betta and I partecipated at the PDC course taught by Pietro Zucchetti in a small beautiful village in Italy named Scagnello.
This was one of the best experience i'v ever had; it was great to see that there are other people having the same ideals and love for our earth. This evolved in 10 days of cooperation, sharing and learning that i never experienced during 4 years of university!
(After the course we were thrown back in the reality...skpetical people and "ecoenemy" habits that are very difficult to remove came back to us!).
In our small we tried to improove biodiversity and fertility in our garden and veg-garden, flower seeds and mulching have been our best weapon.
In september Paola and Betta had the luck to rent a 1500m2 plot and started their first project of a forest garden!!
Me and Bé after a year of work and money saving decided to leave Italy and fly to New Zealand for one year, in search of works and projects in the Permaculture field... we will arrive in Auckland the 22nd of january 2014, if anybody need help, knows
peolpe or places or has any suggestions please contact us!
