(projects i'm following)
Since 2013 i have been putting my hands into the soil. To learn from the richness of it, to be able to get the best out of it and take responsibility for what mine and my family's diet consists of.
I am experienced in building and furnituremaking. I have rebuild my 300 year old house, using natural and recycled materials.
Since I was a child I have experienced that the way our society works doesn't make a lot of sense. But I never could put a finger on it. I have been involved in protecting nature in my teenage years and when i worked as a divinginstructor. But nothing made more sense and gave me more hope than the message of Permaculture. I don't own much land, but i have some 350 m2 now where i can grow my vegetables and where I want to build the garden based on PC principles.
Momentarily I follow courses to enrich my knowledge. Courses in plantguilds, soil and a lot of studying about plants.
