About Piero Gigante

I started cultivating and experimenting with ecological methods 25 years ago. Worked on housing and domestic heating systems, green-roofs, compost toilets, rainwater harvesting ecc. Have used various lunar calenders for farming and created a synergic collective farm for urban residents in 2007, teaching them passive ways of maintaining harmony between nature, animals and humans
Worked with different people from communities such as Auroville International township and other eco-communities in Italy and around where permaculture is being practiced. Visited the Italian Academy members to integrate in 2012.
Consulting design & alternative energy management in local projects around Europe.
Currently creating a seed saving unit for the Karst region near Trieste and Facilitating with SPC school.
