  • Description

    Description

    Welcome,my name is Enrico and I live on a farm based on a permaculture vision. I live in a traditional yurt, but am also building a wooden house. My forest garden is rich in diversity with plants and trees from all around the world.

    The land is located in such a beautiful area surrounded by the nature reserve 'La Timpa' with views of the volcanic coastline and Etna the volcano. I have a dog, a cat, tortoises and busy bees, also on the land there are wild bees that have moved in.

    I am a percussionist also.
