unterwegs auf Reisen
My name is Francesco and I have a dream!
I was born and grew up in Portugal, as a half Italian. Early on I loved the ocean, the woods and the mountains.
Now, some years later after having had the opportunity and privilege to travel and search for what I truly want to do, I've found it. That's why for the past 2 years I've an organic but especially regenerative agriculture student and apprentice.
I've been combining 2 years of living and working on 2 farms, and thus learning the ins and outs of vegetable and herb production. As well as a few months experience with milking cows and goats, both with machines and by hand.
I've grown cereals, pastures and walked the mountains to harvest the wild great gifts.
In the (near) future I will start producing vegetables and herbs, yet, there is so much to learn, always! So I take the chances I have to go places and learn from people.
This winter of 2020/2021 I am in Italy, until March 2021 when I will start my last year of education at a no dig market garden in Sweden.
In these transition times I always look for places where I can stay for a while and share knowledge, both ways, in and out!
2 years of farming education, with main focus in vegetables and herbs.
Animal care, handling and production if that's the case. Also with horses through natural horsemanship.
Forests are the best teachers in my eyes, so I love to walk long distances and explore what they have to teach.
Plants are a big passion of mine: Families, medicinals, edibles...
I love food in general and cooking it!
I have some experience with construction work but more importantly I want to do a lot more of it.
Flexible and innovative.
