  • Description


    Hi there! My passion for natural life stile, sustenablity, healthy food & nutrition, drive me to start in 2016 a permaculture project in Tuscany, more exactely in the Chianti side, in the hills close to Florence (15 km)
    The basic idea of the project is develop a food forest + natural horticolture, self sufficient and sustainable life.
    The land are 12.000 sq,m, with organic certification from many years.

    That place is a great opportunity for us and for anyone will be part of that growing process; growing as tecnical experience and human one in the same time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am sure that this agro-ecological project can be a truly useful and stimulating experience for all people who love to grow, improve their skills and learn new ones. A permanent and authentic confrontation with nature, with a simple and sustainable life, with oneself.

    People here are open, welcoming, multicultural and multilingual. We share not only food together, but life, emotions, humanity. For all good people this is home.

    The learning areas are different: starting from natural farming techniques, permaculture design, preparation of healthy food, green energy, natural structures and infrastructures that use recycled materials, in a word how to achieve self-sufficiency and a sustainable life.
