I am a mature man interested in the develop of permaculture projects, I live at Petralia Soprana, in a beautiful rural restructured house in the sicilian fields, that works actually as a vacation house for guests.
I work on a project of energy production through compost making. I am interested to carry on a resilent project in a mark of sustainable permaculture in all areas. I am inspired by permacultural experiences, exchanges and the promotion of sustainable energy.
At home I live alone, I have a stable relationship (she works and live at Palermo).

You could learn a lot about permaculture, about sustainable energy systems and agriculture, eco friendly architecture and enviroments.
You can stay in a beautiful place in Sicily, not far from the city (Palermo), neither from the sea and the mountains. Parco delle Madonie is an amazing turistic place, protected by UNESCO, with many small pictoric towns and many biological products and services.
You can taste amazing flavours, from ancient products and traditional culture.
Depending on the period of the year, I would like to have some help with the garden, growing and taking care of plants, also colecting fruits and vegetables and general maintenance. I have some eco projects and I also need some help with the renovation of ancient objects. I would like also to make natural marmelade, oils and other natural healing products.

I would love also to take some practice with my basic english, and I can teach you italian language.
