  • Description


    The property lies in a great forest of pines, birches and spruces, in North-East Småland, something 300 km from Copenaghen, Stockholm and Göteborg.
    It’s 1 ha land in a sunny and warm glade. The big forest has a network of paths, that lead also to little lakes. During summer the forest is full of blueberry, mushrooms and so on.
    I’ve just got this small and peaceful property after other careful people loved it since the 1940s. And now I long to enhance the richness of this plot of land to shape a forest recovering for bodies and souls.
    I’m a thirty years old Italian guy, I’ve a background in Humanities studies and I’ve been a volunteer in organic farms myself. At this point of my life, having left the city life to reach an essential living, my project now is to take care of this property starting with a plan of permaculture. The project is at its very beginning and, in time, the aim will be to create a regeneration place for people, revealing the hidden healing properties of every single element of the forest, sun rocks and water, enriching the variety of plants and introducing only ecological, non permanent man-made structures. One of the goals is also to reach an energetic self sufficiency by the aid of wind turbines and solar power.
