Ciao!. This is a little farm in the Appennini between Bologna e Firenze; we are 500 meters on the see level.
My name is Laura and I'm a biologist and herbalist. My work is to teach to school and adults about plants, about how to collect , use and transform plants to benefit of their richness of properties. I live in a quite old farming house of medieval period, surrounded by woods, fields of medicinal plants, some fruit trees... There are many nice walks departing from house that leads into old and forgotten streets tha pass along ancient villages and stream and forest...
I live here with my yongest son, he is 11 years old; I have also a daughter, 21 years old, and a son 20 years old....but they come here some times.
I run also a little herbalist laboratory to transform the plants into medicines, cosmetics and soap.
Thank you for having read me and sorry for my very poor English, Laura
