I'm Amedeo, 30yrs old, from Rome! I've been studying and exploring the permaculture world for two years.
I finally took the step of moving in the countryside, in the 3Ha land and ruins my grandfathers left me, i know this is such a gift: good, deep, fertile soil, infinite water, just 30km from Rome...
Yet, live feels hard here and every little steep needs time, effort and money... I also feel alone in this adventure... so i wanted to share my journey and project...  I found a job in an orchard trees nursery so i can learn as i bring home trees and propagation material... I'd like to create a 3ha forest farm: vegetables, fruit, nuts, chicken eggs, ponds, little wooden cabins to host people and wwoofers to share the adventure and stop being lonely.... That's my dream! I'll soon post more details of my project in order to share ideas!!!

Happy to be here, there is a lot to learn

Welcome here at Permies!
You have a wonderful starting point, with a climate much milder than here in Germany so gardening should be a pleasure.
Share your thoughts and successes and post your questions, this is a very helpful community.

Welcome.  Your property looks amazing.  It is a lot of work, but if you do a little at a time it will be easier and less frustrating.  You may have 3 or 4 or 10 different projects working at the same time, each day work on the one that interests you.  Sometimes you have to push and complete a project, but once it is done you will appreciate your work, take a break, and then do a little work on another project.  One step at a time.  I am starting my 6th year of working my property and building my own house.  It's a lot of work, but each step gives you an appreciation for your accomplishments.

I live in Utah, I grew up near Detroit, Michigan where my grandparents immigrated about 100 years ago, my grandparents grew up in Palermo, Sicily.  My girlfriends family is from Northern Italy.  Welcome to the Permies family. Salute.

A comfortable chair in the yard is very helpful for relaxing and enjoying your achievements.  It also is where I sit and relax and look around and notice a dozen little things I need to do causing me to get up and do something real quick only to sit down and find something else to do.  
 
What do you have to say for yourself? Hmmm? Anything? And you call yourself a tiny ad.
