We were very involved here in Southern New England in the last few months,
and I haven't looked on here for quite some time.
...yet I felt as if we might be looking for each other." )
I grew up half of my childhood on a homestead/ fattoria biologica & vigneto di famiglia/ podere restaurato
of my grandma/ Nonna near Pistoia.
Later I studied biological agriculture and oenology/ "vineyard & wine sciences", horticulture & (agri)tourism, (M.A.) in Heilbronn, Germany,
San Michele, Alto Adige, and Bordeaux, France; (as well as Herbalism, plus some Restoration & Art History..)
worked as a consultant, among others for a small upscale organic winery on an old Medici estate north of Florence;
and studied permaculture design & implementation under Sepp Holzer and Geoff Lawton, as well as
woofing for inspiring examples from around the world .
I also studied sustainable building techniques & "technologies" in theory and practice.
In the last few years I have consulted cool climate wineries, small scale organic farms and conjoint bed & breakfast operations
in New England and surrounding states as well as the pacific north west. (Partly very similar climate to Northern Italy
and similar soil structure to the foothills of the Apennines..)
..on the implementation of permaculture design & principles into running endeavors as well as to transform maggese into food forests..
I'd be interested in returning home for the right project!
My hopes for the near future are to get involved in a permacultural eco-socio project, that will
afford a long-term home(stead) for my family. Any project that can bring us closer to this end is exciting to consider.
If any of this sounds appealing and fitting to you,
I'm excited to hear back: ) !
