Regional Permaculture

novembre 19, 2014

On a sunny, still warm sunday of november i went to The first Le Marche permaculture gathering in Pianello di Ostra. The aim of The gathering was to create in this region a group of people interested and involved in permaculture, Being inspired by other similar experience in Italy. The location of The meeting was a local ecovillage property with included a pretty large house and five hectars of land that is going to be used appling permaculture principles. We arrived at ten in The morning and all The other partecipants came afterwords. With my surprise, The group was pretty large, Being around forty of us, from all around The region, and even further. There was no schedule and we decided to have a first chat introducing ourself and our knowledge of The concept of permaculture.

Then we had a walk to see The land where we were, with The Garden (both synergic and traditional), The orchard, with many cherry trees, and The rest that has to be used to plant olive trees and hedges and a food forest.

The lunch was another chance for more talks that ended with some greetings and departures and a visit to The main site of The ecovillage nearby, a community started quite long time ago that is growing and going on really well.
We left with The idea of organizing other gathering in different area of The region to see other projects and keep alive this network of people to share knowledge and skills.
