Testimonials:
John D Liu
In Catanzaro - Italy at our host farm The Urban Permaculture Laboratory

It's astonishing that  crops that we now consider that we have to propagate are volunteering to come back either reseeding themselves because they're allowed to go to seed or they're just adopting sort of perennial systems so you have these enormous root systems which have grown up over time and they continue to flower and continue to feed into future, into the next generation. This is highly productive. This is done in an urban area.
Antonio Pisante
I was referred by John D Liu.

The greatest lesson I enjoyed was the lesson on the soil. It gave me hope but also a sense of urgency.

Great Interaction, Respect for People, Respect for Nature, he also has a great sense of humor
Extra mile was being able to give knowledge, technical advice to start projects but also gives hope. Hope for a new future. Hope for a new way of treating our planet.

After taking his course I was able to start running a small organic piece of land 3000 Square Meters.
Tara Gayle
After taking this course I will be able to incorporate what I do for my profession.
I am eager to continue the courses with Giuseppe to continue with the practical work.

Charl Laing
We learned so much not only from a Permaculture point of view but also Giuseppe brings much more to the table from a Regenerative point of view. A lot of practice rather than theory. Giuseppe brings much more to the table than just a simple PDC.

Weruschca Kirkegaard
Very full days here but very fulfilling. In the experience of interacting with nature and the plants and everything and all is just enjoyable.

Interacting with the people it's very cool, it's very calm, it's warm, it's relaxed, it's respectful, It's nice, as if I think every time you choose an aspect of working with nature you meet soul partners or soul sisters and brothers everybody has the same attitude so you instantly connect and every body is very easy.
