Messina Micropresentation

  2. 2. The field used is owned by one of the participant’s families. This field was abandoned for many years. It’s possible to identify some keywords for the project such as: food autonomy, permaculture, cooperation, energy saving, 0 miles, seed savers, composting. Both projects were begun by young people.
  3. 3. Thanks to strong cooperation between the participants and their willingness to donate time, skills and work, it was possible to obtain in the first six months some important results like building a seedbed to obtain self-production of organic plants. The main benefits are to improve in young people the love for their land and the importance of sharing experiences and skills.
  4. 4. The projects are also important to improve the awareness that it is possible to satisfy our food needs in urban areas thanks to real, satisfying cooperation with fewer money resources. In the future, permaculture principles will be used also to develop food forests, animal husbandry, wastewater purification through constructed wetland biofilters, etc.
