Announcing our Borgo Basino Barnraising Tour!


From October 28th-November 11th, I’ll be touring the US with my son and Beatrice, Stefano and their son Bernardo to “raise the barn” on our new farm project in Italy. After many years of work, we are finally very excited to share that our community is coming together on the farm and we’re starting new agricultural projects, farm to table hospitality and community research on holistic health. Join us!

If you or folks you know are interested in community building and organizing, food, farming, holistic health, alternative economies, human rights, and sustainability, you are invited to come see us and learn more. We’ll have organic fair trade T-shirts, raffles, interactive community research opportunities and more!
