  1. Hi
    I would like to learn more about permaculture and also stay for 2-3 weeks, maybe longer.
    For me it would be possible to come from the beginning of September until the end of September/beginning of October.
    Is there interest from your side at this time? If so, we could talk on the phone via Zoom, for example. would that be possible?
    briefly to me:

    I am 39, very interested and connected to holistic health, medicine, plants, nature.
    Vegan, vegetarian is good for me and I love the sea.
