Borgo Basino Folk School Ecovillage Farm

In 2015, my wife and I moved with our young family to her family’s agriturismo in rural Italy to realize a dream now 7 years in the making. Our grassroots folk school, ecovillage, and organic farm Borgo Basino will serve as a hub for grassroots training, point of transition for volunteers returning from periods of civil service, and agricultural experimentation lab. We write about our thoughts and daily life on our blog, Donkey Coaxing.

We are aspiring members of the Global Ecovillage Network Europe, the Italian Ecovillage Network (RIVE) and actively volunteer in the European network for community-led initiatives on climate change and sustainability (ECOLISE).
