Re: Courses in Bahia, Brazil
Hi I am a new face
I just bought land in North East Brazil, and am interested
in permaculture, since the land is perfect for my project. I have travelled
the world for 17 years now and enjoy the earth. I am Canadian and live in
Quebec, but venture many other worlds and build and preserve the places that
I can. Even though I am one of the few guru's of Telephony and electronics
from way back! I started from the earth and became a electronic nut, but
time has brought me back to the earth. I have been abused by machine, and
use by the government for it!
I chose to respond to your e-mail for several reasons. I have been
montioring the permaculture page for a while now. And I like the topic.
Since I was brought up to understand the process of permaculture from many
different perspectives. I feel that now is time to GET involved! Please can
you tell me more about the trips objective.
Reverand Dr. Kent Jared
