com·post noun \ˈkäm-ˌpōst, : a mixture that consists largely of transformed decayed organic matter converted into a nutrient rich substance used for fertilizing and conditioning land.
This is the story of our own organic transformation towards a different way of life. We've taken a crazy leap of faith, believing in a return to the earth, even for those of us that weren't born farmers or inherit a piece of land. We're starting our farm from scratch. We built our project on paper and it took us over a year to get financing to purchase our dream parcel of land (it seems like a miracle in these crazy economic times that we ever pulled that off at all), and now we're finally geared up, totally exhillarated and ready to begin this fabulous adventure.
Step by step this blog aims to document our work in progress, from our dream, to the creation of our farm, putting permaculture and biodynamic agriculture to practice, the work, the process, the harvests and our transformation from lives in the restaurant and travel industries to our new lives as organic farmers at Costa Digiano.
This is a work in progress and we invite you to follow us, with hope… or with skepticism… on a simple journey towards believing that transformation is possible.
