My Permaculture Qualifications
About Galileo Monnet-Martin
I grew up in France in the country side where I get some interest in farming and philosophy with my grandfather. I have got my highscholl diplom and I started travelling in Europe doing some WWoofing but I didn't find totaly what I was looking for until I met some people in Scotland. They trained on permaculture me by giving me some English lesson (everyone knows that French people have really bad English) and giving to me a big reading list. I found Fukuoka's book amazing and I wanted to see where I could find people using this kind of techniques. So I went to the Middle East because I wanted some warm and dry climate to see from my eyes how permaculture will work there.
After 6 months in PRI Jordan I get a PDC course in Amman in September 2011 where I get more knowledge.
Now I'm basically a student in Geneva's University but involving myself in urban gardenning and fight for student rights to local and organic food.
When I've some free time I'm going to visit friend who started a small permaculture project in Thailand and Spain to get more practical skills in their own climate.
