Giuseppe Sannicandro studied ethics and politics focusing on ecological issues and, at the same time, is looking at ecology as the only possible source of solutions. He started and coordinated for many years a local buying group with some friends, promoting organic agriculture, «Do It Yourself» products, and networks between farmers and consumers. Since he met permaculture he started to develop synergistic gardens, food forests, educational projects for children and young people focused on agroecology, natural and sustainable lifestyle. Since 2013 in his city, Bitonto, south of Italy, he manages an experimental site with different gardening techniques and a food forest with a group of passionate friends. He is also designing and giving consultancies for urban permaculture projects and some others in the countryside. He organizes and teaches in permaculture workshops and courses, in particular on water management, soil developement, gardening and food forest establishment.
