Farmer

Years with Kroka: 8, as parent of Kroka kids

Narrative
SILVANO believes that growing good food will help heal people and the earth. Food is love and love must be the way! He believes that it is our obligation to heal and preserve the earth for future generations. For this reason Silvano joined a pacifist movement in Italy in 1977. In 1983 he began his experience with organic and biodynamic farming, working full-time on organic and biodynamic farms and dairies from 1989 to 2004 and part-time from 2005 to 2012. Both modes of farming not only aid the earth in repairing its many damaged elements and promoting new healthy life, but also produces good food that contributes positively to the development of human thought. This is a fundamental element to evolution. Silvano will be 55 years old this year and believes that he can still contribute valuably through his work to the preservation of the earth for the future.
