While I conduct my PhD research, I also help co-manage a small-scale ecological restoration and farming project in the South of Italy with my partner. Our more-than-farming project "Niter" has been built on principles of agroecology/permaculture, energy and water self-sufficiency and what I call "ecological mutual aid". Hence, unlike the focus of organic farms and practices on 'bio' and non-human entities generally understood as "living", we extend our efforts to ecological relationships between bio and geo, including soils, energy and water.
