I am from the Netherlands, the last 19 years living in Norway. In 2015 I took my PDC at Panya in Thailand. The last 8 years I have been looking around the world to find the place where I feel better, can use permaculture and become old.
- Zone 11A, Arid, Subtropical, 7-42C, Mediterranean
Winter 2016 I tried once more to find a place in the south of Europe and went to Crete, Greece. I immediately felt at home there and started looking around for land. But that was not easy, a lot is sold 'illegally'. In April I went again and in May I asked my lawyer to start checking everything. This process is still going on, but in July I hope to go again and put my signature under the contract.
In the mean time I am reading everything I find to prepare myself for moving from zone 8 to zone 11A, to a dry (sub)tropical Mediterranean climate. In Norway I have experience from apricots, grapes to cherries and plums, some permaculture, etc. Now I am looking forward to take care of the 10 olive trees and dive into figs, carob, mesquite, passion fruit, jujubi, pomegranate, mulberry, dade palm, citrus, etc. Coming winter I want to take my 2 Ginko biloba trees of 3 yr old with me, as well as my 3 yr old from a seed grown pink grapefruit from the Philippines; in my backpack, on the plane, cut down, without dirt. The first two years I will only be there for 6 months each year, observing everything, planning etc.
Today I started a new blog, Permaculture on Crete. http://permaculturetertsa.blogspot.com/
Here I present the land for you, 2 km from the sea, on a slope, the upper part pretty steep (10%?) and the top even steeper. On my blog I wrote some of the questions I have. I am looking forward to get input about what to do with the 'cut down' in the land.
