A Few Words About Me
Bali Bonacci has dedicated the past 10 years of his life to community development throughout Oregon, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Hawaii. He has developed master permaculture plans for the Kirpal Ecological Center, Gopal’s Healthfoods, and Top of the Mountain LLC. He specializes in animal husbandry, earthworks, regenerative systems, and land management.
Before Bali dedicated his life to farming, he was certified in holistic medicine with Fountainhead clinic in Missoula, Montana. In 2010, he became a raw-food chef at Prana Cafe in Boston, Massachusetts. After living a raw-food lifestyle for an entire year, Bali was convinced that a whole-food diet was the key component to great health. This realization took on a new form as he learned to develop community living and became interested in the symbiotic relationships between humans, plants, and animals.
Bali believes that the food-to-table dynamic is a relationship that is experienced on many levels. His involvement in community building, permaculture designs and techniques, animal husbandry, and alternative building have given him the confidence to steward land in a practical, creative, and regenerative way. As a certified permaculture teacher and a tradesman he is using his experience to create a place where people can come and learn sustainable techniques that can be applied to everyday living at home and on the farm.
