Is it possible to meet each other?
I'm Florentin, italian designer, and I'm currently living in San Francisco. One of my participations is in the cofarming project, started in Italy in 2008. Take a look at the italian page: http://www.cofarming.net/ .
I'd like to start a conversation on it. Your project and trip are really a good idea. Congrats!
Please don't hesitate to contact me while you're here.
