While at Skidmore, Ale focused on land management, Italian food culture, and regenerative agriculture. After graduating, he returned to his home in Italy to grow his own vegetables. He also traveled to Jordan to receive his permaculture design certificate, and then to Spain to participate in a land reforestation project. From January to March of 2022 Alessandro traveled to farms in Sicily to gain practical experience working outdoors, and consulted farmers for better natural resource management. During his time in Sicily, Ale has shared valuable information and wisdom with local farmers to help increase their positive impact, and make their land more resilient to climate change. He now works as a forest steward and landscape designer, helping to keep wild areas growing healthily. Ale is fluent in Italian and English and proficient in Portuguese. Ale has applied to the Peace Corps, and will hopefully be going to Senegal in September.
