OUR EXPERIENCES

SDG WE APPLY

SUSTAINABILITY,

POSITIVE SOCIAL AND ECOLOGICAL IMPACT

The activity deepens our knowledge of how we think about agroecology and responsible consumerism.

The farm is managed by a cooperative which works according to social and supportive economy criteria: it uses ethical banking and uses its resources efficiently. It has a participatory and transparent way of working, and it maintains a healthy work-life balance and employs immigrants in vulnerable situations.

The food products are, when possible, KM0 and ecologically friendly.

We use biodegradable or reusable tableware.
