  • Description

    Description

    We are a group of friends, mostly hailing from Benevento, with a big passion for agriculture and the environment.
    We are a group of people with different backgrounds, including agricultural.
     
    We are people who have lived stories of emigration and who have decided to return to our land.
    Slowly we came back.
     
    In places that seemed to offer more training opportunities and employment we have also had the opportunity to look more closely at the contradictions of this society and our lifestyles. The motivation that encouraged us to come back is to try in our little an alternative, a change of course, new solutions that have a long shadow on our future.
     
    This place is the fertile ground from which was born the idea to get together to try, slowly, to find a road that leads to a better place.
     
    For this reason born our Cooperativa.
     
    We are a group of dreamers who are trying, with the resources available, to enhance public goods perspective of sustainable agriculture, innovative productions and methods.
     
    Our motto is composed of a single word: "sustainability" ( environmental, economic and social).
     
    Environmental sustainability mean for the field research of alternative agricultural practices to those spread today which have a significant impact on nature for the use of chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc ...), invasive operations, overexploitation of land .
     
    For economic sustainability mean the research of agricultural practices, in addition to respecting the environment and the genuineness of the products, they are also profitable enough to ensure a decent future for the shareholders and for our cooperative.
     
    Finally, for social sustainability we mean the ability of agricultural activities bring benefits to disadvantaged people, to give dignity to people with disabilities through social activities which promote the right to health, understood as psychological well-being, promoting awareness and education of families and society, integrating not approved or assimilate.  
     
    We want to be a shout of hope, a stone thrown into a pond, a question mark for ourselves and for our territory.
