  • Description


    Is a small project of 1 hectare (located in Verogna in the municipality of Bettola, in the province of Piacenza, in the Emilia Romagna region), with the possibility to expand into the areas of surrounding abandoned land. We grow vegetables, walnuts and fruit mainly for our own use. Our project is also a centre where we practice Natural Hygiene System and care for our health without the use of medicines. We also host people who wish to learn that sistem and to come for depurative diets and fasting. We are vegans and vegetarians. We are in an abandoned village in the hills which we hope to repopulate and bring back to life. In all the reconstruction work we pay careful attention to 'green' building methods. We are waiting for you.
