“La terra che non c’è” transforms contaminated, built-up, abandoned land into community vegetable gardens to produce fresh food to support poor people thanks to innovative techniques of farming out-soil with the involvement of the inhabitants of the suburbs in processes of self-building and care.
Shared * Supportive
Our vegetable-gardens are shared, supportive, inclusive and based on the idea of combining active citizenship and the beauty of projects to allow to retrieve areas and places for the community that can take advantage from the gift of food.
