Agriculture, the environment and social responsibility
Cultivating organically, socially and plastic free
To help the world become a better place we are passionate about creating nature friendly products.
Promoters of social agriculture
We have contributed to the start of social agriculture being seen as an educational and therapeutic activity.
We have agreements and conventions with Social Bodies and Cooperatives and have strong partnerships with other farms.
All the cultivation phases are guided and supervised by our agricultural technical consultant Gian Guido Restieri.
Specialized in the cultivation of aromatic plants for transplantation
Our production focuses on four lines:
Seed trays, Aromatic plants, the wood fibre pots and the 9cm diameter pots 100% Bio and Biodegradable.
This production choice allows us to drastically reduce the use of plastic materials.
32 boxes of mono-varietal aromatic plants ready for transplanting in pots or in the field.
Seedlings in rectangular boxes which are 5.5cm in diameter and 6cm in height.
The boxes and seed trays are made of wood fibres and recycled and recyclable polystyrene
Boxes with 24 aromatic seedlings of 6 mixed varieties ready for transplanting into the field.
Seedlings 7cm x 6.5cm and 6cm in height.
The boxes are made of recycled and recyclable polystyrenee.
Vases made out of wood fibres
100% natural pots to be planted directly in the field.
Pot diameter 11.5cm, height 11cm.
For cultivation and handling we use boxes of 8 pots in recycled and recyclable polystyrene.
Vase is made entirely of natural fibres.
Recycled and recyclable cardboard basket, paper handle..
Pot diameter 9cm.
We have created a line of aromatic plants in wood fibre pots,
which are naturally biodegradable and can be transplanted in the field along with the plant.
The Vases are made out of wood fibres.
During growth, the roots pierce the vase and take root in the surrounding earth.
After being transplanted, the pot has become one with the soil and the plant.
Our objective is to be 100% plastic freee
Our goal is the total reduction of plastic.
At the moment, for the cultivation and handling of the plants we use recycled and recyclable polystyrene boxes which are then reused.
For sale, the plants are placed in wooden boxes..
We are partners of the SUSLO project
The quality of horticultural products has improved in recent years thanks to increasingly sustainable means of production but the sustainability of the packaging is still an unsolved problem. New eco-sustainable pots have been introduced and the good practice of reusing plastic pots can help increase the sustainability of the packaging. The primary objective is to promote eco-sustainable behaviour by consumers of horticultural products through communication based on the 'Nudge Theory' whose effectiveness is still being investigated.
The SUSLO project is partially funded by the CARIPLO Foundation's "Plastic challenge: challenge to eradicate disposable plastics" #conFondazioneCariplo.
Inclusive Social agriculture.
We are the promoters of a social agriculture program with an educational-therapeutic and social inclusion function.

A path of laboratory learning, socialisation and rehabilitation of guests of these organisations and of people unable to enter the normal labour market.
