Social seedbed

The idea of a nursery-archive was born from the meeting with a group of “custodian” farmers and experiences, including urban ones spread throughout Italy of self-production and protection of biodiversity, where typical horticultural species of the territory are reproduced and preserved or rare. The free distribution of seedlings and seeds is aimed at sharing a traditional culture, responsibility towards what is produced and what is consumed. Through the work of the social seedbed we came into contact with schools of various levels and degrees, also developing didactic courses. The social seedbed is also a convivial place, where everyone participates in the sowing and distribution of seedlings, where they eat together and exchange ideas and experiences also with special guests.
