In this edition of the Googreen market, the Metropolitan Pollinators Community will exhibit a history of beekeeping through hives, the bee houses that man has joyfully guarded for thousands of years. From historical dwellings to Japanese urban beehives, creative beehives and even our own experimental beehives.

100 years after the birth of “popular” beekeeping in Turin, the aim is to propose a new model of community through bees to create the first and only urban beekeeping manifesto on the planet: to create pastures for pollinators, social inclusion projects, sentient networks of new cultural, gastronomic and social biodiversity. Reviewing the concept of the city through the solid roots we have been able to defend, the centuries-old experience of an urban practice that has already distinguished itself for food education with the “House of Good Honey” established in 1928 in Turin, with the biomonitoring of the city’s environment through bee stations, which is still ongoing, and environmental sustainability education in schools.

Live streaming at 3 p.m. with Guido Cortese and Lorenzo de Laugier.

The lowered shutters of the Sambuy gazebo again become a support for a small, large exhibition. In collaboration with Circoscrizione 1 and FAI, the work carried out by the class 5E of the Regina Margherita High School that, during the last lockdown, took part in the FAI project to talk about the city by analysing and telling about the historical Sambuy Gardens will be exhibited. On the wave of the Apprendisti Ciceroni project – an extraordinary experience of active citizenship that the Delegations and offices of the FAI Heritage have been carrying out since 1996 and that gives students the opportunity to discover and know how to spread the heritage of art and nature of their territory, feeling directly involved in the social, cultural and economic life of the community – on the 8th of November, a voice, value and continuity will be given to the commitment of this industrious class.

Live streaming at 11 a.m. with the presence of representatives of Circoscrizione 1, FAI and Liceo Regina Margherita.
