The main activity of the Slow Food Convivium of Fossano is the management of the School Gardens, a project that started in 2005 and that every year involves a growing number of institutes and cities surrounding the Fossano area.
To date the Convivium manages 50 school gardens in nursery and primary schools, actively involving more than 4000 children from 3 to 12 years of age, about 70 teachers and 16 municipalities, not to mention the very important work carried out by volunteer gardeners, agricultural technicians and local sponsors who make the project possible. Every year Slow Food Italy offers an in-depth study of issues related to the environment and its protection. On the 11th November, St. Martin’s Day, the feast of the Gardens is celebrated and the Condotta of Fossano will distribute 100 kits to the schools participating in the “Orti in Condotta”, in order to raise awareness among 3,500 to 4,000 young students of the precious water, a theme chosen for this school year.
Event for primary school students in the Municipality of Fossano.
