Food education

Strong foundations for the future

We are preparing for the future by rooting ourselves in tradition. To make good bread, and do it well, we need fertile land, less waste, and natural biodiversity. Understanding the food we bring home can change the way we eat: by choosing the right food, we can nourish our bodies and take care of the environment.

For more than 20 years, we have given schools and families in the province of Arezzo and the Municipality of Civitella in Val di Chiana the chance to take part in fun educational activities, taking them out into the fields to sow wheat. Just as those tiny seeds will grow into something great, we are sowing the foundations for our future.

Back to the soil: food and environmental education with Slow Food's Orti in Condotta

Since 2004, we have been involved in fun educational activities as part of Slow Food’s Orti in Condotta project, under which around 500 schools throughout Italy have started their own vegetable gardens.

Together with students, teachers, families and local producers, we are part of a vital education community that is working to share knowledge related to food and environmental protection with the younger generations.

The schools participating in the Orti in Condotta project are part of a large network: together, they are promoting the right to enjoy food in schools.

To offer educational activities in local schools, we have joined forces with Confartigianato Imprese Arezzo, with whom we launched the “Scuola Artigiana” project to make bread in the classroom and give students new knowledge and flavours to bring home.
