Janas – an initiative to support

The well-attended meeting at the end of November ratified the widespread need for Janas to continue to live for the well-being of those present and of others who, although absent at the time, expressed their strong interest in the project: it was thus possible for the board of directors of MAG6 to gather the concrete solidarity of the local community and subscribe to the loan that will allow Eleonora and Ivan to proceed with the purchase of their workplace.

Capre e Cesti: putting our idea into action

Capre e Cesti: putting our idea into action

The project revolves around the idea of reorganising a cheese production trade, which was started 10 years ago with a few goats (presently a herd of 60) by Attilio, a native of the village of Tufillo. The Fattoria Fonte Trocchi is collaborating trough the purchase of 2/3 of the goats and is contributing with two new workers (Federica and Tullio) and occasionally other participants such as woofers and potential new workers on trial. We will collaborate with the Corpo Forestale (Forestry Department) to determine the areas of woodland and scrubland where firebreaks can be created through goat grazing, with Saverio Danubio, a biotechnologist, for the management of the goat manure in an insect-composting plant, and with local farmers for hay and oat supplies during periods when grazing is not sufficient.

Federica, Massimo and Paolo wondered about the evolution that the world around the Garden has experienced over the years and came to the conclusion that the Garden deserved to live a new phase.
