It starts with the cultivation of confiscated land to create not only quality but social agriculture, which places the person and the community of reference at the center. The activities are aimed at involving the community, for the socio-cultural change of the territory and to make confiscated assets and common symbols and resources of communities free from the Camorra more and more. On the confiscated property of Afragola, we sow, cultivate and harvest while the transformation takes place in small highly qualified laboratories.
