Summary of the project
The association Ri-puliamoci was used to organise cleaning days as part of its mandate, which foresees the maintenance and restoration of the green areas in Altamura, a small city in Southern Italy.
With this project, the idea is to go beyond by regenerating an entire green area through a durable intervention with the direct involvement of the citizenship, who will become more responsible and attentive towards the protection of public green areas.
The main activity is tough a course on permaculture to make this method to design and manage man-made landscapes known to the citizenship. Moreover, the permaculture course aims to bring citizenship closer to this discipline, to train a group of activists operating in the territory, to contribute to the recover a degraded green area in the suburbs, realizing a “garden of the simples” and to constitute an open source course always accessible to everybody.
