THE DAY – Nine years of life, nine years of stories and experiences that intersect and sometimes come back to life through the work and the meeting on the fields. And we are not in the countryside but in cities, the fish, on the "Orti d'Oro" Domenico Allegrino.

Although in recent times you face a lot of talk about urban gardening, a 9 years after its launch, the project "Orti d'Oro" is still unique in the centrosud to meet the need of social and even economic support of the people of the third and fourth age, people who have the time and experience to get into a debate with a unique challenge as to cultivate their own vegetable garden without ever having done it before, free to enjoy the fruits of their efforts.

With the delivery of the "Orti d'oro" for new gardeners is repeated for the ninth consecutive year, one of the most intense social initiatives of the "Domenico Allegrino" Onlus. That of this morning stata also an opportunity to take stock of what is one of the most unique and important projects of the Association, dedicated to pensioners passion for agriculture, or with the desire to socialize and of spend their leisure time in a creative way.

THE DECLARATION –We arrived well 9 years, yet each time the delivery of the fields is an exciting time for gardeners and for all volunteers” – explained Antonella Allegrino, President of the Association "Domenico Allegrino" Onlus.

"Every day there are many people who contact us to ask us to join the initiative and it's really a shame not to be able to please everyone. Thanks to the opening of the second site via Lago Negro, we are able to offer this opportunity to 53 people who live their everyday life in the field with an enthusiasm and a passion Special.

Our intention, but, is to continue to grow yet those few occasions we have defined 'Small Gardens’ that is why, as every year, My appeal is addressed to the local institutions so take steps to make their own this wonderful initiative, helping us to extend it and make it grow because it has an important value not only from the standpoint of social and relational gardeners but, in this time of great economic hardship, also economical because the fieldwork, through the harvest, often results in a small, big savings on everyday. Of course the same appeal is addressed to the Private landowners who do not use or which remain uncultivated, and which are compatible, to be flat, to an agricultural use like the one here. Make them available to resume life, also offering the opportunity to live a better fellow citizens who have time and desire to be realized in a singular goal might look like that of a garden, is a new way of doing something concrete for the other.
