Short description

The olive tree ‒ which from a scientific point of view is not a tree, but a shrub ‒ spread in the eastern Mediterranean thanks to the Sumerians. It was then the Romans who brought oil to Libya and the western coasts. We plant olive trees in Rome, a few steps from the Great Ring Route. The olive grove is managed by the Capodarco cooperative which has been dealing with agriculture and social issues for more than 40 years.

Where will it be planted?

A social olive grove in Rome. In Centocelle, a few steps away from the Great Ring Route, we have created an olive grove on the land owned by the municipality of Rome, managed by the Capodarco social agricultural cooperative, which has been involved in social and agriculture for more than 40 years. Social rehabilitation activities, training and job placement courses as well as educational-environmental activities are connected to social agriculture.

Why sustainable development?

Thanks to the integration between its various areas of work areas, the Capodarco social agricultural cooperative is a recognized example of a social farm, where the production-related component is strictly functional to the development of the social component and vice versa.
