Agritorino is an initiative, launched in Turin in 2012, promoted by various local voluntary associations: Sermig, Cottolengo, Congregazione Salesiana, Padri Somaschi, Permicro Banca di microcredito e Piazza dei Mestieri. The project aims to combine support to family incomes, sustainable agriculture and vocational training, by entrusting young unemployed people to cultivate lands that had been left fallow due to the economic and rural crisis. The new young farmers are trained on sustainable agriculture and are expected to sell a part of their production at a fair price to benefit vulnerable citizens.
