De Gustibus Network organizes about twice a month an event at the associated farms. Purpose of the events is to bring the consumer to the place of origin of his food, to promote the farms and artisan workshops as places of culture and cultural heritage, to inform to the consumers about the methods of substainable agriculture, based on techniques/recepies which could realize healthy products of high quality also before the expansion of chemical industry. The farms respect the environment, they keep it clean, healthy and in shape, because it is fundamental for the future of our life quality, economy, wellness.
