Future Food Institute of Bologna in collaboration with Ruritage – Heritage for rural regeneration – and the Vazapp rural hub had launched the online petition ‘#adottauncontadino’ (#adoptafarmer) to support small farmers. Whoever signs the petition takes a commitment to buy something as soon as possible from a farmer or a farmer’s market. “By signing you decide to save a piece of Italian countryside“, write the promoters on Change.org.
“Is anyone worrying about what we will eat in the coming weeks? What we do not collect today – they continue – will not end up on the shelves tomorrow. What will not be possible to plant, will not sprout. What will not be taken care of, will become ruined”.
