ACARBIO – sustainable development, old food traditions and biodiversity preservation in the area of the Amalfi Coast. Since ACARBIO was established, there has always been a commitment to protect the biodiversity of the Campania region and enhance the use of local products. For our organization is very important to be respectful to traditions and the environment, promoting sustainable agriculture practices and small-scale local production of fruits and vegetables, that are only present in this region. This is the case of the “Re Umberto” tomato, also known as “Fiascone”, a tasty and unique fruit from the 1800s, that was re-discovered with the help of local farmers that kept the seeds.

There are three formats of experiences:
