Italy is one of the lucky countries with Mediterranean climate. For this reason our fruit grows abundantly everywhere. Even along the streets of our cities there are orchards that in our hasty life style we notice only when we get our shoes dirty by the trod ripe fruits fallen to the ground.
We can now be smarter and avoid such a waste; indeed this is wealth that could be distributed to those who need it and could also help save on costs of cleaning streets! This is what inspired the "Collettivo Frutta Urbana" to start in Rome the project "Urban fruit" that is the first Italian project to map, collect and distribute fruits which grow in public parks and and in the gardens of the city.
If you want to know more about this projet give a look to www.fruttaurbana.org. Here you can see the map showing you, for example, that there is a medlar in Via Marco Aurelio and a cherry tree in Via Luciano Manara!
In the past beans were the meat of the poors: beans have always had many nutritional and energetic qualities.
