A producers’ network meeting.

Chestnut-growing is a crucial resource for mountain areas and makes a positive contribution to the ecosystem of the foothills in terms of protection of the landscape and ecological integrity, soil conservation, forest preservation, promotion of biodiversity, and carbon dioxide capture.

Unfortunately, the production crisis that has affected this industry in the last few years, has been made even worse by plant diseases and the effects of the current climate change. How can traditional chestnut-growing be saved and revived? How can we promote this product that is so important to the identity of mountain areas the communities that live there?

The Slow Food chestnut producers’ network shares their experiences and main difficulties, and exchanges ideas to improve the prospects of this strategic resource, providing new development opportunities for the foothills of the Apennine and the Alps.

This event is free and open to all.
