Among the project’s activities, networking is one of the most intriguing. It’s an occasion  for comparing, exchanging, and learning about people and places.

We were in Tuscany, specifically Loro Ciuffena in the province of Arezzo, the last 4-5-6 October, as guests of the colleagues of the project LIFE Granatha, with LIFE Shepforbio.

We spent three intense days immersed in the wonder of the Tuscany landscape in autumn, discovering the beautyful and useful Erica scoparia, and the “strategic” techniques of restoring heatlands.

Thank you so much for your hospitality, LifeGranatha colleagues!
