Can we find agricultural methods that respect biodiversity?

Each and every one of us can see and feel the effects of climate change, whether we believe that to be true or not. We have ignored the advice from the scientific world for too long. Human activity has used and exhausted the soil in such a way that it led to a dramatic decline of the biodiversity (plants, insects, fish, birds, mammals) on our planet.
 
Modern agriculture occupies gigantic proportions of the planet’s soil, diminishing its natural fertility and polluting our air and water. The industry used the land like there would be no end to its resources, and hoping to maintain its abundance by chemistry alone.
This unsustainable idea has proven worthless and is only defended by multinationals in the industry. It’s important for all of us to realise that if we want change, we need to act and we can’t wait for others to do it for us.
The turning point is to find alternative, sustainable, and productive agricultural-urban-landscape models that sustain and protect the ecosystem. We need agriculture to produce life instead of profits.
 
This is what Regenerating Villa Fortuna is about.
The project conducts research and experiments with several ideas in order to design a replicable agricultural model that’s sustains the environment. It will be conducted in collaboration and scientific assistance of the University of Milan.

The long-term goal

A model that combines agricultural production, biodiversity, and urban integration. The model will produce and use energy that is 100% renewable and clean.
The project is set in farmlands that have been restored to their natural beauty, where humans and all living creatures can find a home.

Fondazione Capellino will experiment with these new agricultural models on the Italian farmlands surrounding its future headquarters: 40 acres of fields, of which 12 acres are untouched woodlands, that were intensively cultivated up to 2017.
 
The project consists out of three pillars, aiming to regenerate the entire habitat and designing an alternative agricultural model that is replicable. The acquired knowledge and skillsets will be freely available to everyone.
 
Agricultural recovery through experimentation. The project will put syntropic agriculture theories to the test. These sustainable theories were developed by Ernst Gotsch and they are harmless for our health and the environment. The University of Milan is a partner of the project and will obtain as well as examine the results. These results will be made available to the public.

 
Farmland, woods, and houses will be restored to their natural state in order to form a harmonious sanctuary and give a soul to the place.

The restoration project

The villa in the Monferrato hills, which will be named Villa Fortuna, is now a derelict building of historical interest, and the surrounding landscape provides opportunities for the model. It will become the home of Fondazione Capellino once the building works are finalised. The surrounding, currently vacant, agricultural buildings will become the farmstead and hospitality area for Fondazione Capellino guests.

The restoration will be carried out in a way that respects the landscape and the environment and it will employ green building innovations. The process will use local, renewable energy that won’t produce CO2, and it will collect and reuse domestic, as well as, rainwater.  

How can we accomplish this together?

  • If you have a dog or a cat, choose Almo Nature over any other brand

  • Spread the word! Talk about our initiative to relatives, friends, or anyone else who could possibly help.

  • Support initiatives and sign petitions that are related to the project

100% of Almo Nature’s profits are used to help animals through various projects of Fondazione Capellino, in total transparency and without any external funding.

When you buy Almo Nature products, you act for change.

Restore the land

The most important thing for us to do, in order to make everyone understand the benefits of this conservation approach, is to illustrate it, and that is exactly what we’re doing:

  • We make use of agricultural methods that respect the fertility of the soil and the local ecosystem, and implement these to restore the land.

  • All of this is done in continuous cooperation with experts, and the results will be verified by the academic world.

Support the project

Our next step, after finalising the recovery phase, is to share the results with each and every academic institution and community that could find this interesting.

We also hope that this experiment can also become a cue for other projects to develop.




Want to get involved?

Some of us think there’s nothing we can do to protect wildlife or help to preserve biodiversity. But they are wrong, everyone is capable of helping nature. It’s the little things that make a difference. These are some of the actions you can take now:

  • Give Almo Nature food

    Your cat or dog will enjoy a completely natural, high-quality meal, and 100% of the profits from your purchase will be allocated to our projects aiming to protect cats, dogs and biodiversity.

    • When you buy food for your companion animal, the profit is returned to nature.

    • Through our projects, we find new ways to protect biodiversity and restore the ecological balance.

    • We focus on solutions that don’t request permanent external support. So you become a part of integral approach, not a one-time effort.

  • Share our idea with friends & family

    Follow us on social media and share our updates and stories with your friends and followers. Each share counts, and every purchase is an opportunity for another animal.

    • Wild animals get a real chance at peaceful coexistence with humans in a preserved eco-system.

    • The restored lands give a new home to the wildlife that was forced to live on what was left of their natural habitats.

    • An increased number of people find out how they can help to preserve biodiversity and restore the eco balance.

  • Speak up for nature

    Join us and we’ll notify you whenever your voice is needed for a cause, such as changing animal welfare legislation (e.g. by signing petitions or completing surveys)

    • A compassionate attitude towards animals

    • Less cruelty, more  love and care in the world
