School day and stay

When learning rhymes with having fun

The school represents the environmental and social context where our children live and is a very heterogeneous reality from a cultural point of view, but also from a food point of view. With the motto "mens sana in corpore sano", in recent years more and more schools have been proposing food education projects involving not only children, but also their parents. Animations, visits, itineraries and activities and educational workshops: Nihil agricultura melius (Cicero)

Gelindo proposes themes related to peasant life, lived together with the family of farmers.

The educational farm allows children to learn about genuine food and how it is produced.

Our goal is to teach them the rudiments of organic cultivation and to recognize the true flavors of foods produced according to nature, hoping that after the day, they will no longer eat stereotyped and anonymous sandwiches, snacks and frozen foods, but prefer tasty cold cuts, fragrant cheeses, fragrant soups, homemade genuine sweets.

Polenta, buckwheat bread, grape juice and organic apples will accompany their day.


The AGRICAMPUS "School Day" standard full program includes the following moments:

  • welcoming the group, welcome toast with sweets, organic apple juice, and grape juice
  • explanation of the meaning of "educational farm" by oral illustration and/or image projection and presentation of the itinerary on the farm
  • visit to the farm with an itinerary to be followed on foot or (to be agreed) by agribus and carriage
  • educational workshop: manual and sensorial experience
  • polenta ritual: tastings of polenta cooked on a live fire and stirred by the kids 
  • agriturist lunch: dishes and drinks produced and cooked according to nature
  • free afternoon: games and visits to be programmed with the teaching staff
  • greeting to the plants, animals and farmers followed by a goodbye toast with fruit, organic apple juice and grape juice

Timetable: from 09.30 to 16.30, with the possibility of organizing visits of even half a day, with or without lunch.

These "phases" are so proposed to better understand the objective of the visit, assimilate the contents of the food chain: "From the earth to the table" or "If you don't work the land, you will NOT eat". What is the meaning of knowing cereals if we do not know where they come from, how they are grown, how they are processed; without tasting the immediate transformation into food (at least a taste of polenta and cheese)?

That is why we suggest booking the planned sequence and not only some phases within the offer as in an "à la carte" menu, even if programs can be customized.
