Tularú is a cultural and agricultural project which rose to a start-up after a few years. As a center of sustainable production, their main goal is to use the cultural value of the traditional production techniques in order to create participation. According to them, the bread produced in their farm is not their bread. It is the bread of the territory because everyone has been involved in the production. For that, they use sustainable practices in agriculture and organize events connected to them. Through the work produced on the work-camp, the volunteers and the locals are going to prepare everything for the feast (a small festival organized around the farmers work). In 4 years they have created a local network and for the second time, in 2019 another farm in the territory, named Colle Berardino, will organize another harvest party, in Rocca Sinibalda (30 km from Tularù), on the 14th july. One of the tasks of this year camp in Tularù, will be to help the friends in Rocca Sinibalda. In the same way, they will help during the harvest party in Tularù. After the parties in Colle Berardino and Tularù, there will be other activities with local associations in Cittaducale, like cleaning rural walks or others.
