PUNTA STILO ASSOCIATION: THE REALIZATION OF A DREAM
Today more than ever, the need to know what we eat has become a priority, both for health and environment protection and for the rediscovery of lost flavors.
The Calabrian lands were very rich in varieties adapted over the centuries, resistant to adversity and with unique flavors. A dramatic impoverishment of the genetic heritage of agricultural species has been carried out by big seed companies which promote high yield plants also through genetic modification.
Fortunately, many farmers and consumers have noticed that behind the promise of high production hides the rip-off of having hardy plants that require therefore continuous treatments through which the true flavors have been lost. The Punta Stilo Association is involved in the creation of a Calabrian organic farms network which could guarantee a production chain controlled in all its phases and then be able to reach the final consumer directly without intermediaries. Punta Stilo is the name of the location from which the Association project started. An area that someone has called "middle ground", a sort of no-man's land. In part it is true because many inhabitants have emigrated elsewhere and entire areas are abandoned.
The ambitious project is to bring out another image of Calabria: producing according to the biological method, respecting the environment and workers.
The goal is to give hope to those who want
to work in Calabria and no to emigrate
to put back into production the lands that have been abandoned for too many years
to create enterprises despite the politics, the crime and the financial system
to recover abandoned productions such as natural fibers (broom, hemp, flax, etc.) and ancient fruits and vegetables
But the Punta Stilo Association has also the objective to protect and enhance the territory. There are many places of enormous historical and environmental value, abandoned to themselves, with the risk of ending up in the hands of some "speculator". For these reasons, among the associated companies there are also tourist facilities, restaurants and beautiful agritourisms with educational farms that offer educational experiences in a unique rural and environmental context, as well as mountain hikes, villages and archaeological sites.
