Orto Sociale Naturale Dott. Agronomo Massimo Badino (Natural Social Garden)
The Natural Social Garden was started - in 2017 - by the municipal administration of Castelnuovo Belbo on the impulse of the agronomist and then city councilor Massimo Badino, who died prematurely in January 2020 at the age of 43.
The Garden was created from the recovery of an uncultivated area.
It consists of about 15 lots of land divided into a synergistic organic garden through the reintroduction of ancient seeds and Egyptian onion, with plots dedicated to schools, the elderly and people with motor disabilities.
In May 2020 the mayor of Castelnuovo Belbo, Aldo Allineri, won the national photographic contest "Vegetable garden, Egyptian onion and Biodiversity", organized by the Ligurian writer and ecologist Marco Damele to promote biodiversity and tell the best of the horticultural tradition in time of Coronavirus and botany of our territory through a photograph.
