The Ark of Flavors to Save
Saturday, October 25, 2014 - 12:00 PM Sala Agricoltura Familiare (Sala Rossa)
Industrial agriculture is drastically reducing today’s variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, cheeses…. Everyone knows that the Bengal tiger needs to be saved, but the Itamba Cowpea from Kenya and the Kabog Millet from the Philippines are also precious and staples for the communities that grow them. The Ark of Taste is a living catalog of the immense heritage of biodiversity at risk of extinction and promotes the work of many local communities essential for preservation.
