The „Café Botanico“ is a cooperation between traditional italian food and modern concepts of urban gardening, permaculture and food sovereignty. On 1000 square meters Stefano, Martin and Massimo are planting old species of vegetables, fruits and wild plants following the concept of permaculture. The wildlife garden with over 200 eatable plants can be visited all-season. At the restaurant all plants are being washed and prepared for special meals like: Minestrone with corn from Umbria, Goulash with local bush meat and housemade cake with fruits from the garden. The etablishment is getting along without any subsidies, public funds or bank advance, but self-finances trough the catering trade and selling the agricultural products.
