Mirca Salsi is the sales manager of the agricultural cooperative Ortolani, whose membership base is composed of about 40 agricultural producers, mostly located in the Emilia Romagna Region.
Among the producers who confer their produce to the Ortolani cooperative we find the Edible Park of Reggio Emilia. The Edible Park is an agroforestry-based farm that supplies fresh produce to people from the city. The farm spans about 1 ha of farmland and it is jointly promoted by the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, 2 cooperatives (production and processing) and by the CRPA-Research Center on Animal Production.
In this video Mirca talks about the role that the Ortolani Cooperative has had in her professional life and the value of the collaboration with a reality of participation and urban agriculture such as that of Edible Park. Edible Park is the second LIVERUR pilot in Reggio Emilia.
