Learning by Doing. Preserving and Divulging the Cultural Heritage of Your Community
A community museum is a virtual or real, indoor or outdoor authentic experience representative of and rooted in the local history and traditions of a territory.
It works best with informal, friendly interactions between guest and host
Participants are new entrepreneurs, existing small businesses, nonprofits and local government working together in a laboratory designed to acquire and constantly update knowledge and learning skills.
The result: a sustainable and full cultural immersion that is both product and market oriented and generates new wealth for your community.
Culinary Experiences
There are several fascinating examples throughout America and in Italy of a resurgence in farming that cater to an ever increasing demand for local, quality and sustainable food, wine and ale consumption.
In US Communities it is fueled by downtown and residential development and a demand for urban farming as well as nightlife and weekend amenities for local citizens and out of town visitors.
In the Washington, DC area, both in the US capital city and its suburban communities, the local economy is driven by government spending, highly educated and environmentally conscious citizens. Here, the community of Silver Spring has undergone such a transformation and is excellent base from which travelers can take in the sights and monuments of the capital and beyond.
