You can put fresh organic vegetables on the table for children in need of the safety, care, protection and educational programs of the NGO AMURTEL Romania. By sponsoring the farm, you are directly giving them healthy food.
Gradina Bio AMURTEL began in 2013, and for 10 years operated as a Community Supported Agriculture project, delivering weekly baskets of vegetables to a group of supporters in Bucharest and Buzau.
Currently, the focus of the garden has shifted in order to guarantee food security and sustainability of AMURTEL’s main social project for the children of the neighboring village, Panatau. This is the AMURTEL Family, the Residential Center that cares for 12 children who have been removed from situations of neglect or abuse. In addition to them, Gradina Bio also produces vegetables for 12 other vulnerable people in the area, thus reaching a total of 24 beneficiaries.

The farm is also now becoming a model of regenerative agriculture practices, thanks to funding from Auchan and a dedicated group of volunteers from the University of Horticulture in Bucharest.
In the near future, the farm will host Erasmus exchanges, permaculture trainings and promote sustainable practices.
